We're back and Miz is in control in the ring. He pounds Cara on the mat and then in the corner. Miz executes his running clothesline-in-the-corner spot and a flying double axe-handle from up top; he hooks the outside leg and Cara kicks out at 1. Miz hits a combination of neckbreakers and gets 2. Miz misses in the corner and they both struggle to get up. Cara lands some kicks to Miz' leg and hits another head-scissors takedown and a kick to the face. They counter each other in a nice exchange and Cara twists and turns him into a pin.
Winner by pin: Sin Cara
Still to come: Orton vs. Tensai and Bryan vs. Sheamus
We go to commercial.
Miz walks with his Intercontinental Tile on his shoulder in the back and is approached by Matt Striker. Striker says this Sunday he faces an unknown opponent and asks Miz his thoughts. Cody comes into the shot and they start to bicker. Rey Mysterio shows up and says he pinned Miz last week so he deserves a shot at the title. Sin Cara shows up and points to the title. Teddy Long comes in and says of behalf of Booker T, Miz will defend in a Fatal Four-Way.
We go to crowd shots as Cole and Josh send to a video of Kane and Bryan's anger management sessions from Raw. We go to the back where Kane is squeezing a ball with his anger management instructor, Dr. Shelby, on a couch. Bryan shows up and says he's doing it wrong: it's supposed to be in the left hand. They start arguing about both wanting to be the next champion. Dr. Shelby gets up and says "I see that you both have balls." Kane and Bryan both hold up their stress balls. The doc says, "When you squeeze them it helps you feel better. It helps relieve stress. Squeeze the balls and feel the anger wash away. Relax and squeeze." Kane shows his ball and says, "Mine's bigger than yours," and leaves. Bryan looks at his ball and says, "Is it?" We go to commercial.
Kofi comes to the ring as we see a graphic of Kane & Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi & Truth this Sunday at Night of Champions for the tag straps. Kane comes to the ring.
Kane vs. Kofi Kingston
Kofi lands some early kicks but Kane won't go down. Kane lands a knife-hand strike to the throat and takes over on Kofi in the corner. Kane turns the table in Kane's arms and hits a DDT. Kofi flies off the top but gets caught by the throat; Kane hits a chokeslam for the win.
Winner by pin: Kane
Dr. Shelby walks on the stage and gives a disappointed look to Kane with his arms crossed. Kane goes back in the ring and picks Kofi up by the neck. The doc looks at him expectantly and Kane hugs Kofi as the doc claps for him. The look on Kofi's face is priceless. Kane walks up the ramp and walks to the back with Dr. Shelby
Matt Striker interviews Randy Orton in the back. Orton is bored with Striker's questions about Tensai and Ziggler. He talks about Night of Champions and the possibility of Ziggler cashing in his briefcase thus giving Orton the opportunity to be champion that night. He ends by saying regardless, he just doesn't like Ziggler. We go to commercial.
Randy Orton vs. Tensai
They lock-up and Tensai gets in a kick off the break. Orton fights back but Tensai swats away a dropkick. Tensai misses with an elbow as Orton drops repeated knees to the head. Tensai hits a knife-hand strike to the throat and Orton falls straight back. Tensai takes over in the corner. The ref pulls him off and Orton gets a small offense going but Tensai resumes and knocks Orton down and out with a shoulderblock. Tensai goes out and throws Orton back in. Orton dropkicks him out of the ring as we go to commercial.
