WWE World Cup Quarterfinals
Rey Mysterio vs. Randy Orton
Mysterio dominated early but Orton hit a huge dropkick to block a high flying move taking the momentum. Orton tried to unmask Rey but failed. Rey blocked a superplex with a headbutt and then hit a springboard move into a DDT. Orton dodged the 619 and hit a DDT. Mysterio reversed an RKO into a roll-up and got the early victory.
Randy hit the RKO after the match and then started to dismantle Rey Mysterio outside the ring. Orton then bounced Rey off the announce table and the officials had to help Mysterio back to the lockers.
Result: Rey Mysterio def. Randy Orton and advanced to the Semifinal
Backstage, the Miz was really happy about Mysterio's unfortunate condition as the A-Lister was about to face him in the next round.
The Miz vs. Jeff Hardy
The Miz was in control and hit a huge dropkick in the corner. The Miz knocked Jeff Hardy and showboated. Hardy got up unfazed and began a series of attacks on The Miz. Hardy went for the Twist of Fate but missed. He hit a quick Whisper in the Wind to get only a near fall. Hardy hit a huge move to the outside from the ropes and he looked to have hurt himself in the process.
Back in the ring, Jeff went for a roll-up but it was a 2 count. Miz hit the Skull Crushing Finale and got the victory after dodging a Twist of Fate.
