Kofi Kingston vs. Christian [WWE Intercontinental Championship]
Christian! When is he getting a DVD???
This match is for the vacant Intercontinental Championship. This is the finals of a tournament to crown a new champion. Christian hit a Silver King plancha as they went to a commercial. Christian was in control when we came back. Kofi came back after connecting on the pendulum kick. They went back and forth for a while. Kofi kicked out of the reverse DDT. Christian kicked out of the SOS. Christian called for the Killswitch. Kofi avoided it, rolled through a sunset flip and hit the Trouble in Paradise: 1…2…3!
Christian is the king of WWE television matches in the last five years. The dude just cannot have a bad one, and he makes all of his opponents look good. I could watch hours and hours Christian TV matches.
Match Rating: ***1/4
