Miz TV With Special Guest: Seth Rollins
Well alright, alright, alright. Welcome to the most must see WWE talk show in history. Welcome to, Miz TV! Tonight is not about him, it’s about Brock Lesnar cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase. Without further ado, Miz brings out the Universal Champion Seth Rollins. Rollins has an upcoming title match with Baron Corbin this Friday at WWE Super ShowDown, but it could all change based on The Beast tonight. What is going through his mind? We are assuming that Brock will show up tonight right? We are assuming that Paul Heyman is telling the truth, and the last time that happened was, never. While he is prepared, he will believe it when he sees it. Miz and Rollins have successfully cashed in their money in the bank briefcases in the past.
This is a totally different animal because it’s The Beast, Brock Lesnar. Rollins doesn’t need Miz to oversell Brock Lesnar. Rollins knows the gravity of the situation. If Brock cashed in tonight, he would be relieved. He cannot focus on what might be but what will be. Friday, he will be defending his Universal Championship against Baron Corbin. Nobody likes Baron Corbin, but he did win the Fatal Four Way Match and he is the number one contender. If he’s going to be the fighting champion, he needs to focus on Baron Corbin and stomping his head into the mat. We see Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman arrive at the Frank Erwin Center. Instead of walking towards the ring, Brock needs to get his gear on. So no cash in yet ladies and gentlemen.

Becky Lynch, Lacey Evans, and Charlotte Flair In-Ring Segment:
The Man has been doing some thinking and she wants to make some changes. She got home for the first time in 63 days. In that time, she has fought across Europe, appeared on a number of talk shows, changed brands, and won the main event of WrestleMania. All of her dreams came through and she has never been more content in her life. Being content is the worst thing for her because that’s when fighters get beat. When Lacey Evans helped Charlotte Flair at Money at the Bank, it lit something under her. When Becky is pissed off there’s no woman on this business that will keep her down. If you did her wrong, she will break her back trying and fighting and she will fight until she can’t no more.

Don’t confuse Ms. Evans with Charlotte Flair. She might have lost at Money in the Bank, but she’s the reason why Becky only has one title left.

She won and became the nine time Women’s Champion. Where’s The Queen’s title now?
Evans tells Charlotte to stop embarrassing herself sweetheart. What is she doing out here? Could anyone hold the ropes for her? She’s strutting out here like a peacock since she’s a daddy’s girl who needs attention. Charlotte is more than halfway to beating her daddy’s world title record. Charlotte has only seen Lacey make tea. She didn’t have to get out of her street clothes to take care of her last week on SmackDown. Charlotte had nine championships, but she has none now. Evans calls Charlotte yesterday’s news. Evans is the face of WWE, so she tells Charlotte to run along to SmackDown. Does Charlotte want to be educated with a Woman’s Right? Evans drops Charlotte with The Woman’s Right. We are about to have an impromptu match right now.

Rey Mysterio & Samoa Joe In-Ring Segment:
Que paso Austin? Rey will lay it out straight. He’s been a part of the WWE for a long time and it’s part of his blood. It’s something he gets to share with his son Dominic because he’s training to become a professional wrestler. Dominic will carve a path for himself. Rey needs to set the right example and do the right thing as a man and as a champion. Rey immediately gets cut off by Samoa Joe. Did Joe come out too early to ruin Rey’s moment? Joe knows what this means for Rey and he heard the word champion and he thought it was his cue. Joe doesn’t want to interrupt because this is a big moment. Joe has an addendum.
He tells Rey not to ruin this moment with a lie. Rey is not relinquishing the united states championship because he’s injured. He’s relinquishing it because he never won the match. Joe’s shoulders never touched the mat. Rey is not here for a moment or to fool anyone. This is not the moment he wanted. Rey has won championships his entire career, through pain and injuries. If he was man enough to do that, he’s man enough to do what he’s going to do tonight. Due to his current shoulder injury at Money in the Bank, Rey Mysterio is here to relinquish his WWE United States Championship to Samoa Joe. Joe locks in The Coquina Clutch to close the segment.

The Firefly FunHouse
Triple H & Randy Orton In-Ring Segment:
It’s been a while since he looked Randy Orton in the eye. This is about drumming up interest in a fight. Maybe someone will say something about their opponent or start a fight. After everything they have been through, there is nothing they are going to say that they haven’t said before. HHH isn’t going to waste his time or the people’s time. Don’t be fooled by the suit because he is coming to Jeddah to kick Orton’s ass. Orton is not Batista. He’s The Legend Killer. HHH knows that better than most. Orton would gladly beat him on Friday and put another notch on his belt. It’s interesting the last few weeks while watching the videos of what they have been through. They have done unspeakable things and there is one thing that stood out that rang true.
They would put the pressure on Orton and he would become a diamond. Orton is one of the best ever to step foot in this ring. A lot of people have tried to put HHH down. They are all gone and he’s still here. Orton is not the one. Orton wants HHH to retrieve his balls from Stephanie’s purse before entering the ring. HHH laughs. That’s a hell of an idea. He will do just that. They are so big and it’s such a burden to carry them around. Maybe he can fit them in a carry on bag and put it in the overhead compartment. Orton wouldn’t know about that because he never had any. HHH will see Orton in Jeddah. HHH throws the microphone at Orton to close the segment.
