Roman Reigns, The Miz, Shane McMahon, Elias, Daniel Bryan, Erick Rowan, and The Usos In-Ring Segment:
The Big Dog has some unfinished business from Raw. Let’s settle these issues right now. Elias is a huge problem now and we will deal with it now. Here is the solution. Roman brings out The Miz. Miz thanks Roman for the invite. It’s good to be back in London and good to be back in blue. Miz mocks Elias by doing some karaoke. We’re five days away from Money In The Bank. Five days until Shane cannot run or hide. Miz whoop Shane’s ass all over MetLife Stadium at WrestleMania. Shane put his hands on his father and that’s unforgivable.
Shane may have dodged him last night, but on Sunday he will be locked inside a steel cage. Shane McMahon appears on the stage with Elias. Just because The Big Dog invited The Miz to SmackDown Live, it doesn’t make him one of the wild card talents. Miz disgusts him. Shane will invoke his privilege and ban Miz from the building. Elias wants Roman to stay there. Roman can make all the corny jokes he wants, but underestimating Elias will be the biggest mistake of his career.
He will prove why Mr. McMahon chose him as the biggest acquisition in Smackdown history. You will see what the McMahon Family already knows. WWE stands for Walk With Elias. Shane wants to get Miz and Roman out of the ring. There’s other superstars who hate The Miz. Shane brings out the brand new SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions, Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan. Beatdown City. The Usos storm into the ring. Stereo Topes to the outside. The Bloodline and Miz clears the ring to close the segment.
