The Miz def. Sheamus
With their respective partners in their corners, The Miz and Sheamus squared off in the main event of SmackDown LIVE.
Sheamus took control in the early goings, as The Miz, who clearly wasn’t prepared to compete, tried to get acclimated in his suit pants and dress shoes. The Miz soon found his literal and figurative footing, surging back on Sheamus with a gritty attack that had The Celtic Warrior reeling. Cesaro attempted to get involved, but Shane-O-Mac would have none of it, chucking The Swiss Superman off the apron and into one of the birthday cakes that was positioned at ringside. This sudden distraction threw Sheamus off his game and allowed Miz to score a surprise rollup on Sheamus for the win.
After the match, Sheamus was irate, but The Miz quickly silenced him with a Skull-Crushing Finale. The two weren’t done though, as Miz then suggested that Shane-O-Mac go Coast-to-Coast on Sheamus … but with cake positioned in front of the SmackDown Tag Team Champion’s face … and, well, that’s exactly what happened.
Miz & Shane celebrated a successful night (and birthday), but will they still be all smiles after they clash with The Bar at Royal Rumble in less than two weeks?
