These two men have been feuding for awhile, with a lot of their build taking place on "WWE Main Event," where The Miz serves as the color commentator. The Miz recently underwent a face turn, and while he has been a lot less interesting as a good guy, the WWE took a step into building him by allowing "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair to pass the symbolic torch to him, as well as the use of the figure four leg lock as a finishing hold.
The Miz came into this match with an injured shoulder, thanks to Cesaro repeatedly swinging him into the ringside barricade over-and-over on "WWE Monday Night Raw" this week. The injury was so bad that The Miz was unable to even take part in Chris Jericho's return of the "Highlight Reel" on "WWE Main Event."
Cesaro really worked on The Miz's shoulder through the match, including big shoulder breakers, and overhead wristlocks. The Miz put up a strong fight, but every time he got the advantage, Cesaro went back to the shoulder. The end came with a fluke.
The Miz was trying for the figure four, but Cesaro swept out his leg. Miz fell and accidentally kneed Cesaro in the groin and the referee disqualified Miz for it. The Miz is angry, and when he realizes what happened, he turns and punts Cesaro right in the groin and leaves him lying.
Antonio Cesaro won by disqualification and remains the U.S. Champion.
