The Miz def. U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro

Unfortunately for The Miz, the former WWE Champion’s rematch against U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro did not include a stipulation that put The Swiss Superman’s beloved title up for grabs. It did, however, feature a nice, fat trade-off for the bitter rivals: a No Disqualification clause.

Given that Miz was disqualified for a potentially exaggerated, likely fabricated and entirely accidental knee to Cesaro’s groin at Elimination Chamber, the gist of the new stipulation? Well, not to put too fine a point on it but kick ’em anywhere you want, Miz.

And that he did, although he absorbed a fairly shocking amount of punishment from Cesaro before he got there. The Swiss Superman administered numerous chair strikes as well as a Kendo stick beating to The Awesome One’s gimpy shoulder before Miz got his feet back under him and returned the favor. Miz seemed all but done when he hurled Cesaro into two steel chairs, pouncing on the prone champion with the Figure-Four Leglock to get his long-awaited, hard-earned win over the United States Champion. Ain’t that a kick in the — well, you know.
