Survivor Series’ WWE Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way Match proved to be The Miz & Damien Mizdow’s greatest tag team performance to date as the A-lister and his stunt double walked out of WWE’s fall classic the new WWE Tag Team Champions.
In this Fatal 4-Way title contest only two Superstars would compete inside the ring at the same time, but anybody could be tagged in at any time by anybody with the first team to pick up a pinfall or submission claiming the WWE Tag Team Championships. Stardust and Fernando started off the contest, but it didn’t take long for this match’s unique rules to take effect. The Miz quickly tagged himself in to battle the masked matador as his stunt double, Damien Mizdow kept himself busy on the ring apron mimicking The Awesome One’s every move.
The titleholders seemed determined to not lose their coveted “Cosmic Key” as they remained in control for much of the bout. However, the action soon got Uso Crazy as The Usos took the battle outside the squared circle with double over-the-top-rope dives onto their opponents below. Not to be outdone, Stardust then performed a Fallen Star on the Samoan brothers before El Torito and Diego also jumped onto the pile of bodies strewn around the ring.
Back in the ring Los Matadores along with Gold & Stardust engaged in a huge triple powerbomb off the top rope. One-half of The Usos capitalized with a top rope splash on a fallen Goldust, but The Miz wisely tagged himself in and threw the Samoan Superstar from the ring. However, Miz’s stunt double pulled off the final tag on his own partner – the surprised Miz – to pick up the victory over the Bizarre One.
Now that The Miz & Damien Mizdow have added the WWE Tag Team Champions to their resumes, what’s next for the Hollywood hotshot and his stunt double?
The Miz and Damien Sandow are backstage giving lines to Grumpy Cat. They have a Grumpy Stunt Cat but Grumpy Cat isn’t impressed. Miz says last time Grumpy Cat had a bright idea it ended up in his litter box. Miz comes back and says he’s really a big fan and befriended her on Facebook. He kisses her and walks off.

With eight men set to clash in a Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Title Match at Survivor Series, Monday’s Raw was a strange exercise in tense tag-team cooperation, as WWE Tag Team Champions Gold & Stardust united with The Miz & Damien Mizdow against The Usos & Los Matadores. Or at least, it was tense for the WWE Universe, who clamored for Mizdow while his partners flitted in and out of the ring with varying degrees of success (he would get one brief stint in the ring, but that’s all). Los Matadores took the brunt of their opponents’ punishment, though the tables turned when The Usos entered the fray. After a brief scrum, Stardust found himself facing defeat until Miz and Goldust came to his aid, enabling the titleholder to unleash Dark Matter and save the matchup.
WWE unveiled a new youtube show today where the Miz, along with Damien’s assistance, gives acting lessons to his adoring fans. The first video shows the duo demonstrating “The Mirror Technique” through interpretative dance. I think this might have aired on the app as I’ve seen screencaps floating around twitter earlier in the week but it’s nice to see the full video uploaded, as well as the promise of more to come.
It’s been a while but WWE.com has finally updated Damien’s render to go along with his current look and we here at the site have to say that he looks fantastic. You can check out the full sized image in the gallery along with the new bio icon as well.
This whole stunt-double business has been a boon for The Miz, who has used “Damien Mizdow” to frustrate U.S. Champion Sheamus at every turn since failing to recapture his own Intercontinental Championship from Dolph Ziggler. This week’s installment of embarrassment for The Celtic Warrior culminated in a bizarre count-out defeat at the hands of The Awesome One, who broke out a little Twin Magic to confound the Irishman after Sheamus chased both Miz and Mizdow beneath the apron. Seeking the original Miz, the Irishman instead produced Mizdow, who distracted the Star-Spangled champion long enough for Miz to beat the referee’s 10-count back to the ring. You’re welcome.
