Edge defeated The Miz with a big spear after a distraction from Beth Pheonix, WWE Hall of Famer and wife of Edge.
How much you like this match depends entirely on how much you care for Miz. The announcers tried to sell it like a clash between two Hall of Famers, with the idea being that Edge already is in the Hall of Fame and that Miz is sure to join him there soon. But for much of the audience, myself included, The Miz is no longer a truly credible challenger to main event stars like Edge.
The match was well structured, and quite good. It's not like The Miz sucked here, just that it felt like an A-level star against a B-level one.
The Miz came to the ring accompanied by his wife Maryse, while Edge did his awesome Brood entrance, which we last saw during his feud with Seth Rollins. The story of the match at first was that Edge kept trying to put Miz into his crossface, but Miz kept wriggling out.
There were some fun spots. Standing outside, Edge caught Miz on the apron and hit a nice DDT onto the outside. Later, Miz rolled up Edge and put his feet on the ropes, nearly getting the 3 count but losing it thanks to the ref's noticing the feet at the last second. Miz put Edge in the Figure Four, which led the two into a mid-Figure Four slap fest.
There was also a great nearfall where Miz pretended his knee was injured, which got the ref's attention. Maryse slapped Edge, who then walked straight into a Skull Crushing Finale for a two.
Maryse and Miz started to gloat, but then Miz got a scared look on his face and told Maryse to turn around. The camera then fixed on Beth Pheonix, Edge's wife, who was standing on the ramp, staring at The Miz while seething. She stood there for an awkward amount of time before her music hit -- obviously she was waiting for the musical cue, but it came a touch too slow. She then chased Maryse around the ring, which distracted The Miz long enough for Edge to hit a spear for the 3 count.
Rating: 3.5 stars.
