Daniel Bryan interrupts "Miz TV" to make special announcements for SmackDown.

Newly crowned WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & Damien Mizdow kicked off SmackDown with “Miz TV.” After expounding on how “he” won the titles at Survivor Series, The Awesome One introduced another Superstar who made a huge impact that night by knocking out John Cena and turning traitor to Team Cena, Big Show.

Encouraged by Miz, the giant explained that he never should have joined Team Cena and expressed his outrage over Superstars like Erick Rowen judging him. Before he could continue, though, Daniel Bryan emerged and declared the show to be “Daniel Bryan’s SmackDown” — as he was running things for the evening!

The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion set up a series of matches. They included Ryback vs. Seth Rollins, an Intercontinental Title Match between Luke Harper and former titleholder Dolph Ziggler and — because Rusev failed to say the Pledge of Allegiance on Raw — a 20-Man Battle Royal for the United States Title.

After Jack Swagger eliminated Tyson Kidd in the closing moments of the SmackDown Battle Royal for the U.S. Title, the remaining three competitors were The Real American, Cesaro and Rusev. While it looked like the Swiss Superman would dispose of the Russian titleholder, Rusev was able to keep one foot off the ground and reenter the action. Then, seconds after Swagger eliminated Cesaro, Rusev reengaged and kicked him out of the ring for the victory.
