World Heavyweight Champion Edge def. WWE Champion The Miz in a Non-Title Match
During the Royal Rumble, WWE Champion The Miz eliminated John Cena. Well, WWE’s 2010 Superstar of the Year wasn’t about to let “The Cleveland Screamer” go free. Instead, as Miz appeared to gain the upper hand during his match with World Heavyweight Champion Edge, Cena addressed him from a skybox within the Dunkin Donuts Center. The impromptu shout-out rattled the so-called “Awesome One” enough to allow The Ultimate Opportunist to level his opponent with a Spear to capture the win. John Cena Help Edge win.
The first man over the top rope was actually the leader of The New Nexus, quickly followed by The Viper. Third over the rope was the man who eliminated Orton, R-Truth. After a series of incredible athletic saves, The Prince of Parkour finally fell as well. Next to go, Cena got toppled over the top. And finally, Sheamus flipped over and out when he missed the Raw announcer with a Brogue Kick.
Lawler’s surprising success comes just three weeks before the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. As a result of the Raw announcer’s win, he will once again enter a title bout to face WWE Champion The Miz, who he nearly defeated in a TLC Match last month. As for his six fellow competitors, they too will compete at the pay-per-view. The sextet of Superstars, however, will be forced to square off inside Satan’s Structure with the winner earning the opportunity to challenge the WWE Champion at Wrestlemania.
