- Miz TV with Special Guest Dolph Ziggler: Miz says that this is a special Miz TV because this will be the last time we see Dolph Ziggler. Miz plays a highlight video of Ziggler called “WWE 24, The Success of a Failure". Ziggler finally interrupts, calls Miz an ass face and says that every ten bad moments he's had there would be one moment a fan would encourage him to continue. Reasons like Make A Wish and winning the World Heavyweight Championship are reasons why he couldn't walk away. Ziggler says he's winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship and Miz isn't taking his career. Miz disagrees and guarantees he's taking Ziggler's career, but he has something to cheer up Ziggler.
Miz introduces Mike Mondo and Kenny Dykstra from Dolph Ziggler's old Spirit Squad faction. Mondo and Dykstra do a cheer calling Ziggler a loser.

He had the opportunity to defeat Ambrose and win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and he did. Ambrose interrupts and calls Styles the clown that runs the town. Ambrose respects Styles for what he's done in other promotions, but what he did to win the World Title was low. Before Cena can speak, Styles tells him to shut up and never compare himself to Ric Flair and chasing Flair's world title record ever again. Before Cena can speak again, Ambrose tells him to shut up. Ambrose says Cena is going to claim to have been screwed over, enjoys holding others down and has had less matches this year than Ambrose. Ambrose insults Cena some more until Cena finally tackles and ground and pounds Ambrose. Cena plants Styles with an AA, but Styles catches Cena celebrating and attacks from behind. Styles hits an enziguri and then the Phenomenal Forearm on Cena. Ambrose attacks Styles from behind and lays him out with Dirty Deeds to end the show.
