Ziggler (L) went berserk during Fiesta Del Rio

Alberto Del Rio held a Championship Fiesta on Smackdown - but he wasn't partying come the end of it.

The Mexican's shindig, which took place to celebrate his World Heavyweight Title win over Dolph Ziggler at the recent Payback pay-per-view, was replete with balloons, a mariachi band and even a Ziggler-faced piƱata, which the champion proceeded to smash open.

But Del Rio's revelry was quashed when Ziggler rushed to the ring, sent his nemesis' personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez, crashing through a table; levelled The Essence of Excellence with his patented Zig Zag - and then flattened Rodriguez once more with a guitar.

Sheamus dished out plenty of punishment, too, during his Dublin Street Fight with Damien Sandow; the Celtic Warrior hitting the Duke of Decency with a Brogue Kick to win a contest that featured bar stools, beer kegs, and even a sack of potatoes.

However, Sandow's mood would have been lifted somewhat afterwards when Teddy Long announced that he would join Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett, Jack Swagger, Antonio Cesaro, Fandango and Dean Ambrose in the World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank Ladder Match on July 14.

Randy Orton, meanwhile, defeated fellow WWE Championship Money in the Bank Ladder Match competitor Kane, downing the Big Red Monster with an RKO after he had been rolled back into the ring by tag-team partner and guest commentator Daniel Bryan.

The Shield suffered just their second defeat as a six-man tag team; Ambrose being Speared and pinned by Christian while his comrades, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, brawled outside the squared circle with The Usos.

Elsewhere, The Miz welcomed Paul Heyman onto MizTV - but finished the show in pain following an assault from Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel, while Natalya bested AJ Lee when the latter was distracted by an AJ-impersonating Kaitlyn.

And Ryback knocked off Justin Gabriel in singles action - before scrambling free of an attack from Chris Jericho, the man he will go one-on-one with at Money in the Bank in Philadelphia.
