“Miz TV” with special guest Mick Foley

CLEVELAND — Two days before their World Title rematch at Survivor Series, The Celtic Warrior charged World Heavyweight Champion Big Show, pushing their bitter rivalry once again beyond the ring and into a state of all-out destruction. Meanwhile, SmackDown General Manager Booker T and Mick Foley placed the members of Sunday’s Traditional Elimination Tag Team Match into a series of bouts that quickly descended into a struggle for pay-per-view momentum.

In addition to basking in the glory of bringing his controversial talk show, “Miz TV,” to his hometown Cleveland, The Miz also celebrated the fact that Monday’s RAWactive poll chose him to fill the vacant spot on Team Foley in the Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match Sunday. After pledging he would not follow any team captain, however, the outspoken Superstar welcomed Mick Foley in the ring — the iconic Superstar fitting that very job description. (MATCH PREVIEW)

After The Hardcore Legend took the opportunity to plug his new book, “A Most Mizerable Christmas,” he posed the question: Which Miz was going to show up to Survivor Series? Would it be The Miz who accomplished so many milestones in his WWE career or would it be the somewhat laid-back, more talk/less action Miz?

When the “Miz TV” host pointed out that Mick should worry about the dysfunction of the other members of the Survivor Series group rather than him, Foley welcomed all of Team Foley into the ring.

When he “opened the lines of communication,” Team Hell No used the opportunity to further argue with each other. Then, when things almost turned volatile between archrivals Kofi Kingston and Miz, Foley called on Randy Orton to be the “voice of reason.” But the nine-time World Champion said that despite their volatile history, he liked Foley more than anyone of the team — a group he didn’t “like or trust at all.”

They were soon interrupted by the majority of Team Ziggler — minus Cody Rhodes, who sustained an injury on Wednesday’s WWE Main Event. While Dolph Ziggler proclaimed Foley’s team the “definition of dysfunction,” a verbal exchange with Alberto Del Rio showed some cracks in their armor as well.

As the two Survivor Series teams bickered back and forth, Foley revealed three main event matches he suggested and got approved by SmackDown General Manager Booker T: Kingston vs. Damien Sandow, Orton & The Miz vs. Del Rio & Ziggler and Kane vs. Wade Barrett.
