The New Day, Vince McMahon and Daniel Bryan In-Ring Segment:

If we could be serious for a minute, the last few months have been an emotional roller coaster. It’s been an incredible journey from New Day Sucks to New Day Rocks over their five years. It’s been incredible to perform for the WWE Universe. One hell of an experience and The New Day want to thank everyone. Big E has spoken with Woods and after all of the obstacles placed in Kofi’s way, they have talked about walking away.  They have made a lot of friends, but the thing that has been hard on him and E has been how poorly Kofi has been treated. It’s not just recently, but over the last 11 years. Power of Positivity is not just a catchphrase, Kofi exudes it. Kofi doesn’t know the word quit. They cannot make that decision until they get answers. The person who has those answers in Vince McMahon. The New Day is asking Mr. McMahon to come out here and address them face to face so they can talk about the issues they have.

Before Vince can speak, he’s immediately interrupted by Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan who are standing on the stage. Vince shouldn’t waste another breath to placate the fragile egos of the New Day. If they want to quit, let them quit. The New Day is nothing but a stale novelty act, a stale novelty act that you created. Vince can pick another group of three from NXT and call them Fresh Afternoon. Let them throw pancakes into the crowd. Kofi is nothing more than a B+ player. Kofi lost at Elimination Chamber and Fastlane. Don’t let Big E get in your head. Don’t let the parasites get into your head. Vince has always been correct about Kofi. The instinct that he’s not championship material is correct. These people have been wrong.

Just like Kofi, these people have refused to accept that reality. Is Bryan too afraid to face Kofi one on one? Bryan has become everything that he fought against. He’s turned into a hypocrite. That’s why he’s out here right now. Vince wants everyone to shut up. The New Day were never going to quit and there’s not a bone in their bodies that would make them quit. This is just a way to get others to think you will quit out of protest to Kofi. Vince gets it.  Everybody loves what we have here, almost everybody. Kofi will always be a B+ player. Are The New Day a B+ tag team?  They have so much respect and passion for Kofi. Can they put Kofi in the WWE Championship match? Kofi is done having opportunities. If The New Day can win tonight’s Tag Team Gauntlet Match, Kofi will be going to WrestleMania.

The Miz & Shane McMahon In-Ring Segment: 

We are 12 days away from WrestleMania. Miz is looking forward to ripping Shane McMahon apart limb by limb. Shane lit a fire under him that he never had before. Miz has been here for thirteen years but this is personal. When Shane put his hands on Miz’s father, he did it up close and personal. Miz wants everyone to see him decimate Shane.

When he heard that Miz wanted a Falls Count Anywhere match, he couldn’t believe it. Miz is as dumb as his father looks. Shane had some time to reflect on what he did at FastLane. He watches it over and over again and the more he watches it, the better he feels. He felt it in his bones. Shane paralyzed Miz’s father with fear. It was euphoric and now he has an absolute taste for it. Shane will quench his thirst and he will beat Miz up all over the stadium. Shane accepts the stipulation. He will punish George for his the greatest MizTake in his life and that was when he impregnated Miz’s mother.
