The Miz is back in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio and is in the mood for a championship celebration as SmackDown Live's 'it' couple make their way down to the ring. We see a great package of the Miz, documenting his evolution in the WWE. Sometimes its easy to forget just how long Miz has been in the WWE.
Miz tells Cleveland that he's home. Miz says that when the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA, fans lined the streets but this was the celebration he gets? He says that the city should celebrate him instead of a traitor like Lebron James.
Miz introduces his parents who are in the front row today before introducing Dolph Ziggler's parents, who are also in the front row. He congratulates Dolph's parents for creating a world class loser.
Ziggler's music hits and he comes out and says that Miz has no right to talk to his parents or to his city. Miz explains that the record books show him as a champion while they show Ziggler as a almost-been. He tells Ziggler that he just loses and loses. Miz adds that Dolph is done and he won't get a rematch before walking away.
Dolph calls Miz back as he walks away. He says that being in the ring is all he has left. Even though his career didn't turn out the way he'd pictured it, what he loves didn't love himself back as much.
Ziggler wants one last rematch and says he's willing to put up his entire career on the line.
Miz confirms it. At No Mercy, it will be title vs career.
Huge rematch from last week as the ladies of SmackDown Live go at it again.
Carmella starts the match off by a moonwalk and then goes to attack Naomi who does and spanks her much to her anger and chagrin. Noami then moonwalks herself to mock Carmella who loses it and runs to attack Naomi again who catches her in her signature head scissors in the turnbuckle. We head into the commercial as Carmella rolls out to regroup with Natalya.
We come back from commercial with Naomi nursing a leg injury. Natalya hits her with a Michinoku Driver on the floor outside the ring before rolling her back in. Naomi looks like she's struggling as Carmella and Natalya isolate her and work on her.

Nikki comes in with fire and takes it to Natalya, hitting her with a spinning enzeguiri before attacking Carmella. Nikki turns around to hit Natalya with a forearm as she tried to attack her from behind.
Carmella takes advantage and rolls Nikki up. 1 - 2 -3! Carmella steals one from Nikki once again!
Natalya and Carmella def. Nikki Bella and Naomi
Funny thing about The Ascension, whenever they come out in a multi-man tag, I know they're there to eat the pin and I'm not expecting anything different today,
Jason Jordan and Jimmy Uso start us off. Jordan with the waistlock on Uso and slamming him before tagging in Chad Gable. Gable works on Uso a little and tags Jordan back in.
Jordan grounds Uso with a double-leg takedown and works on Uso's arm. He tags Gable back in and they hit dual monkey flips on the Usos as Gable remains in the ring as the legal man.Gable catches Uso in the corner and catches him in an illegal arm-bar on the ropes. As the referee starts his count, Gable let's go and gets off the apron.
Jimmy Uso takes the advantage when Gable looks away for a second and he takes Gable's knee out with a chop block.
We come back from the commercial with Viktor pummelling Chad Gable. Viktor tags in Jimmy Uso. As Gable goes to make the tag, The Ascension attack Jordan on the outside. The crowd erupts as Rhyno hits Konnor with a flying clothesline from the apron before taking out Konnor.
Gable finally reaches Heath Slater who cleans house on the Usos. Rhyno comes into the ring and gets thrown out by Viktor before Jordan takes Viktor out. One of the Usos attacked Slater's knee from behind as they tried to take him out the same way they took Chad Gable out before Backlash.
Jimmy Uso has Heath Slater's injured knee in a modified one-legged Boston Crab in the middle of the ring. With no one around he taps out.
The Usos and The Ascension def. American Alpha and Heath Slater and Rhyno
PS - I was wrong, neither of the Ascension ate the pin and they actually ended up on the winning team.
