Miz TV with Special Guests: Shane McMahon, Drew McIntyre, and Elias
Welcome to the most must see WWE talk show in history, Miz TV. Miz is in a mood to fight because he must follow the script tonight. Miz brings out Shane McMahon, Drew McIntyre, and Elias. Miz messed up the dummy card, so Shane lets Greg Hamilton do the proper introduction. There’s usually a special musical guest so that’s why he brought Elias with him. Elias plays a riff on his electric guitar. At WWE Super Showdown, Shane beat Roman Reigns in the middle of the ring. Roman shouldn’t be ashamed because he lost to the best in the world.
Miz says that all of those accomplishments are tainted. Shane became the best in the world because Miz was injured. Miz mollywhopped Shane all over MetLife Stadium, but he won by a technicality. Shane won at Money in the Bank by slipping out of his jersey. Roman Reigns was giving Shane a systematic beatdown until the Scottish Sycophant came out. We see a clip of Roman Reigns post match interview. McIntyre says that Roman Reigns lets his emotions get the best of him. That will be his downfall at Stomping Grounds. Roman should know that McIntyre is not like anyone in WWE. When he hurts someone, he enjoys it. McIntyre has a weapon that no one else has, The Claymore. At Stomping Grounds, McIntyre will kick Roman’s bloody head off.
Kicking ass and taking names and that name will be Roman Reigns. McIntyre is Roman’s equal, but he doesn’t have to be Shane’s lackey. Shane cannot be trusted. Shane says that Miz is harboring some resentment. Miz has something in common with Roman, they lost to the best in the world. There’s nothing special about Shane. He’s talentless hack who was lucky to be born a McMahon. Shane says that Miz shares a genetic link with a baked potato. Miz is pissed. Maybe there is some unfinished business. Maybe Miz wants another shot at the Best in the World. Why not do it right now? Do you want the match? There’s two conditions. Miz will have to defeat Elias and McIntyre in order to get his dream match against the Best in the World.

Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross Backstage Segment:
The New Day, Dolph Ziggler, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn In-Ring Segment:
Your boy Big E is back, again. The way things are going, if he had a title run for every return, he would be Charlotte Flair. That’s a booking flight joke according to Kofi Kingston. It’s time to get down to business. For the first time in two months, The New Day are back and they have a match tonight. They will end that match quickly so Xavier Woods can get back to E3. They’re going up against Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and Dolph Ziggler. It’s three dudes who have tried to hold down the New Day. What happened to Sami Zayn? Kofi beat him. What happen to Kevin Owens at Money In The Bank? Kofi beat him. What happen to Dolph Ziggler at WWE Super ShowDown? You know the drill here. There will be no sneak attacks or hit and runs. Kofi will remain your WWE Champion.
Dolph Ziggler comes out to interrupt The New Day. Ziggler put Kofi on a pedestal. Unfortunately Kofi betrayed himself, Ziggler and the entire WWE Universe. There’s only one reason why Kofi’s still the WWE Champion. We see a clip of Xavier Woods nailing Ziggler with an Apron Enzuigiri. The footage doesn’t lie and it should’ve been him. At Stomping Grounds, there will be nowhere for Kofi to run. No one there to save him. Ziggler and Kofi will be locked inside a steel cage. The world will know what Ziggler has known all along. Without Kofi’s friends and taking the easy way out, he can never beat Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler forgot to mention that he also kicked Woods in the face. Did Ziggler think he wasn’t going to do anything to retaliate?
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn joins the conversation. Zayn cannot stand injustice. That’s what we have going on here. If Sami Zayn came out and kicked Kofi Kingston in his face to help Kevin Owens win the title at Money in the Bank, everyone would have been up in arms seeking justice. When Xavier Woods kicks poor Dolph Ziggler in the face and helps Kofi retain the championship, you are all okay with that. It shows that these disgusting people do not care about justice. These people have no morals or ethical code. All that matters is who you like and don’t like. Zayn and Owens only care about righting wrongs.
They enjoy every opportunity to beat up the New Day. Big E enjoyed watching Zayn getting his ass kicked on Raw. This is another example of hypocrisy. If anyone else wore that referee shirt, there would have been suspensions or firings. WWE Universe are hypocrites. Ziggler says that Kofi is the biggest hypocrite of them all. This championship run is not about all of you, it’s about a man who will walk through fire to show that he’s the very best. Ziggler took the coward’s way out. The tagline is kicking ass and taking names right? Well, Kofi will indeed take Ziggler’s name. Kofi will remain your WWE World Heavyweight Champion. The New Day will give Ziggler, Owens and Zayn a free preview of Stomping Grounds tonight. Because, New Day Rocks!
