The Miz def. Cody Rhodes

Only days away from his Triple Threat Match for the Intercontinental Title against Curtis Axel and defending champion Wade Barrett, The Miz stepped out from behind the announce table to lock up with fellow former Intercontinental Champ Cody Rhodes on WWE Main Event. Taking The Awesome One’s place on commentary for the evening was none other than his nemesis, Barrett.

With The Bare-Knuckle Brawler observing the action, The Miz was certainly out to make a statement and prove to that he was ready to take on The Barrett Barrage. Wrestling aficionados could also revel in the connection between The Awesome One and Rhodes. The mustachioed Superstar is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, while The Miz has tapped into the teachings of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair – “The American Dream’s” greatest nemesis.

Nevertheless, the mindset of both competitors was firmly set in the present with Rhodes ready to prove he deserves an Intercontinental Title opportunity as well, at the same time hoping to derail any momentum The Miz looked to build.

The contest was evenly matched – both The Miz and Rhodes proving their clout as former Intercontinental Titleholders. From the announce position, Barrett kept a close eye on the action, looking for any weakness displayed by The Awesome One. Using the steel ring post to his advantage, Rhodes targeted The Miz’s arm – perhaps giving The Barrett Barrage something to work with this Sunday at WWE Payback.

However, the resilience of The Most Must-See WWE Superstar was also on display, giving Barrett the full spectrum of what he will be up against at WWE Payback. Following a series of near-falls from each Superstar, The Miz managed to seize an opportunity to lock in the Figure Four and secure the victory.
