As expected, Dolph Ziggler was the superstar chosen to replace the injured Alberto Del Rio who had to pull out of Sunday’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view World Title match against Sheamus due to a “serious concussion” he suffered on last week’s SmackDown.
On last night’s RAW, a fatal four way elimination match between Christian, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and The Great Khali took place to determine a new number 1 contender to face Sheamus for his World Title on Sunday. The match came down to Christian and Dolph Ziggler as the final two and Ziggler hit the Zig Zag for the pinfall victory.
Meanwhile, Vince McMahon announced on last night’s RAW that he will be at ringside for the John Cena vs Big Show main event match at WWE No Way Out to fire John Laurinaitis should The World’s Largest Athlete lose his match. Show then accidentally knocked out McMahon with a WMD punch during a skirmish with Cena to end the show.
Here’s the latest card for Sunday’s pay-per-view;
* John Cena vs. Big Show – Steel Cage Match
* Divas Champion Layla vs. Beth Phoenix
* World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler
* WWE Champion CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Kane – Triple Threat Match
* Intercontinental Champion Christian vs. Cody Rhodes
