The Miz def. Rey Mysterio (WWE World Cup Semifinal Match)

The Miz def. Rey Mysterio (WWE World Cup Semifinal Match)

Notching one of the biggest wins in his storied career, The Miz bested Rey Mysterio in the WWE World Cup Semifinals, though The Awesome One’s victory was owed in no small part to Randy Orton’s venomous actions earlier in the night.

Mysterio entered the Semifinals battered and bruised following The Viper’s attack after their First-Round showdown. The legendary luchador fought valiantly despite the headwinds, but his weakened condition was obvious to everyone, including Miz, who ruthlessly targeted Mysterio’s ribcage in the hope of exacerbating his injuries.

Showing the fighting spirit that made him The Ultimate Underdog in the first place, Mysterio mounted a thrilling comeback, even coming back from a Skull-Crushing Finale to nail The Miz with the 619.  When Mysterio took flight with a top-rope Frog Splash seconds later, however, The Awesome One got his knees up, causing a painful landing for the masked Superstar. Miz then immediately cradled the reeling Mysterio for the three-count, dealing The King of Mystery his first loss since returning to WWE.

The Miz now moves on to the World Cup Finals. And as if the stakes of winning the World Cup weren’t high enough already, The Awesome One’s job will also be on the line, given SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon’s revelation earlier this week that if a SmackDown Superstar loses in the Finals, he’ll be fired from the blue brand.
