Chris Benoit's taste for gold led him to an exciting Intercontinental Championship match with Rob Van Dam. RVD scaled the top rope for the Five Star Frog Splash, but right before he came crashing down on Benoit, The Crippler moved out of the way and locked on the Crippler Crossface. RVD got to the ropes to break the hold, but Benoit simply reapplied the submission move. RVD finally escaped the hold, but Benoit rolled him up and pinned him, using the ropes for leverage.
