Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring. He says the weeks and moments leading up to No Mercy go the best of him and he put his title on the line for one more shot at the Intercontinental Title. He did not know if he would be here and he tells people to hit the preview button on your guide. He did not know if that was going to be the last time he was going to see the fans, get taped up, or formulate a plan for his match. He did not know if he would spray tan Zack Ryder’s back for the last time. For the first time in twelve years, Dolph says he doubted himself and he thought he made a mistake. He had people telling him he didn’t have to do this, but Dolph says he did. Dolph says he knew the moment he walked down that ramp and set foot in this ring, he knew this is where he belonged. This is his home and no matter what, at No Mercy, hell was going to freeze over, but he would walk out as Intercontinental Champion.

Miz’ music plays and he comes to the ring. Miz and Maryse hold a moment of silence and Dolph wants to know if they are going to say something. MIz says he wants to mourn the death of the Intercontinental Title. He asks if everyone is happy. A title was not lost, it was the death of a title. He was champion for 188 days. He brought the prestige back, not Dolph and not Daniel Bryan. He made this the most prestigious title on Smackdown. Your victory is a funeral for the Intercontinental Title’s legacy. It is dragged down by the mediocrity of you. If you think this is the end, you are delusional. This is act two. This is where the hero is in peril and he has to overcome the odds. Dolph is a temporarylayover. This is the Empire Strikes Back. He says the ending will be that he gets the gold and the girl, and he already has the girl. Dolph says he is glad that Miz is out here right now. Dolph says he was going to share something with the entire WWE Universe. We have a video package and it is of what happened on Sunday night. Dolph wants to go back to see if Miz was crying. Dolph asks Miz if he is about to cry now. Miz asks Dolph if he thinks this is funny. You and Daniel Bryan got a good laugh out of that. That face was all of the things he did and the sacrifices he made being taken away. Miz says the crowd would not know about sacrifice. If you think for one second that he did everything to keep that, what will he do to get it back. Miz says he is not done with Dolph and . . . neither are they. Kenny and Mikey come out and they have a cheer for Dolph and they tell Dolph he has to face both of them in a Handicap Match.

In Ring: Miz says this is a very special edition of the most must see show in history. It is MizTV: A Dolphumentary. Miz says he wants to bring his guest out since it might be his last time on Smackdown, Dolph Ziggler. Miz says tonight is not about him, it is about you. The stakes could not be higher. It is his Intercontinental Title against Dolph’s career. If it ends, it will not be forgotten. Dolph says he was looking for the ropes when he started with wrestling. We hear Booker calling Dolph old news. The voice over talks about the man who attempted to do the impossible. From an unimpressive debut to a spirited attempt at attention. A Man who fought through humiliation after humiliation after humilation to make it to the top of sports entertainment for ten minutes. We get comments talking about how he has been a failure. Jericho asks if we ever saw him in a main event. Then Becky Lynch and Edge talk about his comedy. After eleven years of mediocrity, we say farewell to the career. Miz applauds the clip while Dolph is not happy. Miz says if his career was as bad as Dolph’s he would have quit a long time ago. Dolph says he is not gone and he calls Miz an ass face.

Dolph says he could have walked away, but he couldn’t. For every ten bad moments, there was one moment when a fan would encourage him. Dolph talks about the work with Make A Wish. He says that is real emotion that does not go away from him. The night after Wrestlemania when he cashed in the contract to become World Champion. That was magical. Everyone was a part of that and that is why he became World Champion. That is why he cannot walk away. Dolph says he came to a crossroads and he had to put his career on the line because if he cannot deliver, he does not belong here. There is something that tells him he can deliver and that he can beat Miz and will become the Intercontinental Title on Sunday. He tells Miz that Miz is not taking his career from him. From the highs and lows, he is not done yet.

Miz tells Dolph ‘Yes you are’. Miz says if you want to talk about emotions and five year olds in the front row. Say goodbye to all of that because it will end, thanks to him. Miz says he has just the thing to raise Dolph’s spirits. We see the return of Mikey and Kenny from the Spirit Squad. Kenny and Mike do a cheer for Dolph. Miz says two got lost in transit when they got sent back to OVW. Miz says this means a spot opened up for Dolph when he loses on Sunday. Nicky reunites with the Spirit Squad. Dolph tells Miz they can go right now. Kenny and Mikey attack Dolph. Dolph with an uppercut to Mikey and a super kick to Kenny. Mikey comes off the turnbuckles and is met with a super kick. Miz tries for a Skull Crushing Finale but Ziggler escapes and Miz avoids a super kick and goes back to his wife and his title belt.

No Mercy 2016 Preview: Dolph puts his career on the line against The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship

Frustrated by coming up short in one big-match scenario after another, Dolph Ziggler has agreed to risk it all and put his career on the line against Intercontinental Champion The Miz at WWE No Mercy.

If The Showoff wins, the monkey is off his back and the prestigious Intercontinental Title is around his waist. However, if Ziggler loses, he must hang up his boots.

The A-Lister goaded Ziggler into accepting the perilous stipulation on the Sept. 27 edition of SmackDown LIVE in Cleveland, with both Superstars’ parents in attendance. Though The Showoff was initially reluctant, he soon declared that if he couldn’t defeat The Miz once and for all, then he didn’t deserve to have a career.

Ziggler has earned plenty of hardware during his time in WWE, winning the World Heavyweight Championship twice and the Intercontinental Title four times. Yet, the records books of late reflect a different story. He failed to dethrone The Miz in back-to-back weeks, albeit due to the underhanded tactics of The A-Lister and his wife, Maryse. (The Miz and Maryse illegally sprayed a substance in Ziggler’s eyes, behind the referee’s back, in both matches.)

At WWE No Mercy, The Showoff will have one more chance to win when it matters most. With his career in jeopardy, will Ziggler prove to be a clutch performer? Or will The Miz and Maryse find another way to stop The Showoff and, in the process, end Ziggler’s career on a sour note, cementing a legacy of “what if’s”?

Don’t miss out when The Miz puts his Intercontinental Title on the line against Dolph Ziggler’s career at WWE No Mercy, live on WWE Network Sunday, Oct. 9, at 8 ET/5 PT.

Miz says his wife informed him that Dolph Ziggler’s parents are in the crowd. He says this must be really hard for you because you created a world class elite level loser.

Dolph’s music plays and he comes into the ring. Dolph says Miz can say what he wants to him but you don’t talk to his parents, his friends, or his city. If you need to say it, say it to his face. Miz says he has said it over and over. Dolph says Miz has cheated over and over. Miz asks if it will say in the record books that Miz cheated? It will say Miz is a champion and a movie star. What will it say about your career Dolph? You are a loser. When will your mediocre career end? You are just like that guy who opens things and finds a way to lose. Miz says he would be embarrassed if he had Ziggler’s career. Miz says Dolph and his family should be embarrassed of him and his career because he did nothing with it of late. You keep losing and losing. Miz says he feels sorry for Dolph. Miz says he is done because he figures it is time for Dolph to ask for one more match, but the answer is no. Dolph has nothing for him unless he is wiling to give up his career.

Miz leaves the ring and he stops by Dolph’s family and says they must be so proud. Dolph tells Mike to wait. He says this is all he has. A few minutes a night 300 nights a year is all he has. This is what he loves. Things you love do not love you back. You can give and give and give but you get nothing in return. People come up to you and ask you why are you still here. It is because he can’t stop. It is a sickness. He thought his career would end up bigger. He cannot stop himself. Dolph says you put that title up one more time. Dolph says he will put up his entire career.

Miz wants to make sure that he heard Dolph correctly. He says that if you lose, you don’t go to Raw or NXT or take a sabbatical. You will be done with WWE. Dolph says your title . . . my career. He either walks out champion or he is done. Either way, he is put out of his misery. Miz accepts the match.
