KNOXVILLE, Tennessee - Sometimes destiny and determination are no match for deceit. With the opportunity to be the No. 1 contender for the WWE Title hanging in the balance, The Miz and his sycophantic follower, Alex Riley, weren’t taking any chances.

The Miz def. Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio in a Triple Threat Match; WWE Champion John Cena arranged an “I Quit” Match at Over the Limit

Alex Riley’s road to redemption just got a little shorter. During The Miz’s Triple Threat Match against Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio to determine the No. 1 contender for the WWE Title, Riley proved invaluable to his boss. Just as it appeared that Mysterio would pin The Mexican Aristocrat for the win, Miz’s boot-licking lackey interfered, pulling Del Rio from the ring.

The intrusion allowed The Miz to triumph, propelling him into a WWE Title Match against John Cena at Over the Limit. Upon hearing the news, The Champ addressed the WWE Universe, and The Cleveland Screamer in particular, explaining that he had decided to make their title match in two weeks an “I Quit” Match.

Then, when tensions had seemed to settle, R-Truth flew into the ring and attacked an unsuspecting Mysterio, declaring, “Now, that’s what’s up!”

No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match arranged

Three slots, four competitors. Something had to give. And so it was when Alberto Del Rio, Rey Mysterio, The Miz and R-Truth each made a strong case as to why they should be the No. 1 contender for the WWE Title against John Cena.

After The Mexican Aristocrat argued about the title being his destiny, The Master of the 619 cut him off at the knees, arguing otherwise. The Awesome One wasn’t about to be excluded, so he, naturally, shot off his mouth, too. Finally, Truth bragged about how he put John Morrison in the hospital with a neck injury in the wake of his attack last week and insisted he get an opportunity as well.

Raw’s anonymous General Manager, however, decided to arrange a Triple Threat Match to determine the No. 1 contender for the WWE Title – and, among the four, the rapping Superstar found himself odd man out.
