Somehow, Mizdow’s gimmick never gets old. That was no more apparent than when The Miz stumbled on the top rope, landing on his man-parts. Mizdow, being the great stunt double that he is, took one for the team and put his unborn children through the same misery.
Laughs, however, were not enough to take the title from the Usos.
For a moment, it looked like The Miz might stand a chance, landing a backbreaker-to-neckbreaker combo on Jimmy Uso. But as usual, it was his failure to tag in Mizdow, much to the chagrin of the 17,000-plus fans in attendance, that ultimately cost The Miz.
After a few near pins on Jey Uso, the crowd began a “We want Mizdow” chant, but he was never tagged in.
With both The Miz and Mizdow out of the ring, both Usos flew over the top rope and on to the apron - first Jimmy landing on Mizdow and then Jey catching The Miz with a Flying Uso that didn’t land cleaning - leaving all four fighters sprawled out on the floor. The Miz then landed his finishing move, The Skull Crushing Finale, but couldn’t finish the pin.
And still, the crowd chanted “Mizdow! Mizdow!”
After The Miz took a heel to the face and was about to be pinned, Mizdow came to the rescue, not only breaking up the fighters, but tossing one Uso into the turnbuckle and laying the other out with a Skull Crushing Finale of his own. All Miz, still the legal fighter, had to do was crawl over and finish the pin.
But the Usos were not done yet, and after Jey was able to catch The Miz off the top rope for a power-bomb, Jimmy finished the job with a flying splash off the top rope.
All-in-all it was a good match, I just wish there was more Mizdow. Sure, The Miz is playing his role as the heel by not tagging his stunt double in, but if you’re not going to use him, what’s the point? It was nice, however, to see Mizdow -- against the orders of The Miz -- make it into The Rumble … even if it was only for a second before being tossed out by Rusev.
