Foley asks if it will be the Wrestlemania main eventing, John Cena defeating, awesome inducing, self surviving superstar or the vacation taking, sitting in chairs, make up wearing, Miz, who shows up on Smackdown and raw from time to time. Miz wonders if he needs to ask. He says Really? [a few times]. He tells Foley he does not need any motivational speech. He says he is the least of Mick Foley’s problems. He says they have tag team champions that do not like each other, an apex preditor who does not play well with others and a cheap shot artist who stole his title.

Miz says that Kofi if the last one who should be trying to bring peace since when he went to shake his hand last week, Kofi kicked him in the face. Kofi says that unless Miz takes a couple of steps back, he will do it again. Foley says as surprising as it might be, the voice of reason might be Randy Orton. Orton says he has spat in Foley’s face many times. He says Foley threw him in to thumb tacks long ago but despite that he prefers him to anyway else in the ring. He says there is not a single member of this team he likes or trusts. He pushes the Survivor Series poster over. Ziggler’s music hits and his team show up at the top of the ramp.

Del rio says he is former a champion and should not be spoken to in this way. Ziggler says he is a future champion. Mick Foley tries to say something but Ziggler tells him to shut up. Foley says he used to run this place and he asked Booker T if he could have a free hand at making some good matches tonight, in Cleveland Ohio [pop]. Booker T said he could. Foley says Ziggler and Del Rio need to learn to get along before Survivor Series. He says it will be Ziggler and Del rio against 2 other people who need to learn to get along, The Miz and Randy Orton. Ziggler says he’s glad Miz quit his team since they have someone much better than Miz now, that is Barrett. Barrett says Ziggler is making him blush. The way he sees it, the quitter is replaced with a winner. Foley says Barrett can take on one half of the tag team champions tonight. Kane. Daniel Bryan says no no no no. Damien Sandow says that it is obvious team Foley is in disarray. You have a goat face one word wonder that is running around with an anger problem. You have Kane who is the very reason his partner is not with us. You have A braded neon mute who claims he has ability to fly. As he is about to continue Kofi interrupts and says that from a scholar he was expecting something smarter than that. Kofi tells Sandow that if he wants to question his ability then he is happy to show him first hand. Foley says his job just got made easier as the first match will be Kofi Kingston v Damian Sandow and it starts now.
