Live blog from WrestleMania XXVII: WWE champion The Miz vs. John Cena
Live report from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta:
The Miz came out to a mixed reaction, while Cena was booed louder than anyone on the card. I’m talking Vickie Guerrero heat times 10.
After about eight minutes of back and forth action, Cena hit a flurry offense, but Miz halted his momentum with a DDT.
Cena locked on the STF at the 7-minute mark, but Miz made it to the ropes for a break.
After Cena was briefly distracted by Alex Riley, Miz connected with the Skull-Crushing Finale for a near fall.
Miz went for the move again, but Cena blocked it and there was a ref bump at 9 minutes. Cena landed the Attitude Adjustment, but there was no referee.
With the ref down, Riley entered the ring and nailed Cena with the briefcase. The referee recovered and made the count, but Cena kicked out at the last second.
Miz went to hit Cena with the briefcase, but he ducked and Miz nailed Riley. Cena then hit the Attitude Adjustment, but Miz kicked out and the crowd erupted.
The action spilled outside the ring at 12 minutes, and Cena speared Miz over the top of the barricade. Both men were counted out and the match was declared a draw at 14:44.
The Rock then hit the ring. The anonymous Raw GM chimed in, and Rock stepped to the podium. He began to read the GM’s e-mail:
“And I quote. As the Raw GM, I think … It doesn’t matter what you think!” Rock then trashed the computer and ordered the match to be re-started.
Cena and Miz got back in the ring and began exchanging punches near the ropes. When Cena turned around, he walked right into a Rock Bottom from The Rock.
The Miz covered Cena and the referee made the three count. Your winner and still WWE champion, The Miz.
After the match, Rock slapped Miz around and hit the People’s Elbow on him to end the show.
