July 19 (THAINDIAN NEWS) After the ‘Money in the Bank’ pay per view event which was held over the weekend, the WWE was left without a Champion as ‘WWE Monday Night Raw’ began. Vince McMahon made his way to the ring to announce an Eight Man Single Elimination Tournament which would feature Dolph Ziggler, Rey Mysterio, Jack Swagger, R-Truth, Kofi Kingston, Alberto Del Rio, Alex Riley, and The Miz. The winner would be the new WWE Champion.

As Alberto Del Rio and Kofi Kingston took to the ring for their match, Del Rio held the ‘Money in the Bank’ briefcase which he had won on Sunday. Del Rio tells everyone that he hopes John Cena gets fired, since Vince had promised to fire him if he let CM Punk win. Del Rio starts off as the dominant man in the match. Kingston pulls some of his terrific drop kicks, and the battle goes between the two. Out of no where Kofi put Del Rio on the mat for the three count, and won the match. Kofi is on to the semi finals.
