The Miz Promo: 

Miz has been laser focused on one road for the last ten years, the Road To WrestleMania. But at what cost? He’s taken advantage of people and sacrificed every relationship in this business except with his wife. That’s what his friendship with Shane McMahon meant to him. It was all to prove to one man to make him proud of him, his dad. When his dad was in the ring with him, it was the first time he heard him say that he was proud of him. Shane made that happen. Miz gave Shane his dream of being a tag team champion. He was warned about Shane. At WWE FastLane, Shane McMahon attacked him from behind in front of his 68 year old father.

His father watched Shane decimate him. What human being would do that? Then Shane put his hands on his father. Grabbed him by the throat while asking for help for his son. Shane is rotten to the core, like his father. Shane wasn’t born best in the world, he’s a McMahon, born the worst. If Shane thinks he’s something special because he’s a billionaire and can do whatever he wants. Shane may own this company, but you don’t own Miz or Kofi Kingston. Miz was not born of privilege.

He was told by everyone that he was average and wouldn’t amount to anything. Miz went out on his own and proved everyone wrong.  He went on the Real World and then came to WWE and became a champion. Miz did that on his own. Miz prided himself on hard work. He’s is a proven success story. He had to earn his father’s love. He had to earn the fan’s respect. Miz believes that hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard enough. It’s been thirteen years and he feels that he’s earned it. Miz tells Shane that he deserves the one, a best in the world ass whipping at WrestleMania.

Rey Mysterio Backstage Interview: 

The Kevin Owens Show Featuring Special Guests: Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair

Welcome everyone to the new and improved Kevin Owens Show. Owens points out the new fancy graphics and improved because of the way that he’s dressed. It’s been quite the bumpy ride and it looks like it’s going to get worse. Owens usually calls WrestleMania KOMania, but this year it’s all about Kofi. He’ll be watching tonight’s gauntlet match very closely. In the meantime, let’s talk about the main event of WrestleMania. Owens brings his very special guests: Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.

Nobody knows better than him that friendships can go wrong. No one can get under your skin more than your best friend. A lot of things have been said back and forth over the last few months. Ronda Rousey called Becky a joke. Ronda said that WWE could make this a handicap match with Charlotte and Becky and it would be fine. Rousey has been a loose cannon to the point her husband had to intervene. Ronda is not here tonight, but Charlotte is.

Becky said that Charlotte and Ronda are the chosen ones. Charlotte was shoe horned into the match and doesn’t belong. Charlotte agrees with Becky’s sentiments. Owens says that nobody really wants to see you ladies talk any more. This is the Kevin Owens Show and he always says Fight Owens Fight. Right now it should be Fight Becky Fight. It should be Fight Charlotte Fight. What do we say ladies? Charlotte says that she would beat the holy hell out of Becky. Before Becky can respond Owens exits the ring. Becky and Charlotte starts brawling around the ringside area.

AJ Styles Backstage Interview: 

Daniel Bryan Promo: 

Bryan is talking about injustice.  Kofi Kingston being in this gauntlet match is an injustice. Kofi doesn’t deserve the opportunity.  Bryan knows what it’s like to have the deck stacked against him and have the authority hold him down. This is different. Kofi was chosen to replace Mustafa Ali in the gauntlet match before the Elimination Chamber. He was hand picked and given an opportunity that he had never earned. In that gauntlet match and in the Elimination Chamber, Kofi fought valiantly and he lost both times.

Kofi has earned nothing. Because Kofi Kingston, unlike him, is nothing more than a B+ player. That’s okay for all of you because to all of you B+ is good enough. That sounds like a good idea for a shirt to go with all of the crap people don’t need to buy. B+ is not good enough. No matter how much you chant for Kofi, it won’t change the fact that he lost in the gauntlet and Elimination Chamber. When Kofi was given another chance at FastLane, he lost again. The New Day comes out to interrupt Bryan. It’s time for the Gauntlet Match.
