Winner (by KO) and NEW WWE US Champion: Dolph Ziggler
A limo is shown pulling up backstage and R-Truth gets out with a big smile on his face, and the WWE Championship over his shoulder. Josh Matthews tries to interrupt, but Truth says he's on his way to a party and he's invited. He passes Eve and invites her to the party as well. Eve says she doesn't know who he is, and Truth says no one knows who he is anymore. Truth says he's like to dedicate this victory to all the little Jimmy's, and the little Jenny's, ending with 'that's the Truth'. Truth says 'be gone' and waves Eve off.
Todd Grisham is backstage with the Miz. Miz says he's a former WWE Champion, and he's sick of hearing about Alex Riley. He calls Alex Riley a rescue dog that he saved from NXT. Miz says all he was good for was carrying a briefcase, and that's all he's ever done, and after tonight, Riley can go back to being someone's bag carrier. Miz ends with his signature line, letting us know who he is, and what he thinks of himself.
- We get a video package that details the events that have led up to this match, from WWE NXT, all the way to Riley's turn on the Miz.
The Miz vs. Alex Riley
Miz has the briefcase in hand and he shows it to Riley before the match, yelling at him, so Riley kicks Miz in the gut and takes the fight to him, delivering punches down on the mat. The Miz bails from the ring and tries to run around and tries Riley, but Riley comes in and continues to beat down Miz in the corner. The ref pulls Riley away and this allows Miz to sneak in a couple of quick shots to turn the tide of the match. Miz lays in with a couple of big knees to the guts before delivering a kick to the face to a sitting Riley. Miz lays in with a couple of big punches to Riley before picking him up and tearing at his face.
Miz stomps and kicks at Riley before delivering a sick DDT to Riley, who is on his knees. Miz hits the running kick to the face to a sitting Riley again and then he stares down the crowd, then Riley, for a bit. Riley struggles to get back to his feet, and Miz takes him right down with a big right hand. Riley gets up again, and Miz takes him down once more. A third time, and Riley pushes Miz into the corner and buries his shoulder into Miz's gut, but when he charges the Miz, Miz moves and Riley's shoulder connects with the ring post and he falls to the outside. Miz follows out and delivers a running boot to Riley's face before sending him back into the ring.
Miz pulls Riley's head out of the ring, and from the floor delivers a running kick to the head, but it's only good enough to put Riley down for a two count Miz taunts Riley, but Riley connects with a big right hand. Miz is able to lock in a rear chin lock, and Riley falls down to the mat.
Riley begins to fight up to his feet, and hits Miz with a couple of punches to the gut, but Miz turns Riley around and delivers a reverse DDT for another two count. Miz looks shocked as he has his hands over his mouth and is shaking his head. Miz gets to his feet and connects with his signature clothesline in the corner. Miz goes to the top and leaps off with a double ax handle smash, but when he goes for the pin, Riley still kicks out at two.
Miz picks Riley up and places him on the top rope, pulling him down into a tree of woe. Miz stomps at Riley's midsection before backing up.

Cole begins berating Riley, so Riley grabs him by the tie and pulls him over the table, to the delight of Booker and Lawler.
