Miz TV With Special Guest: Roman Reigns
Tonight is a night of celebration. They’re in Southern California. As soon as MizTV is over, Miz is going to drive to his house in the Hollywood Hills and he’s going to slide into bed with his pregnant wife and talk about their unborn child. Miz brings out his special guest, Roman Reigns. Miz talks about the impressive year Reigns has had so far. From retiring The Undertaker at WrestleMania and having an equally impressive victory last night at No Mercy. John Cena said that last night was a passing of a torch moment. How does that make Reigns feel?
Reigns respects John Cena now. Cena has held the fort down for 15 years. There’s not another top guy who can say that and he respects John Cena. Reigns is proud to say that he beat John Cena last night. It was the biggest win of his entire life. Reigns doesn’t know why he’s sitting in the ring with an idiot like Miz. Why would little ole Miz talk to The Guy? Miz calls himself The Guy because he’s the only man in the ring with a championship around his waist. Miz showed the entire WWE Universe why Jason Jordan is a loser. Reigns has been in the ring with Miz and with Jason Jordan. Jordan is thoroughbred and Miz couldn’t beat Jordan by himself. Reigns wants The MizTourage to get him a cold one.
It’s ironic to hear Reigns talk about the MizTourage because he also rode the coattails of two superstars. If the MizTourage was around five years ago, no one would have remembered the Shield. Is Miz serious? Reigns says that The Shield would’ve whipped The MizTourage’s asses. Ambrose and Rollins are doing their thing and Reigns is focused on capturing the Universal Championship. Miz says that Reigns is disrespecting the MizTourage.
What about the times Reigns choked against Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman, and Brock Lesnar? Reigns has never been the Universal Champion, but he acts like you he’s better than everybody. Since Miz came to Raw, he has carried this show. The Intercontinental Title is the title to have and he will not be disrespected. Reigns wants to fight. Miz points out that he’s wearing a suit. Miz’s pregnant wife is at home so he’s out of here. Kurt Angle comes out on the stage. Angle announces that The MizTourage will have to take on the team of Matt Hardy & Jason Jordan.

Bliss conquered the best of the RAW Women’s Division at No Mercy. Bliss was expecting congratulations or cute memes about her victory. It was about nonsense and gossip. Everyone was wondering about Sasha and Bayley or Asuka’s debut at TLC. The WWE Universe is so fixated with what could happen tomorrow that they forget that they’re in the presence of a goddess now.

In the ring, she respects Mickie, but she doesn’t want to see Mickie break a hip. Bliss is so genuine.
The last thing Bliss needs to do is run through her accolades and tell her what she can or cannot do. Mickie is a six time champion and she has broken down barriers in the WWE before Alexa was wearing a training bra. Looks like Bliss still has a problem with that today. This ring is no place for a coward. Bliss calls Mickie an old lady. Mickie slaps Bliss in the face. Mickie lands a The Mick Kick that sends Bliss out of the ring.
