Even though Alberto Del Rio was able to successfully retain the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXIX, he would not leave the Meadowlands with the title. The night after his successful title defense against Jack Swagger, he found himself fighting both Jack Swagger and his manager, Zeb Coulter, in a Handicap Match inside of the Izod Center. Just as he did the night before, Alberto made Jack tap out to the Cross-Arm Breaker. However, Alberto had no opportunity to celebrate this victory. During the match, Alberto suffered an injury to his ankle which was caused by Jack Swagger's Patriot Lock. When medics began attending to Alberto, Dolph Ziggler's music hit.
Back in July, Dolph Ziggler won a Money in the Bank Match and that victory gave him the opportunity for a shot at the title whenever he wanted. Dolph wisely chose this opportunity to pounce. Alberto put up a good fight and was even able to trap Dolph in the Cross-Arm Breaker. Ever the opportunist, Dolph got out of the move by punching Alberto's injured leg. Once he escaped the move, Dolph gave Alberto the Zig Zag to become a two-time World Heavyweight Champion.
