MizTV with Ryback kicks off the show. Rybacks told Miz that he was a big fan of the show. They talked about last week's match with Antonio Cesaro, which prompted Cesaro to come out insulting Miz and Ryback. This led to our first match, Cesaro vs. Ryback.
* Ryback defeated Antonio Cesaro by count out. At one point Ryback had Cesaro up for a standing suplex for about 10 seconds, which was impressive. Ryback pretty much dominated the whole match with the exception of Cesaro knocking him out the ring for about 9 seconds. This led Cesaro to control the match for a few minutes before Ryback regained control.
