Intercontinental champion Curtis Axel def. R-Truth
Curtis Axel may consider himself to be more perfect than Perfect, but the Intercontinental Champion was left at the mercy of “The Best in the World” when CM Punk jumped Axel after a match on Raw. The Paul Heyman-cosigned Hennig prodigy matched up well in combat with R-Truth, and no sooner had Axel dispatched the former U.S. Champion than The Straight Edge Superstar ambushed him from behind, making a beeline for Heyman himself moments later. Axel’s timely interference allowed the mad scientist to escape through the crowd with his latest acolyte, but one can only wonder if Heyman will be so lucky come SummerSlam.
