The Miz vs. Damien Sandow
Miz takes control with a side headlock. Cole asks Cody if the facial hair has anything to do with his friendship with Sandow. Cody says they are just friends. Cole says the "Love Fest continues." Cole says he meant it as in JBL backing Cody up and not Cody's relationship with Sandow and there is a genuine misunderstanding between all of them and Cole nervously explains so as not to come across as anti-gay. I wonder what they were thinking in gorilla. My, how the world has changed.
Sandow hits a big knee lift to Miz on the apron and takes control with stomps. Cody suddenly is heard dropping his headset and he grabs a mic and tells the audience to stand up and show some respect to Damien Sandow. Sandow hits a beautiful suplex and a knee to the jaw for 2. Sandow hits a drop toe-hold to Miz to the bottom rope and unloads with knees to the gut. Sandow hits the Elbow of Disdain but Miz kicks out.
Miz goes into a flurry and hits his running clothesline in the corner. Miz goes for the figure-4 but Cody tries to interfere and Miz takes care of him. Miz gets the figure-4 for the win.
