Check out what happened during tonight’s match below.

A headbutt from Owens led to an early advantage for the champion. As he locked in a headlock, Owens pointed out that he was a bigger favorite than the hometown hero Ziggler.

Owens continued to dish out the punishment, and whipped Ziggler into the turnbuckle with more force than anyone in recent memory has been able to show. The referee had to keep Owens away to check on The Show-Off before allowing the match to continue.

Owens hit a pair of vicious senton splashes, but still wasn’t able to put Ziggler away. Perhaps getting a bit frustrated, Owens took his time showing off a bit, and Ziggler side-stepped a shoulder tackle in the corner, sending Owens shoulder-first into the ringpost and to the outside.

When the action returned to the ring, Ziggler was finally able to get some momentum going, hitting a series of elbow drops onto Owens. A pin attempt only got a two count.

Owens regrouped and managed to get Ziggler down in the corner, setting up his signature cannonball splash.

After Owens hit a suplex-slam from the top rope, the action moved to the outside of the ring, and there was a brief superkick party both on the outside and back in the ring. After a Ziggler superkick, he fell into a pin attempt for two, and Owens rolled to the outside. When Ziggler followed, Owens attempted an apron powerbomb, only to have it reversed into a hurricanrana with Owens going head-first into the ring steps.

Back in the ring, Ziggler hit a Fame-asser for a two-count, and then Owens ducked under a superkick attempt, in which Ziggler almost hit the referee. The brief distraction let Owens hit his own superkick, followed by a short-arm, pop-up powerbomb for the victory.

Two straight above-average matches to kick off Fastlane? I’ll take it! Hope the rest of the show can live up to the openers here.
