Batista vs. Alberto Del Rio

Batista was booed as soon as his music hit. Del Rio came out on crutches and said that due to Batista’s attack, he wasn’t able to compete. He then nailed him with a ctrutch he bought to the ring and disrobed to reveal his tights. He kept working him over with shots to the back and knees. He nailed Batista again and yelled for the bell.

Batista pulled himself to his feet and attacked Del Rio. The crowd was behind ADR and booing Batista. They were chanting, “Boo-Tista.”

Alberto tied up Batista in the ropes and used the armbar. He then began stomping the hell out of him. The crowd chanted for “Daniel Bryan”, I guess in protest of Batista being in the main event of Wrestlemania.

Del Rio cinched in an armbar. Now, the crowd was loudly chanting for CM Punk. Batista fired back but ADR snapped his arm with his knees. JBL acknowledged it was an unusual crowd cheering for ADR. A “Y2J” chant broke out.

Batista sent ADR into the corner shoulder-first. Batista nailed him with several shoulderblocks but was kicked down. ADR nailed a double stomp off the ropes. The crowd began chanting for “RVD.” ADR nailed a kick to the head for a two count, but Batista grabbed the bottom rope at the last second. Batista was covered again but kicked up. Now, it was a “We want Lesnar” chant.

Batista caught ADR with a spear and covered him for a two count. He worked over ADR but was caught with a backstabber. ADR missed a swanton and was nailed with a spinebuster. The crowd booed the hell out of that. ADR escaped a Batista Bomb attempt and kicked Batista in the head for a two count.

ADR called for the cross armbreaker but was shoved into the buckles and nailed with the Batista Bomb for the pin.

Your winner, Batista!

#8 Dolph Ziggler vs. Alberto Del Rio – World Heavyweight Championship Match (WWE Payback)

WE SAID: As Dolph Ziggler will surely tell you, he kind of has everything going for him, and as of last summer he had the World Heavyweight Championship, to boot. But the first defense of his hard-won World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Payback still left the WWE Universe heartbroken for the show-stealing antihero they loved to hate.

The then-champion had fought hell and high water to claim the World Heavyweight Title belonging to Alberto Del Rio (who had recently been reborn as a folk hero to the people),and fate turned against him almost immediately when an extremely serious concussion promptly took Dolph out of the game. Ziggler’s return against Del Rio at WWE Payback seemed like it would cement his spot at the top until “Mexico’s Greatest Export” took the easy way out and teed off on The Showoff’s formerly concussed skull, kicking him repeatedly in an effort to not so much beat Dolph as humiliate him.

Ziggler refused to stop the match even with his girlfriend AJ Lee in tears at ringside, but the damage had already been done, and the ruthless Del Rio didn’t even have to ply his signature Cross Armbreaker to take back the gold. If the crushed look on Ziggler’s face wasn’t enough, the sentiment was shared by every single member of the WWE Universe. Yes, it’s hard to feel sorry for a guy like Ziggler when he’s a villain, but what happened wasn’t so much an instance of payback as the big reveal: The Showoff was always the people’s hero, and Del Rio the slithering snake with an eye for gold. Dolph didn’t just get taken for a ride; we felt like we’d all been duped along with him.

THEY SAID: “Sometimes people go to the dark side or go to the good side because it’s planned out or that’s what’s ‘best for business,’ or it just happens on a whim. For someone like myself, who, as a career bad guy for eight years, was getting more cheers than some of the good guys because of the entertainment value I deliver, it organically happened. And to run with something organically and make it that much better is a gift that Del Rio has and also I have. [He is] so good at what he does … we have this thing where I don’t know him that well. We’re not friends, we never were. But when we get in that ring, you can see, not the hatred, butit’s this awesome chemistry we have as opponents, no matter the situation. I was crushed to lose the World Title; you can legitimately see it in my face that I am crushed I did not come out on top in that match. But it was an awesome experience and I don’t know that any two people in this business could have done it better.” – DOLPH ZIGGLER

#15 Alberto Del Rio vs. Christian – World Heavyweight Championship Match (SummerSlam 2013)

What happens when you combine Christian’s jaw-jacking punches, Alberto Del Rio’s ferocious kicks, a World Heavyweight Championship and a sold-out STAPLES Center in Hollywood? Well, as the WWE Universe found out at this year’s SummerSlam, one helluva match. For roughly 15 minutes, Captain Charisma and The Essence of Excellence savagely tried turning each other’s faces into hamburger meat, with dozens of stinging strikes echoing throughout the arena, and thanks to their almost uncomfortable display of brutality, an instant classic was born.

Far be it, however, for two of WWE’s premier technicians to rely on vicious strikes alone. There were elements of lucha libre and traditional mat wrestling. Most impressively, Del Rio scouted Christian to a tee: A Christian back elbow was turned it into a top-rope backstabber, and a late-game spear attempt was halted by a dropkick to the face. Christian did eventually hit the spear, but in doing so, further weakened his already injured shoulder, leaving him an easy target for the Cross Armbreaker.
