5The Miz Defeated Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston battled The Miz in a rematch tonight. Big E and John Morrison joined commentary for the match.
Match Recap: Kofi dominated early and the crowd was heavily behind him. The action spilled out of the ring and Miz shoved Kofi on top of Big E by the commentary table. Big E and Morrison then left commentary and were ringside for the remainder of the match. Morrison took out Big E and Miz capitalized on the distraction with the Skull Crushing Finale for the pinfall victory.
Opinion: Morrison & The Miz versus New Day should be an excellent feud for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. It is great to see Morrison back in WWE and it also refreshing that The Miz is a heel once again. He is much more entertaining in that role.
