Here’s SmackDown! in case you missed it:
From The Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio:
Hosted by Josh Matthews and John “Bradshaw” Layfield (JBL).
This week opens with…………
MIZ TV with The Miz
HIS GUEST: “The Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley.
Mick Foley was there to promote his new book entitled, A Most Mizerable Christmas, and he wondered which Miz would be at Survivor Series, one who accomplished a lot in WWE, or the one who talks a lot. Miz felt that Foley needed to be concerned about the attitudes of his Survivor Series team, and Foley asked Team Foley to come to the ring. Team Foley stood on the Titantron instead. Foley asked all of them to talk, but it was more of a chance for the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No (Kane and Daniel Bryan) to continue their nonstop arguing. There was still bad blood between The Miz and Kofi Kingston since Miz lost the Intercontinental Championship to Kingston. In the wake of the hostility, Foley demanded that Randy Orton act as the voice of reason, and Orton stated that he liked him better than anyone in the group. They were soon interrupted by Team Ziggler, without Cody Rhodes who suffered an injury during his match against Kane this past Wednesday on WWE Main Event. Team Captain Dolph Ziggler labeled Team Foley “the definition of destruction”, unitl he noticed Alberto del Rio having a conversation with Ricardo Rodriguez, and couldn’t get him to shut up.
