IN THE RING
Mike Mizanin & John Morrison + Theodore Long + Ricky Ortiz: Before the match, The Miz protested his loss to Evan Bourne last week, saying the only reason he (Bourne) won was because his BFF Ricky Ortiz interfered – and then showed video evidence. Morrison insulted Theodore Long’s “talant initiative” and said he has no taste in talant. General Manager Long came out to defend himself and said if Miz & Morrison had a problem with the competition to leave. Miz & Morrison challenged Bourne & Ortiz to a match tonight, but Long said Bourne wasn’t there (because he got beat up by Kane on RAW). Ricky Ortiz came out and Theodore Long set up a match between Miz and Morrison with the winner facing Ortiz immediately following the match!
Theodore Long & Tiffany & Ricky Ortiz: Theodore Long motivated Ricky Ortiz for his match tonight while Tiffany acted like a complete slut.
Fit Finlay w/Hornswoggle defeated Bam Neely: After the match, a couple of kids were invited into the ring to dance around with Finlay & Hornswoggle.
NON (SMACKDOWN! DIVAS) TITLE MATCH
Maryse Ouellet defeated SmackDown! Divas champion Michelle McCool:
Mark Henry & Tony Atlas: Mark Henry cut a promo about what he was going to do to Matt Hardy at No Mercy. Not pretty.
Mike Knox defeated Chase Stevens: After the match, Jack Swagger came down and gave a beaten Chase Stevens a massive Power-bomb! Tommy Dreamer ran down to save the young jobber, but Mike Knox distracted him long enough for Swagger to assault Dreamer from behind!
WINNER FACES RICKY ORTIZ MATCH
John Morrison vs. Miz “The Miz” Mizanin ended in a Double Count-down: Neither man could answer the 10-count so the referee ruled the match a No Contest. Ricky Ortiz ran down and took the fight to both Miz & Morrison before leaving the ring to celebrate!
