The Miz and John Morrison have been side by side ever since Morrison returned to WWE in January 2020, but some things just aren’t meant to last.
There had been tension for a number of weeks, but the pair always seemed to be able to find common ground. But on the August 23rd edition of Monday Night RAW, all Morrison found was a vicious attack from The Miz.
Ahead of the show it was announced that Logan Paul would be a guest on Morrison’s talk show, Moist TV. As Paul arrived in the ring both men were met with thunderous boos before Morrison got the interview underway. The segment was quickly interrupted by The Miz who came to seek a share of the spotlight. Miz taunted Logan Paul before Morrison intervened accusing him stealing the limelight.
This escalated into a match between the former WWE Champion and Xavier Woods. Miz’ night swiftly got even worse and Woods emerged victorious. Morrison got back in the ring to console his friend but was ruthlessly attacked and beaten down. Miz finished the job with a Skull Crushing Finale to leave his former friend laying.
It was a night of break-ups on RAW as the fractured relationship between Doudrop and Eva Marie finally came to a violent end. After Doudrop delighted in Eva Marie’s defeat at SummerSlam she was interviewed on RAW where she said she no longer needed her mentor. With Doudrop looking ahead to the future she was taken out by Eva Marie.
Elsewhere on the red brand, Karrion Kross unveiled an interesting new look for his match with Ricochet. No matter the reason for the new attire, it seemed to work as Kross defeated the highflyer with ease.
