For those keeping track at home, that's three of Daniel Bryan's partners tonight beaten down in very physical matches…
The Miz is out first, and is still doing his impression of stone. He tells Randy Orton that he will get justice, and it will be "awesome". He talks about Big Show knocking out WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes last week, and introduces the big man. Miz asks him how he could harm a guy that was like a father figure to him. He tells Show that Triple H and Stephanie are trying to break him, because he's the biggest, most respected guy in the locker room, and if they get to him, they can get to anybody. Miz tells him to step up, but Stephanie McMahon cuts him off. She tells Miz that they consider what he is saying slander – Miz tells her to shove her legal threats up her ass. Really. Steph calls him a Superstar who peaked too early, and is nothing more than a utility player who does radio shows and far-off appearances that nobody else wants to do. She tells Big Show to knock him out – he does. No crying this time, as Show leaves the ring immediately and walks to the back.
Jerry Lawler reveals the results of the fan vote from earlier, and RVD will be facing Randy Orton, to a massive pop from the crowd.
