The Miz responded by recalling his match against The Rock at Survivor Series, 2011. He stated, Truth was a fun tag team partner. Like we had a blast. I mean, I got arrested in Cleveland and thrown out of the building. It was amazing. Like we had so much fun, and then to be able to go up against Cena and Rock in Rock’s first match back, to be able to take the People’s Elbow was incredible.”

“I mean, I remember being on the real world going home and being like ‘what do I want to do with the rest of my life and looking on the shelf and there’s a Rock action figure and saying, ‘I want to be a WWE superstar.’ There I am, like 15 years later, in the middle of the ring, in Rock’s first match back in eight years in a sold-out MSG. It’s insane.

Their conflict produced one of the most exciting tag team battles ever. However, Cena and The Rock defeated Awesome Truth.
