The Miz and Damien Mizdow defeated Los Matadores
Smackdown Reaction kicks off with Miz getting some offense in with a clothesline and a neckbreaker. Mizdow gets into the ring and then gets taken down with a toss into the corner. Miz gets back into the ring and Diego hits a moonsault. Alas, The Miz locks in a Figure Four while Mizdow does on the outside for the win.
What does this do for The Miz vs. Sheamus at Hell in a Cell? I would have much rather seen Sheamus in action and then Miz stealing another win. This would have been much better in terms of building a small feud and a potential title change.
Why do we think Miz will win Sunday? I sure do not think so, even though he seems to get a bigger crowd reaction than Sheamus on a weekly basis.
AJ Lee defeated Alicia Fox
Lee gets an armlock in early and the Fox hits a big kick. Lee hits a hurricanranna and then Fox connects with another kick. Lee locks in a headlock submission and tries to get Fox to tap out. Northern Lights Suplex gives Fox a two count and then AJ fights back. Lee steals a win and skips away.
The best part was seeing Paige get involved vocally on the outside. Paige seems to let loose more often on the outside and makes her character seem crazier as the time goes by. I really like the progression of Paige, but fear the feud has gotten as stale as a week old loaf of bread.
