SAN JOSE, Calif. – Dolph Ziggler may have triumphed over The Miz to win the Intercontinental Championship with his career on the line at No Mercy, but that doesn’t mean he can get The A-Lister out of his bleach blonde hair.
Miz and Maryse interrupted The Showoff as he attempted to savor his huge victory and proceeded to ridicule the new titleholder. In response, Ziggler produced a post-match No Mercy clip of Miz crying, which drove the former champion to once again bring out The Spirit Squad.
However, despite the numbers advantage for Kenny and Mikey in a subsequent 2-on-1 Handicap Match, Ziggler was able to overcome the squadron of spirit, defeating Kenny with a Superkick. When Miz and The Spirit Squad attacked Ziggler after the bell, SmackDown Tag Team Champions Heath Slater and Rhyno rushed down to even the score, inciting Miz and the squad to head for the hills.
