Pre-Show PPV Results
The HIAC pre-show started with Josh Mathews introducing the show from the All-Star Panel location. WWE cut to a shot of fans filing into the building before showing an empty portion of the audience that lead to the All-Star Panel.
At the panel this month, it's Dolph Ziggler, R-Truth, and Kaitlyn. Mathews asked "former World champion" Ziggler about what intrigues him the most tonight. Ziggler said it's Alberto Del Rio vs. John Cena, who may have returned from injury too soon, and whether Damien Sandow cashes in MITB tonight. Truth said he wants to find out who the Face of WWE is between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton. Kaitlyn said Bryan and Brie Bella could be a new Power Couple in WWE if they both win title gold tonight - the same deal from Battleground three weeks ago.
At the Social Media Lounge, Renee Young plugged this month's poll to crown Mr. HIAC - Taker, Michaels, Hunter, Orton, or Foley.
Backstage: The Miz approached Vickie Guerrero. Miz said he wants Bray Wyatt in a match tonight. "Vickie, make it happen," he said. Vickie replied that Miz is not medically cleared for a match, so no dice. Miz replied that if he's not cleared for a match, he'll make it a fight. Miz walked off, leaving Vickie to try to sort this out.
All-Star Panel: Big E. Langston was at the All-Star panel standing next to the man he turned on, Dolph Ziggler. But, it's "ancient history" in WWE, so Ziggler and Langston played nice discussing the PPV card. Mathews then brought The Shield into the discussion.
From a dark location in the bowels of Miami, Shield checked in with a complaint about not getting a straight-up Tag Title re-match against the Rhodes Bros. Also, Big Show cost them the Tag Titles in the first place. Suddenly, Langston checked in from the All-Star Panel taking a jab at The Shield. Langston came around to challenging Dean Ambrose for the U.S. Title, which Ambrose said is a joke. Langston's third try got Ambrose to back down and suggest there will be a match. After Shield signed off, Ziggler talked up his former protege, Langston. Overall, that was a highly-awkward exchange.
Video Package: John Cena.
Ringside: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and JBL were shown ringside to introduce the pre-show match. Audio was off on Lilian Garcia introducing Damien Sandow, then audio was off on Sandow's walk-to-the-ring promo. Sandow did the same deal from Battleground teasing a potential MITB cash-in on either Alberto Del Rio or John Cena on the main PPV. Kofi Kingston then came out to face Sandow.
A -- DAMIEN SANDOW vs. KOFI KINGSTON
The match allowed the announcers to discuss John Cena's return. The announcers "stacked the deck" against Cena by suggesting he may be returning from injury too soon. Cole then confirmed U.S. champion Dean Ambrose vs. Big E. Langston for the U.S. Title on the main PPV. Meanwhile, Kofi knocked Sandow to the outside and delivered a flying kick to the face for a nearfall. Back in the ring, referee Mike Chioda was heard giving them a very audible time cue. Sandow regained control leading to a mid-match break.
Back from break, Sandow bodyslammed Kofi before delivering the Elbow of Disdain for a two count. As Sandow continued to wear down Kofi, the announcers talked about the WWE video game, setting up Cole to attempt a joke on JBL that he seemed to be saving up the entire day. Lawler name-dropped Ultimate Warrior, talking about what sounded like a dream he had where Undertaker choke-slammed Warrior through their announce table. Cole then shouted out to Rey Mysterio sitting ringside on Spanish commentary.
At 6:00, Kingston made a comeback with a springboard cross-body splash. WWE then cut to a shot of Rey Mysterio sitting ringside breaking down the ongoing match. JBL heelishly translated that Rey admitted to being El Torito. Kofi's comeback was not enough, as Sandow came back with his "You're Welcome" finisher for the pin and the win. Just like Battleground, the announcers teased Sandow potentially cashing in MITB on the main PPV.
WINNER: Sandow at 7:01. Basic warm-up match to allow the announcers to hype Cena's return, tease a MITB cash-in on the PPV, and promote the video game out Tuesday.
Social Media Lounge: Renee Young read some tweets. Then, revealed the Mr. HIAC Poll Result of 81 percent for Taker.
All-Star Panel: Josh Mathews hyped two matches occurring inside the HIAC structure tonight - Shawn Michaels refereeing a title match between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton and C.M. Punk vs. Team Heyman. R-Truth flashed back to a few years ago saying there is a CON-spiracy here. Mathews lost control of himself as Truth continued to promote his Conspiracy that The Authority does not want Daniel Bryan as WWE champion. Mathews said they have been promised a new WWE champion tonight before signing off for the pre-show.
