Tommaso Ciampa def. The Miz
Not only did The Miz find himself with surprise company on “Miz TV,” he also found himself on the short end of an impromptu matchup with The Blackheart of NXT.
“Miz TV” was originally set to play host to new Universal Champion "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt, but with Wyatt being one of many Superstars unable to make it to SmackDown after mechanical issues kept them grounded following WWE Crown Jewel, The Miz was without a guest — but not for long. The A-List Superstar soon shared the ring with Tommaso Ciampa, who returned to NXT last month after recovering from a devastating neck injury.
And just as he proved more than capable of going toe-to-toe with The Miz in a war of words, the self-proclaimed Greatest Sports Entertainer of All Time was also ready for The Awesome One inside the ring.
The two engaged in a back-and-forth duel before Ciampa caught The Miz off the top rope with a blistering knee to the face. That opened the window for Ciampa to hit the Fairytale Ending and score a victory on behalf of NXT.
