Drew McIntyre and Kofi Kingston threw everything they could at each other. Kingston proved his win over Lashley wasn’t a fluke, and he could go toe-to-toe with the best. As for McIntyre, he tried his best to shut down the New Day member and face Lashley at Hell in a Cell,.

The match received enough of time for Kofi and Drew to build a great contest. McIntyre busted out some big moves, from the Alabama Slam on the apron to a bone crunching Michinoku Driver. It looks like the Michinoku Driver is now a permanent part of Drew’s arsenal, and it looked outstanding.

McIntyre even pulled out a sit-out powerbomb for a nearfall, after which Kofi fought back. Kingston sidestepped the charging Scotsman and followed it with a huge frog splash. With the WWE Champion now observing from ringside, Kofi took advantage and wiped out his opponent and Lashley.

In the end, the irate champion interrupted the match and assaulted both McIntyre and Kingston. The referee called for the bell, and a terrific match ended in a disappointing no contest. However, Adam Pearce straightened things out instantly.
