In honor of his new film “The Marine 4: Moving Target,” — scheduled for release Friday on Digital HD and April 21 on DVD and Blu-ray — The Miz presented a special edition of his controversial show to praise … himself.
But after his co-star Summer Rae interrupted to debate her own contribution to the film, the subject moved to Damien Mizdow. When Miz’s former employee emerged, the A-Lister offered him a chance to apologize and say he was sorry. Mizdow did just that, before knocking The Awesome One out of the ring, destroying the “Miz TV” set and planting a surprise celebratory kiss on Summer Rae.
It seems strange on the surface that an “A-lister” like The Miz would finally go toe-to-toe against Damien Mizdow on Raw instead of the bright lights of a pay-per-view. Then again, any star worth his salt gives the people what they want, and they want to see Mizdow beat the Moneymaker off his former boss. Alas, the people will have to wait.
Mizdow’s attempt at retribution was full of more frustration than strategy and Miz was quick to take advantage. A brutal, yet sloppy, opening salvo landed Mizdow in a world of trouble and, despite nearly trapping Miz in the Figure-Four Leglock, Miz’s sneakiness won out when he rolled his protégé up with a handful of tights for an ill-gotten win. It was hardly a Hollywood ending, but something tells us a sequel is soon to come.
Back from the break and we see Ryback’s win over The Miz on SmackDown. Ryback is getting a “feed me more” chant going as we see the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy at ringside. The Miz is out next with Damien Sandow, who gets cheered while Miz is booed. We see a sidebar from earlier with Miz says he will win the Andre Battle Royal because his personal assistant in the match will ensure he wins, or else he will be fired. Fans chant for Sandow as the match starts.
Miz starts and unloads on Ryback in the corner. Ryback comes out and hits a huge slam. Miz rolls to the floor in front of Sandow. Ryback holds him and tells Sandow to punch Miz. Fans cheer for Sandow to do it. He clutches his fist like he wants to but Miz fights Ryback off. Miz tells Sandow to put his fist down and turns around to a shot from Ryback. Ryback brings him in the ring and hits a spinebuster. Ryback hits a Meathook clothesline and Shellshocked for the win.
- After the match, Ryback gets another chant going and leaves as Sandow comes in and fans his jacket at him. Sandow helps Miz up but Miz drops him with a Skull Crushing Finale. The crowd boos big time. Miz’s music hits and he leaves with Sandow recovering in the ring.
The Miz and Damien Sandow are backstage with the Miz complaining about how his jacket was packed as there’s lint on it. Miz mentions that he needs to win the Andrew the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and Sandow’s excitement finally gets the better of him and he cuts in to thank Miz.
He goes ont to explain that ever since the Miz fired him from his stunt double job he’s been received phone calls from agents with all sorts of offers for him. After a tense pause the Miz orders Sandow back to lint rolling his jacket and an exasperated Sandow slowly complies. As the camera starts to pull away Miz shoots Sandow one last annoyed look clearly not happy about these new offers.
Fastlane Kickoff Pre-show
The Miz makes his way to the ring with Mizdow, who gets a pop from the crowd to the agitation of Miz. They hit the ring and Miz get booed while Sandow keeps gets cheered. Angirly Miz asks Mizdow what he thinks he’s doing and fans start chanting “we want Mizdow.” Miz ignores them to say that this part of the ring is for Superstars and guests, and personal assistants sit in the corner.
Miz orders Mizdow to sit in the corner of the ring and after a slight hesitation Mizdow does exactly that. The Miz then welcomes us to MizTV and gets booed for it. He says his guest will be paying attention to Reigns vs. Bryan tonight and brings out Paul Heyman to a pop. Miz asks if Brock Lesnar will be here tonight and Heyman announces that he will not and goes on to talk about both Roman and Bryan before he stops himself to ask Miz if Mizdow is with him. He lets the Miz know he’s uncomfortable with how Mizdow is staring at him.
Miz responds to this by yelling at Mizdow and tells him if he wants to act like a child he will treat him like a child before demanding that he face the crowd and sit back down. Mizdow looks to stand up for himself before finally backing down and does as instructed and Miz turns his attention back to the Heyman interview while Mizdow spends the rest of the interview silent and in his corner.
