MIZTV with Randy Orton & Big Show
The WWE Narrator informed us about the change to the World Heavyweight Championship match, and then Big Show and Randy Orton’s feud was discussed, and their appearance on MizTV was mentioned.
Miz was already in the ring in the MizTV set when the show opened to the arena. He welcomed everyone to the must see talk show MizTV. Miz then said he wanted to make tonight special, and introduced Randy Orton to his show. The announce team went over Orton and Big Show’s match at ringside, and said Orton could be in trouble with in an Extreme match with a giant. After Orton got to the ring, Big Show got a full ring entrance as well. The announce team recalled all the times Big Show knocked out Randy Orton.
Miz reminded the crowd that their match at Extreme Rules would be anything goes. He then said they’ve been having trouble since WrestleMania, and followed up by talking about Orton’s RKO on Big Show at the conclusion of Smackdown last week. He then showed video footage of the RKO, and Big Show didn’t seem to react to it much. Miz then asked Show if that is what we’d see at Extreme Rules. Show said he expected comments like that from a weasel, and the only way Orton hit the RKO was by hitting him from behind.
Show said Orton was a snake in the grass, but at Extreme Rules he’d have all the tools to rip Orton apart. He said his tools were at the ends of his arms, and in St. Louis their match would end with a TKO instead of an RKO. Orton played to the crowd with a glance before responding, and said that was a very entertaining story from Show, but the ending was inaccurate. Orton said there was no way he would let Orton beat him in his home town. He wouldn’t let him beat him in front of his friends, family, and his city.
Orton then said he made a mistake at WrestleMania by trusting him, but all people would remember about Extreme Rules is him striking down the giant. He concluded by saying that if Show wasn’t careful, he wouldn’t wake up. Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter interrupted, and Colter said Extreme Rules would be memorable because Jack Swagger would make Alberto Del Rio say I Quit. He said he could even say it in his own tongue, no mas. He then said on Sunday that Swagger would become the undisputed #1 Contender and you would see Americans rising up.
Del Rio interrupted and told Colter to shut up. He said the only thing people would remember was him becoming #1 Contender, and Ricardo said his name. He then said he would send Colter back to where he came from, so he couldn’t sneak into his business again. Mark Henry then interrupted and said no one would remember anything but him setting world records, and beating Sheamus the worst he’s ever been beaten in his life. He then said people would remember is that he’s the World’s Strongest Man, because “That’s what I do!”
Sheamus then interrupted and called Mark Henry “ol lumpy”. He said that their match at Extreme Rules would be remembered, because he would leave Mark Henry battered and bruised. He then asked why they should wait, because they could make a memory tonight. He charged the ring with a strap in hand, and the babyfaces cleared the heels from the ring.
The Miz vs. Damien Sandow
he Miz took control early with a clothesline and kick. Sandow tried to retreat to the outside, but Miz hit a jumping clothesline from the apron. Sandow kicked Miz as he re-entered the ring and took control. Rhodes got up and grabbed a mic and demanded the crowd stand up and respect Damien Sandow. Sandow then hit a suplex, while the announce team plugged what Wade Barrett was saying on the WWE App about The Miz. Sandow continued the assault with knees and a side Russian Leg Sweep and the Elbow of Disdain.
