Mike Killam

The Undertaker will be on Monday Night Raw later tonight. 

Daniel Bryan's music hits, and the crowd goes crazy! Ziggler's music hits next, and they're even more pleased, until they realize it's not Dolph in action. 

Daniel Bryan vs. Big E Langston

Langston backs Daniel Bryan into a corner and squashes him with a running shoulder thrust as the crowd chants "we want Ziggler". Bryan fights back and lands several kicks to the mid-section, and heads up to the top rope. AJ distracts the referee and Dolph Ziggler throws Bryan off the turnbuckle, sending him crashing down to the mat. Langston hits the "Big Ending" for the 3-count. 

Results: Big E Langston wins via pinfall

Intercontinental Championship Match
Wade Barrett vs. The Miz (c) 

The fans are completely behind Wade Barrett, as he takes The Miz down with a series of big right hands in the corner. Miz slides under the bottom rope and snaps Barrett into a pinfall; two-count. The champ mounts the turnbuckle and lands ten right hands, but gets a pretty mixed reaction from the crowd. Barrett starts to fight back and they brawl around the ring, before taking it to the apron. Wade catches Miz with a neckbreaker, bouncing his head off the apron as we head to commercial. 

As we come back, Barrett hits the Winds of Change on a running Miz, but only manages a two-count. Rest hold is applied, but Miz breaks free with a suplex. They trade right hands and Barrett throws Miz off the ropes with an Irish whip, but Miz lands a kick to the gut, followed by a neckbreaker. DDT by the champion, but again only a two-count. Miz tries to go off the top rope, but Barrett catches him by the leg and tries for a big knee to the jaw, but Miz counters and locks in the Figure Four. Barrett drags them to the ropes and grabs ahold of the bottom rope, much to the joy of the live crowd. 

Wade gets to his feet first, and heads up to the top turnbuckle. Miz fights back and joins him in the high rent distract, trying for a superplex. Barrett drops down to the apron and bashes the champion's skull of the ringpost, and brings down the elbow pad. BULLHAMMER CONNECTS! 1…2….3! 

Results: Winner and new champion, Wade Barrett
