The Miz hit the scene on SmackDown LIVE and let the WWE Universe know that he was ready to fight for retribution this Sunday against Shane McMahon in their Falls Count Anywhere Match … but, as for tonight, The Miz would have to fight for survival, as Shane set Miz up in a 1-on-3 Handicap Match against SAnitY. Before the match could begin, Shane arrived, asked for his typical “Best in the World” introduction and then stationed himself on the rampway so he could have an up-close view of this one.
With Shane clearly hoping that SAnitY would wear down The Miz prior to The Show of Shows, Miz fought valiantly despite the massive numbers disadvantage. The Miz was potentially closing in on victory, but Shane changed course, making this match a Falls Count Anywhere, just like their scrap on Sunday. Adding fuel to the fire, Shane showed the picture of him assaulting Miz’s father on the Tron, but it’s possible that tactic backfired, as Miz began to unload on all three members of SAnitY throughout the arena.
In the clutch, Miz isolated Eric Young in the parking lot, annihilating the SAnitY leader with an equipment cart for an astonishing victory. Shane McMahon threw everything he had at The Miz prior to WrestleMania, and The Miz proved he was more than ready.
