The Miz could not have been giddier about his victory over Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam, and he and Maryse arrived on SmackDown LIVE fully intent on mocking his bitter rival, reenacting Bryan’s famous, emotional retirement speech. However, The A-Lister and his bride’s good times were cut short when Bryan arrived, accusing Miz of being a coward after the controversial conclusion to their match at The Biggest Event of Summer that saw Miz deck Bryan in the face with brass knuckles that Maryse handed him moments prior.
In turn, The “Yes!” Man got right to brass tacks and wasted no time verbally slamming The Miz, saying he was a “wannabe Hollywood star cosplaying as a wrestler.” An irate Maryse responded to Bryan, defacingly saying that Daniel should just retire and change his name to “Daniel Bella.”
Bryan appeared ready to respond, but before he could, his wife Brie Bella dashed out and made a beeline for the ring. Maryse quickly got out of dodge when she saw the sprinting Bella coming, which resulted in Brie going Brie Mode on The Awesome One, punching him square in the face several times. Bryan then joined Bella in the ring, clotheslined Miz over the top rope and sent The A-List Couple scrambling.
Before they could completely hightail it out of dodge though, Bryan grabbed a microphone and let everyone know that he had just spoken with Paige and that he and Miz would run it back at WWE Hell in a Cell… except this time it would be Bryan & Brie vs. Miz & Maryse in a Mixed Tag Team Match!
Brie and Nikki Bella returned tonight at the very first Women’s Royal Rumble match! Nikki Bella was number 27 and Brie Bella was number 28. The Bellas worked together on some eliminations and then Nikki eliminated her sister! Nikki was the second to last woman in the match, eliminated by the winner, Asuka.
After proving themselves the true “It” couple by defeating The Miz & Maryse in an action-packed WrestleMania Mixed Tag Team Match, John Cena & Nikki Bella got engaged on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
In the months preceding The Show of Shows, The A-Lister and his devious spouse made it their mission to paint a picture of Cena and Nikki as nothing more than “fake” and “power-grabbing,” a sentiment they brought to life in a series of scathing mic rants and Total Bellas parodies.
For their part, The Cenation Leader and Fearless Nikki maintained that Miz had stolen everything he was from other, “more talented” competitors, while Maryse had never really done anything at all. As a result, WrestleMania became an opportunity for each couple to show their opponents, the WWE Universe and themselves what they were truly all about. Continue reading Wrestlemania Results
The Miz & Maryse promised the WWE Universe the shocking conclusion to their Total Bellas spoof series on “Miz TV,” and they did just that. The new installment continued to pick on The A-List Couple’s WrestleMania opponents, drawing John Cena & Nikki Bella out to the arena to address the smear campaign.
Cena went off and retorted everything about The A-Lister and his bride’s spoof. He then challenged either Miz or Maryse to get WrestleMania started early, but the two instead opted to walk away and live to fight another day … Sunday, specifically.
The Miz & Maryse chose to have some fun at the expense of John Cena & Nikki Bella, creating “never-before-seen lost” Total Bellas footage (it was really just them in costume). In spite of this, Cena faced off with Fandango, who was accompanied by Tyler Breeze dressed up like Nikki Bella and deeming himself Breezy Bella. This prompted The Cenation Leader to bring out the REAL Nikki Bella to watch his back. Cena dominated Fandango, and when “Breezy Bella” tried to get involved, Fearless Nikki intercepted and took out Breeze as Cena handled Fandango with the Attitude Adjustment for the win.
After the match, the couple celebrated as they head to The Ultimate Thrill Ride with nothing but momentum.
Following their vicious attack on John Cena and Nikki Bella, which consisted of a physical assault on SmackDown LIVE and a verbal tongue-lashing on WWE Talking Smack last week, The Miz and Maryse doubled down on the verbal portion on this very special edition of “Miz TV.” Maryse suggested that Nikki coerced her out of the first season of Total Divas, but Cena and Nikki soon crashed the party as Miz & Maryse got out of dodge.
Fearless Nikki took the microphone to retort with a fiery message, suggesting that she and Maryse throw down in a match right now. Miz declined the match for his wife, stating that she has nothing to prove. However, a quite irritated-with-Miz Daniel Bryan emerged to make an even bigger match — John Cena & Nikki Bella vs. The Miz & Maryse at WrestleMania! Cena & Nikki look thrilled; Miz & Maryse … not so much.
In their first match together as a tag team, John Cena & Nikki Bella made quick work of James Ellsworth and his “friend who is a girl” Carmella defeating them with some impressive and synchronized tandem offense.
However, the Total Bellas stars would not have long to celebrate, as The Miz & Maryse left the SmackDown LIVE announce table to blindside the victorious couple. After brutalizing The Cenation Leader & Fearless Nikki, The A-Lister and his bride yet again tore down Cena and Nikki’s character and then shared a celebratory kiss in the ring.
Matters on “Miz TV” get explosive between John Cena, The Miz, Maryse and Nikki Bella
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Following the contentious events of last week’s SmackDown LIVE, John Cena journeyed to “Miz TV.”
Cena arrived, however The Miz immediately cut The Cenation Leader’s microphone and The A-Lister proceeded to go on a verbal tirade against the 16-time World Champion. When Miz finally granted Cena access to the mic, he responded with an impassioned speech on Miz’s character.
The situation intensified when a disgusted Maryse slapped John. However, the slaps would soon cease when an incensed Nikki Bella ran out to equal the odds. Miz & Maryse hightailed it out, putting a cap on the drama … for now.
After months of verbal and physical attacks, Nikki Bella and Natalya finally settled the score in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. The contest proved brutal with both The Queen of Black Harts and Fearless Nikki refusing to back down.
Then, just when It appeared that Bella was closing in on the victory, Maryse interfered, hitting Fearless Nikki multiple times with a steel pipe in what could only be seen as retribution for Nikki being thrown into her by Natalya backstage earlier in the contest. Maryse was soon pulled to the back by her husband, The Miz, but her interjection allowed Natalya to defeat the defenseless Nikki for the win.
