The WWE Championship match between Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler was the semi-main event at Stomping Grounds in Tacoma, Washington. This match took place in a steel cage with the story being that the cage would keep Xavier Woods and Big E from getting involved.
Kingston “injured” his leg which meant he would have trouble climbing the cage later on in the match. The finish was Dolph crawling through the door but Kingston was able to drive through the ropes and land first.
For what it’s worth, these guys are advertised for another match next month at Extreme Rules so this feud might not be done yet. Big E and Woods celebrated with Kofi after the match.
Charly Caruso interviewed Kofi on the stage. Kofi said Dolph is a heck of a competitor but Kofi said he promised to walk out of the PPV as champion and that is exactly what he did.
