Pre-Show PPV Results
The PPV opened with live shots of the arena before Josh Mathews welcomed in Bret Hart, Booker T, and Mick Foley for the pre-show panel. The trio discussed the main PPV, The Miz's recent heel turn, and Foley talked about himself.
Off to Renee Young at the Social Media Lounge to discuss "Dream Teams." Renee offered her team of Daniel Bryan, C.M. Punk, William Regal, Trish Stratus, and the Gobbledygooker. Back at the panel, Foley took Booker's line of "tell me she didn't just say Gobbledygooker."
Video Review: John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio build-up to their World Title match tonight.
Backstage: The Usos were shown painting their faces, then Goldust walked in to discuss war paint. Cody Rhodes noted he didn't get any, then Rey Mysterio walked into the shot to make sure all five of them are ready. Rey then talked up the Rhodes Bros.'s and The Usos's fathers (Dusty Rhodes and Rikishi, respectively). Rey said it's time to shine.
Back to Mathews, who said the five-on-five Survivor Series match will open the PPV.
Backstage: Renee Young was suddenly backstage to interview C.M. Punk and Daniel Bryan. Apparently the Social Media Lounge and Backstage Interview Sets are very close to each other. Renee asked them for thoughts on facing Erick Rowan and Luke Harper tonight. Bryan said they are violent without reason and they can match that. Bryan called them one of their biggest challenges in WWE, which is no different than what they've experienced since debuting in WWE. Punk said they aren't afraid of the Wyatts's tricks and mindgames, and they don't know what they're in store for facing The Best and The Beard. Punk looked into the camera and noted they are ready.
Back to the panel, Foley talked about watching Bryan and Punk wrestle in front of hundreds a decade ago. Now, they're wrestling in front of thousands. Booker noted they're about to step into some deep stuff tonight, though.
Announcers: Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry Lawler made their presence known ringside, then Kofi Kingston's music played to bring out Kofi wrestling in his hometown area for the kick-off match. The Miz's music played next and he strutted down to the ring in cocky heel mode.
A -- KOFI KINGSTON vs. THE MIZ
Once the bell sounded, Miz extended his hand for a pre-match handshake. Kofi thought it over, then reluctantly shook hands with Miz. The duo started with some friendly back-and-forth action, leading to a series of rapid-fire pin attempts that resulted in a stalemate. Both men smiled, then locked up again. Finisher teases, then Kofi delivered a spinning heel kick to the face before clotheslining Miz to the floor. Kofi followed with a suicide dive on the outside to send the match to a "break."
Back from break, Kofi was still in control, now in the ring. But, Miz blasted Kofi with a kick to the head that decked Kofi in the corner. Miz covered, but Kofi escaped a pin attempt. As Miz settled into a reverse chinlock, Cole plugged Miz's Christmas movie premiering this week on ABC Family. Kofi then made a comeback, which allowed him to nail the SOS for a two count.
Kofi wanted a corner attack at 7:30, but Miz lifted him into the air and dropped him knee-first in the corner. This allowed Miz to set up for the figure-four leglock, but Kofi escaped. Kofi nailed a top-rope cross-body splash, but Miz kicked out again. More pinfall reversals, and Miz ultimately won with a three count without hooking the tights.
Post-match: Kofi sat stunned in the ring as Miz celebrated the win. Miz and Kofi remained in the ring, then Miz's music stopped. Miz offered a handshake, but Kofi slapped him across the face. Miz, stunned, sold confusion over Kofi's gesture as Cole said Miz had that coming to him for bailing on Kofi on Raw last Monday.
WINNER: Miz at 8:35. So, no official heel turn from Miz, who won clean without shenanigans after setting out to have a straight-up match. Now the question is whether a frustrated Kofi will turn heel.
Back to the Hall of Fame panel, Mathews asked Foley, Booker, and Hart from left to right for final thoughts on Survivor Series.
