Alex Riley vs. The Miz
The Miz went to the ring first. Riley was out second to a big pop.
The Miz dominated the opening moments of the match and put a beatdown on Riley and manages to get a couple of two counts along the way. Miz kept punishing Riley, but Riley would keep surviving and kicking out at two.
Riley finally caught a break when Miz charged at him in a corner and Riley moved, sending Miz crotch-first into the post. Riley then tackled Miz and started taking it to his former mentor. Riley nailed a spinebuster for a two count. Riley continued to take advantage of the turn in the match, and took the beating outside of the ring. Riley threw Miz into the announce table. Michael Cole was yelling at Riley, and Riley tossed Cole to the ground. The distraction allowed Miz to kick Riley in the gut and throw him into the ring. Miz got the briefcase, the the referee confiscated it from him. As the ref was getting rid of the briefcase, Riley hit Miz with an impaler DDT and got the pin. Decent match.
Alex Riley defeated The Miz.
Riley celebrated in the ring after the match while the Miz lay dejected outside of the ring.
