The “All-American American” lost the match after refusing to break the excruciating hold of the Ankle Lock when the high-flying Kingston had reached for the bottom rope, resulting in his disqualification.
There was only one competitor standing tall at the end of it though as Swagger looked to punish Kofi for a recent defeat to him on Friday Night SmackDown. The match began at a frenzied pace but Swagger, the former World Heavyweight Champion, soon imposed his excellent ground-based game to nullify Kingston’s aerial threat.
Indeed Swagger looked in control at one point and teased his Ankle Lock twice, with Kofi managing to escape on both occasions.
Kingston’s response was to hit a WWE Universe favourite, the Boom Drop, but he missed with his ensuing finishing move, Trouble in Paradise, and then saw Swagger kick out of a narrow two count with a following Diving Cross Body drop.

Swagger, though, had other ideas and although Kofi reversed his Gutwrench Powerbomb attempt, he then rolled through Kofi’s STO signature move and locked in the hold with Kingston writhing around the ring in agony.
Kingston reached the bottom rope but Swagger held on through the 5 count and got himself disqualified by the official but sent a clear message to his opponent and other superstars on the SmackDown roster.
The Ankle Lock has already led to the Big Show and Rey Mysterio spending time on the sidelines – who will be on Swagger’s hit list?
Monday Night RAW’s participation on the show was via Diva action, with the Bella Twins taking on the crafty Alicia Fox and the tone-deaf Jillian.
NXT rookies, Jamie Keyes, with the Bella Twins, and Maxine with Alicia Fox watched on intently at ringside.
The action though was over very quickly as the clever Bella’s again found another way to foil Jillian, adding to a long list of humiliating defeats by her to the twins.
