YouTube Exclusive Preshow Match
Miz comes out and says he is on the preshow of Extreme Rules, and asks if it’s really (REALLY?) happening? He says he single handedly won for Team Johnny at Wrestlemania, and this is the thanks he gets for his work? Miz asks if he should be jumping around and acting happy, because he isn’t higher on the card like CM Punk and Chris Jericho. He says it doesn’t matter where he is because he is must see and he will walk out of the building as the United States Champion. The fans start a ‘You Suck’ chant, but he says he doesn’t suck because he isn’t from Chicago. Miz says he can’t wait to win the title and get out of there because he hates Chicago, then he tries to say he’s awesome, but Santino makes his entrance in the middle of it.
Santino punches Miz in the face then pulls the ropes down when Miz runs at him, and Miz runs back in but Santino teases the Cobra. Miz runs away and gets back on the apron, then he punches Santino then knocks him down for a two count. He knees Santino in the head for another near fall then puts him in a headlock, but Santino counters with a hiptoss to break the hold. Miz stays close and drops him with a swinging DDT for two, then he punches him and hits a diving corner clothesline.
Miz connects with a top rope axe handle smash for two, then he punches Santino and goes for a big boot but Santino ducks it and rolls him up for two. Miz rolls outside and taunts the fans before hitting a knee lift, then he goes up top again but Santino punches him on the way down. Santino throws a few jabs and ducks a clothesline, then he hiptosses Miz and hits a diving headbutt. Santino calls for the Cobra but Miz kicks him into the corner, then he goes for a diving clothesline but Santino moves and hits the Cobra for the win.
