Hello Bleachers, and welcome to another edition of My Friday Night Smackdown!
Before I begin, let's recap last week's events.
The Smackdown MITB field has been set. The participants are Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Justin Gabriel, Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, Kane and Sin Cara.
This week, the Miz received two notes. The first note 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 losing streak. I am beginning to lose hope for you, Miz."
There is an "O" on the back of the note.
After the Sin Cara vs. Tyson Kidd match, Miz comes down to the ring and issues an open challenge to prove the note wrong. He challenges any superstar in the back to come down to the ring and take him on.
Randy Orton answers The Miz's challenge and comes to the ring. Miz seemed to be expecting a lesser opponent as he wants nothing to do with Randy and runs out of the ring. Teddy Long interrupted Miz's "shortcut" tactics and made the match a no count-out match. Orton hits a RKO on Miz on the ramp, and Long makes the match a Falls Count Anywhere match. Orton pins Miz for the victory.
Miz gets up and stumbles to the back after losing for another week.
Miz then goes to his locker room where he finds 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."
What will happen on this edition of My Friday Night Smackdown?
