Dolph Ziggler nailed a DDT and got two near falls on the former Universal Champion. Ziggler hit a second Zigzag and Roman kicked out yet again.

Roman went for a spear but Ziggler turned it into a Famouser. Ziggler was looking to end things but The Big Dog instead hit a spear and got the three count, winning the match.
