WWE Championship Triple Threat Steel Cage Match:
The Miz (c) vs. John Cena vs. John Morrison

Morrison came to the ring first, followed by Cena and then the WWE Champion.

Miz gained the early advantage. Miz took turns throwing Morrison and Cena head first into the cage.

Miz was the first to try to escape, but was met at the top of the cage by Cena, who nailed Miz with a bulldog from the top of the cage. Cena built on his momentum, and delivered a five knuckle shuffle on Morrison. Miz quickly hit Cena with the SCF, but Morrison quickly started scaling the cage and Miz ran over to stop Morrison from climbing over. Morrison and Miz battled on top of the cage and Morrison applied a headlock on Miz to prevent him from landing on the ring floor. Cena joined Morrison and they nailed Miz with a superplex from the top of the cage.

Morrison then tried to climb the cage, but Cena grabbed Morrison's leg on the top. Morrison landed a flying kick on Miz and a cool suplex/slam on Cena for a two count.

Morrison tried to escape again, but Miz caught him and powerbombed him into the side of the cage and then kicked him in the head. He charged at Cena, but was quickly put into an STF. Miz yelled for the door to be opened while he was in the hold. Miz almost managed to squirm his way to the floor, but was blocked by Cena, and then Cena tried to go to the floor, but was thwarted by Miz.

Back in the ring, Cena threw Morrison into the cage but Morrison jumped on the cage and started climbing over. Cena quickly caught him and the two fought on top. Underneath, Miz tried to escape through the door, but Morrison kicked the door on Miz's face. Morrison got crotched on the top of the door, and Miz pulled him into the ring.

Later in the match, Morrison hit Starship Pain from the top of the cage onto Cena and Miz and headed for the door. As he was trying to get out, R-Truth hit the ring and nailed him with a flying leg and got him back in the cage. Truth got in the cage with Morrison and put a beating on him. Truth hit a scissor kick on Cena for good measure and turned his attention back to Morrison and laid Morrison out. Truth then climbed over the top of the cage and hit the floor and headed to the back. WWE has something here with Truth as a heel, I hope they keep going through with it.

Miz came to and started to climb over the top, but was met by Cena before he could get to the floor. The two battled on top of the cage trading punches. Cena got the better of it and tried to climb out while Miz held onto a leg. Miz got him back in the cage and went for the SCF from the top rope but Cena blocked and hit the AA from the to rope! Cena then made the cover and got the 1-2-3! Another great match for one of the best WWE PPVs in awhile.

John Cena defeated The Miz (c) and John Morrison to win the WWE Championship.

Cena celebrated with the belt as the show went off of the air.
