WWE taped the following for this week’s episode of WWE Superstars prior to Monday Night Raw from the Smoothie King Center in NOLA:
* Ryback w/Curtis Axel b. Dolph Ziggler. Hot crowd for Ziggler, big heat for Ryback. Curtis Axel chant broke out during a rest hold so expect random/announcer chants tonight. Axel distracted Ziggler leading to Ryback taking control and winning.
* Titus O’Neil b. Kofi Kingston. Finish came quick after Kofi went for a diving cross body and slipped. Started nursing his foot immediately. Can’t know for sure if it was worked but the finish was really awkward and the referee helped Kofi out of the ring and up the ramp. He hasn’t put any weight on it since the spot. If I had to guess, it was legit.
Thanks to Wrestling News World’s Brooks Oglesby for texting these in.
