The Awesome Truth was terrible in so many ways. The Miz just off the back of that title run still fighting for relevance, R-Truth's descent into insanity started to jump the shark*and they were thrown together so they could lose to John Cena and The Rock because the WWE had such awful roster depth, essentially destroyed any momentum R-Truth and Miz had at the time.
I still cannot believe R-Truth main evented a PPV that year.... TWICE. The show has come a long way folks.
*I initially really enjoyed the R-Truth heel run
