Kofi Kingston kicks off this week’s Halloween-themed episode!
Kofi Kingston v. Ryback
Kofi quickly takes it to Ryback, sending him into the corners. Kofi tries to chip down Ryback, until Ryback knocks him down something fierce. Ryback rag dolls Kofi, until Kofi came back with striking offence, however, Ryback took control again, body slamming Kofi. Kofi rolls out of a splash attempt, however Ryback locks in a submission hold, driving the forearm into Kofi’s face. Kofi slides out, and Ryback tries to get some semblance of control, however, Kofi hits a deep arm drag. Kofi goes for Trouble in Paradise, however, Ryback rolled out of the ring, only to get hit with a sick plancha to the outside. Kofi takes control of Ryback after a stair-assisted ax-handle, but as Ryback entered the ring, Kofi ate a boot, as we go to commercial.
We come back from commercial, and Ryback knocks Kofi down, and covered him for a two count. Ryback lifts Kofi up and hits the Jackhammer for a pin attempt, in which Kofi kicked out at two. Ryback, slowing the pace down, chops Kofi’s chest, however, Kofi takes advantage to dish out some chops of his own, until Ryback powers Kofi into the opposite corner and tosses him like a kettlebell. Ryback uses the ropes to add pressure to Kofi’s head. Lifting Kofi, Ryback taunts him and gets a few slaps for his trouble, until Ryback countered with a sick belly to belly! Ryback covers Kofi, who kicked out at two. Ryback locks in a modified Torture Rack, which Kofi slides out off, and starts some offense. His offence continues until Ryback spine busters a springboarding Kofi Kingston. Ryback calls for the Meathook, however, Kofi countered into a spike DDT, keeping both men down. Kofi gets up first and presses the Triangle Button to activate his comeback mechanic! Kofi tries for Trouble in Paradise, however Ryback counters with R2, and Kofi counters his counter into a stack up for a two count kick out! Ryback and Kofi both exchange counters and momentum, until Ryback hits the Meathook…and Shao Kahn commands Ryback to “FINISH HIM!”
Winner via ShellShocked: Ryback

Slater knocks Santino over the ropes after a quick Santino flurry, and taking a page from Emma, has a little trouble skinning the cat!

Fandango rolls outside to catch a breather, and Khali chases Fandango, hitting a clubbing blow to the head! Khali throws Fandango into the ring, and Fandango takes out the knee!
