Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler, which turned into a six-man match of Ziggler/RVD/Kingston vs. the Shield was a good match, with a number of close calls. It's amazing how Kofi Kingston has fantastic in-ring ability, but has a dead-end gimmick. It does not even have to be a heel turn, but Kofi Kingston needs more of an overhaul than long tights and highlighted locks.
The fact that Ziggler did not actually get to compete for the title signifies him getting his opportunity at Battleground, which should set up a very good match, again. The problem I have, though, is hopefully Battleground will not be a rehashed Night of Champions, and we are seeing that for the most part (minus CM Punk/Ryback, so far). Night of Champions was the worst pay-per-view of the year, and resembling anything close to it is not what's "best for business." The Rhodes Family angle is shaping up pretty good, so that may very well be the difference maker.

Randy Orton vs. Miz definitely was a success in making Orton more venomous, but it does not seem as if the Miz will get any benefit of getting beat down two weeks in a row. Receiving this kind of treatment leading to a PPV match would be one thing, but Orton will be facing Daniel Bryan at Battleground, so where does this leave the Miz? Does he go back to his heel ways after realizing that he can't beat Orton? Something has to happen, because the Miz's already tarnished babyface run is getting much worse.
I still have hope for Miz as a face, because—like I said before—he could be the face of SmackDown and feud with Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship. However, it doesn't appear that the WWE has any plans for him other than being Orton's personal whipping boy. Sad. Moreover, it has been quite odd that we have seen very little interaction between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton for the past couple of weeks. With Battleground rapidly approaching, that probably is not the best idea for the main event match.
How are the voices in your head after tonight's #SmackDown @Syfy @RandyOrton remains victorious! #Mizbiten— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) September 28, 2013
