WWE: My Friday Night Smackdown 7/8
Hello Bleachers, and welcome to My Friday Night Smackdown!
Before I begin, let's recap last week's show.
Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Justin Gabriel and Wade Barrett qualified for the MITB.
Beth Phoenix defeated Tamina to continue her winning ways.
After The Miz lost his MITB qualifying match he found another note. The note reads:
"Miz I thought you were supposed to be the 'dirty' wrestler. Regal and Barrett just out did you at your own game. You will never get another World Title if you don't get serious about winning."
On the back of the note was the letter "E."
Who will qualify for the MITB tonight? Will the mysterious note writer be revealed? Let's find out.
Money in the Bank Qualifying Match
We open the show with our first match.
It is announced that this is a tag team match. The winning team's members both qualify for the MITB.
The Uso's make their way to the ring to a nice reaction.
Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase make their entrance to good heat.
DiBiase and Jey Uso will start off the match.
Jey starts off by putting ted in a headlock. DiBiase throws him off and hits a shoulder block. DiBiase follows it up with a submission hold but Jey fights out of it. Jey hits a hip toss and then a clothesline before going for the pin. Jey gets a quick two count.

Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes have qualified for the MITB.
Rhodes yells at Ted some more before leaving ring side, and we go to a commercial break.
The Miz is backstage flirting with Rosa Mendes. Miz tells her how awesome he is and says all his typical "Miz" things. Rosa asks him if he is so "awesome," then why did Alex Riley qualify for the MITB but he didn't? Miz gets angry and Rosa leaves.
Miz is standing there getting angry when Matt Striker brings him yet another note. Miz looks like he is going to slap Striker but decides to just read the note instead. It reads:
"Miz if you would worry about winning matches more than you worry about your ego you might actually become a Hall of Famer one day. Your former student Alex Riley is moving on with his career and you are stuck in a loosing street. I am begining to lose hope for you Miz".
On the back of the note is the letter "O".
Miz crumbles up the letter and gets even more angry. Miz tells Striker that he will show everyone here that he is the greatest WWE Champion in history.

Mark Henry's music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Booker T and Josh Matthews talk about how big of an impact Mark Henry could have on the MITB.

Sin Cara has qualified for the MITB.
The Miz storms down to the ring and throws Sin Cara out of it. Miz grabs a mic and says that he is sick and tired of people telling him what to do and how to do it. Furthermore, he is sick and tired of people talking about Alex Riley this and A-ry that. Miz says that he is going to find out who is writing these stupid notes and putting random letters on the back.
Next, Miz says that he is issuing an open challenge to anyone in the back that wants to fight. He suggests that maybe Yoshi Tatsu, Trent Barreta or Hornswoggle want to come out and fight.
The open challenge draws out this man...
Main Event: Randy Orton vs. Miz
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring with a great reaction. He tells Miz that if he wants a fight, then he can have one.
The match begins with Randy charging Miz, but he runs out of the ring. Orton follows him and throws Miz into the steel steps. Miz tries to throw Randy into the barricade but Orton counters and throws Miz back in the ring. Miz starts stomping on Orton when they get back in the ring.

Long says that the Miz wanted a fight and now he got one. Teddy makes this match a no count-out match and Miz is forced to fight. Miz then yells at Teddy, but by this time Orton is behind Miz.
Miz turns around and hits an RKO. Long then says that now this match is a Falls Count Anywhere match. Orton smiles and pins Miz on the ramp for the victory.
Orton celebrates and Miz stumbles to his feet looking embarrassed and angry.
For the third week in a row, Miz is wandering backstage, angry about another loss. Miz walks into his locker room and there on a chair is yet another note. This time it reads:
"So you ask for a fight and then you chicken out of it? What happened to the kid that used to have no quit attitude and would take on all challengers. Since you lost your WWE Championship you have been reduced to your old talk show host days status. Talk shows are nice kid but you better back your mouth up in the ring."
On the back of the note is the letter "S."
Miz crumbles it up before letting out a scream that fades us into a black screen as we close the show.
That concludes My Friday Night SmackDown.
