We’re back from break as Miz sends Cody Rhodes to the outside. Miz steps on the apron and delivers an axe handle to the floor. He slams Cody into the barricade a few times before rolling him in. Cody stops him on the apron and slams him arm and shoulder into the ring post. Miz falls to the outside as Cody rolls in. Miz manages to roll in at 8. Cody dominates him for a bit with some meticulous offense working over the arm. Miz fights out of an arm bar but Cody ends up dropping him elbow first on the top turnbuckle and covers for TWO. Cody continues the beating. He delivers a front faced suplex for two. He locks in a short arm scissors and continues his streak of boring offense. He charges at the Miz and gets back body dropped over the top rope. Nice spot. Cody took a big bump there. Cody rolls in and Miz beats on Cody like he just got a hot tag. He rolls Cody up for two. Cody lifts himself up in the corner but takes a vintage Miz corner elbow followed by a forearm from the top rope by Miz. Miz tries to catch his breath and Cody goes right back to the arm. Miz fights back with a modified back breaker for two. Cody escapes the Skull Crushing Finale and sends Miz shoulder first into the ring post. He hits a disaster kick and only gets two. Miz ducks a kick and locks in the Figure Four. It’s over. This match was just “there” for lack of a better term. They had nearly fourteen minutes and never got out of second gear.
OFFICIAL RESULT: The Miz @ 13:23 aired via submission
– Sandow has a microphone on his way to the ring! It’s a damn shame whenever he doesn’t. SILENCE. He cuts a typical Sandow promo on the audience and Sheamus. “You may not like this, but you will learn from it. You’re welcome.”
We’re back as Sandow delivers a scoop slam and gets two. This Sin Cara lighting is distracting and completely unnecessary at this point. Sandow continues the beating on Sin Cara with a few near falls in between. ELBOW OF DISDAIN~! TWOOOOOO. He stays on top of Cara and locks in a side headlock. He whips Sin Cara into the ropes but Cara comes back with a modified elbow thrust followed by a roll up for two. He hits an assisted kick to the back of the head off of the ropes and follows through with a senton attempt! TWO. Sandow hits a powerful looking Rock Bottom for three. New finisher? Sandow looked good here but it was nothing to write home about. Their styles didn’t mesh very well and we got a cookie cutter match as a result.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Damien Sandow @ 5:33 aired via pinfall
– They air a video package of the Cena/Ryback rivalry.
OFFICIAL RESULT: The Usos @ 4:56 via pinfall
OVERALL: All of the matches under-delivered this week. Cody and Miz could have been a lot better but neither man looked motivated to deliver the goods. The rest was inoffensive and boring midcard bouts. Main Event always under-delivers on the go home show to a PPV and this was no different. There’s nothing to see here.
