Morrison got the early advantage and teed away on Miz before Miz attacked Jo-Mo's knee. Miz continued to attack the knee, and then introduced a kendo stick from under the ring and nailed Morrison on the leg with it. Morrison was able to get the stick and nailed Miz with several shots and took the match outside the ring and got a two-count. Morrison used the kendo stick as a cane and chased Miz to the top of the stage, where he was thrown head first into the WWE logo by Miz. Miz then planted Morrison with the SCF on the stage. Morrison is out and the referee calls off the match and awards it to the Miz, who stood over a fallen Morrison as the ref checked on him.
Morrison was then placed on a stretcher and Miz took a mic and heads back in the ring as Morrison is stretchered to the back. He said that last week it was R-Truth, this week it was John Morrison. Next week... we'll see. He then says that he's the only one that can make this kind of impact and he can do it because he's "awesome."
