Team ‘Awesome Truth’ get fired from WWE

Following the ‘Night of Champions‘ attacks, the team of Miz and R-Truth apologized to Triple H. If Triple H would have lost the match he had to resign. But ‘The Game’ triumphed in the end.

The following week, Miz and Truth went up to Triple H and stated that they cherish their job and love being WWE superstars. Although Triple H was hesitant, he let them, but not without a fine of 250,000 dollars. They also had to face CM Punk and John Cena the same night in a tag team match.

Following Cena and Punk’s win over team ‘Awesome Truth’, Triple H came out and fired both men from WWE.

The Miz and R-Truth return

The 2011 Hell in a Cell pay-per-view main event was a triple threat match between John Cena, CM Punk, and Alberto Del Rio. Cena was locked outside and when the cage was lifted for him to enter, two other hooded figures entered as well. They were R-Truth and The Miz, who ran inside and attacked everyone in sight. The cage was lowered again.

As soon as the assault began, Triple H came into the scene and tried to open the cage’s door. Soon, the whole locker room was out there trying to do the same. Unfortunately, the key to the chain lock was inside the cell.

In the meantime, team ‘Awesome Truth’ continued their assault on all wrestlers, referees, and cameramen. Finally, a man armed with a pair of bolt-cutters appeared, and could stop the beat-down. Miz and R-Truth both were arrested following their actions. As the police were taking them away, Triple H got hold of them and landed many nasty blows as well.

Luckily, the security and policemen could control the situation.
