The Miz and Baron Corbin spent the last few weeks using social media channels to go after each other in increasingly personal ways, up to and including Corbin saying he would make Miz call him “daddy” after their match. That match took place at tonight’s (Sun., Nov. 19, 2017) WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV) at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
He did not make Miz call him “daddy.”
But he did win the match.
The Miz’s wife, a target of Corbin’s, made her way ringside, despite the fact that she’s pregnant, so she could get involved in the action in some form:

Just after that, Corbin told Maryse “this is what a real man looks like” before Miz snapped on him. That was the crux of the match, that the issues between the two were so personal they were too eager to do damage. Corbin also had to contend with The Miztourage.
He did so, despite a bad knee he was selling after an early attack, and countered Miz with an End of Days following the “It” kicks to score the pinfall and the win. It was the first win for SmackDown Live on the evening.
“Hey Miz, my hand went up and your mouth went closed,” Corbin said.
That’s not how the saying goes, but the winner gets a pass.
