This is a great debut. I could go with this guy teasing the audience for weeks. I don’t care how old school his gimmick is. Give him a perfume bottle to spray in people’s faces for all I care. He’s going to conquer the squared circle, the same way he conquered the world of dance.
Wrestlemania is but a few short weeks away – we’ve confirmed four matches thus far.
- The Rock (c) vs. John Cena for WWE Championship
- Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Jack Swagger for the World Heavyweight Championship
- The Undertaker vs. CM Punk
- The Shield vs. Sheamus, Randy Orton, & Ryback
There is still a lot to be decided! On tonight’s show:
- Triple H will confront Brock Lesnar and their Wrestlemania match will be confirmed
- There will be a Triple Threat Match for the IC title with Wade Barret (c), Chris Jericho, and the Miz.
- And you know, the rest of the undercard will probably do something.
I’m hoping for some huge swerves and proverbial wrenches to be thrown in the dastardly of plans!

WWE.com has announced that this Sunday’s Royal Rumble pre-show will feature Antonio Cesaro defending his U.S. Title against The Miz.
The feud between these two started on the 20th Anniversary of Raw last week. The Awesome One was hosting Ric Flair during his MizTV segment, when the two were interrupted by the Champ. Cesaro did his “typical American” bit, before being dispatched by the Miz and the Nature Boy.
Days later, on Main Event, the Miz became the latest victim of the Neutralizer as he attempted to save Randy Orton from an assault by Cesaro and the Shield.
Both men are coming off losses from last night’s “Beat The Clock” series, but Cesaro was on a roll prior. One might expect a Very European Uppercut and Neutralizer to be in the Miz’s future, as the U.S. Champion resumes his ascension up the ranks. However, while the Miz has arguably been floundering since even before his face turn, let’s not forget that Naitch may have just passed the torch on the Figure Four. That has to count for something.
Let us know how you see this playing out; tweet us @DukesWrestling or tell us in the comments section below. Also, be sure to arrive early for the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show Royal Rumble Viewing Party on Sunday! You’re going, so be sure to RSVP on Facebook.
Tonight from Rochester, NY: the final televised SmackDown of the year!
After what went down on last week’s Miz TV, the new power…trio(?) of Dolph Ziggler, AJ Lee, and Big E. Langston have drawn the ire of the Awesome One. Tonight on SmackDown, The Miz will face Ziggler in singles action in retaliation for Ziggler and Langston’s dastardly attack to end Miz TV last Tuesday. AJ will be in short shorts and Chucks. It’s obviously a must-see.

While we’ve all been focusing on CM Punk’s impressive 365 day+ streak as WWE Champion, another run has just gotten underway. Yes, the Miz is entering his second week as a babyface.
So, how is the former reality star doing so far? He had a match last night against perhaps WWE’s most generic heel, David Otunga. Miz won the match and seems to be on his way to attempting to establish himself as a major face of the company.
