First, I have to say that this match was somehow disappointing. It was short and most of the action was outside before the match officially started.
As soon as Alberto Del Rio made his entrance, Big Show rushed from behind and brutally attacked the Mexican aristocrat. However, Mark Henry came out of nowhere and attacked Show. He focused on his supposedly injured leg (I thought he injured his right leg) before slamming him through the announcer's table.
Later, Show entered the ring and the match began. After a brief time of back-and-forth action, Del Rio locked a submission hold on Show's leg. He kept the hold for a while before finally breaking it.
But the damage had already been done. Big Show wasn't able to stand up which made the referee end the match and announce Alberto as the winner.
I guess that Mark Henry's interference saved Del Rio from an inevitable knockout. The match could have gone in a different direction had it not been for Henry's appearance.
Del Rio lost a lot of momentum following Extreme Rules two months ago. After moving to Raw, he was supposed to face Rey Mysterio, but due to John Morrison's injury, the plans were changed. R-Truth faced Mysterio instead, while Del Rio was left with no match at Over the Limit.
His rivalry with Big Show started next after Ricardo Rodriguez accidentally ran over Show as he was driving one of Del Rio's cars.
This led to their match at Capitol Punishment last night. Many people were starting to believe that Del Rio was going down the hill. However, things are different now.
Sure, the victory wasn't the way many people wanted, but it was still good to help Del Rio regain some momentum.
What will happen next? Will he start chasing his destiny again? Or will he have more troubles on his way?
