Dolph is sporting unique, Cleveland-proud tights tonight, so that ought to be well-received.
Owens was in control for a goodÂ portion of the early match, with Ziggler getting in some offense but almost always being quickly cut off. Not a great start for the Showoff. But just like that, Owens gave Dolph an opening, and Ziggler was on fire, throwing everything he could at the champion.
Things picked up considerably from there, with the men trading high spots and near falls.
After getting Owens back in the ring following a Superkick, Dolph looked like he was going to capitalize-except as he went for another Superkick, he nearly hit the official, which caused some hesitation on Dolph’s part and created an opening for Owens. A pop-up powerbomb followed, and 3 seconds later, Kevin Owens is still your IC Champion.
