HOUSTON — The Miz boldly proclaimed during the WWE TLC Kickoff that Kofi Kingston had no “killer instinct.” He quickly found out how wrong he was during WWE TLC. In an action-packed No Disqualification Match, The Wildcat finally got to shut The Awesome One up, defeating his mouthy foe.

Emotions have been running high between the two as of late, with The Miz picking up several victories over Kingston, as well as slapping the high-flyer in the face. Things came to a boiling point during the Kickoff, where Miz continuously made digs at Kingston while the Kickoff Panel analyzed the epic pay-per-view. Fed up with The Awesome One’s derision, Kingston confronted The Miz, delivering a slap of his own his before Hall of Famers Mick Foley and Booker T separated them.

Kingston pounced into action at the opening bell, taking The Miz down and unleashing a flurry of blows. Kofi tried to take flight, but The Awesome One quickly grounded him with a forearm to the jaw. The bout remained on the outside as Kingston regained control, laying in boots to The Miz’s midsection, but when he tried to land Trouble in Paradise, he connected with the steel ring post instead of his opponent’s head.

The recovering Miz focused his ruthless attack on the weakened leg of Kingston while assaulting Kofi around ringside. Though he seemed to have Kingston on the ropes, The Awesome One wanted to  punish his foe, removing the pad to expose the cold steel turnbuckle.

That move became The Miz’s undoing. The Dreadlocked Dynamo mustered up the might to send Miz crashing head-first into the exposed turnbuckle. The Awesome One stumbled backwards, turning around only to get caught with Trouble in Paradise, giving Kingston the victory.

If anyone questioned Kofi Kingston’s intensity before WWE TLC, The Wildcat gave them – and especially The Miz – no reason to continue doing so.
