Miz TV With Special Guests: Team Hogan and Team Flair 

Welcome to the most must see WWE talk show in history, Miz TV! This may be the most prestigious episode of Miz TV. Miz introduces the participants representing Team Hogan and Team Flair at WWE Crown Jewel. Well let me you something, brother. Hogan has the best HulkaManiac team ever. Whatcha gonna do when Team Hogan destroys you?Ric Flair says that there ‘s no love lost between them, but now you have The Big Dog. How will you two exist with your egos? Flair is tired of seeing Roman Reigns all the time. Flair is a leader of men. He led The Four Horsemen. Team Hogan is going down to Team Flair. WOOO!

Flair better check the history books because he’s never defeated Hulk Hogan. Team Flair will not win at WWE Crown Jewel. You can’t beat Team Hogan when he has people like Shorty G, Ali, Ricochet, Rusev, and Roman Reigns. Sami Zayn says that Shorty G could stand on Ali’s shoulders and still be half the man Shinsuke Nakamura is. That’s funny keep laughing. Gable has embraced who he is and that says something. Gable is proud of it and he’s proud to be on Team Hogan. He’ll silence the doubters at Crown Jewel. Ali says that Shorty doesn’t have to listen to Sami Zayn because he’s just a mouthpiece. Which is really ironic considering how bad his breath stinks.

King Corbin wants to know who Ali is and why he’s talking. You’re in the presence of a king. Corbin said that Crown Jewel was named in his honor. He will lead his team to victory. Meanwhile, Roman will continue to let people down. He’s a former champion, but this is Corbin’s Kingdom now. These people bow to him. Roman will bow to him. They don’t need a hero, they need a ruler and he will rule with an iron fist. Roman tells Corbin to shut up. Corbin isn’t a real king. That’s crown, cape and scepter. It’s entertaining when Corbin looks stupid. They don’t like when Corbin says stupid stuff. The only way to stop that is to punch him in the mouth.

Gable is ready to fight. Let’s have a preview of Crown Jewel tonight? Zayn tells Hogan to take it easy, brother. We appreciate the offer and they will take it under advisement. Nobody needs to do anything right now. How about we have a 6-Man Tag Team Match in the main event tonight? Hogan calls Nakamura a Young Boy. Zayn accepts the match, but Hogan didn’t read the fine print. Zayn tweaked his neck on the flight over here, so he’s on the Do Not Touch list. There’s somebody in the back he has a close personal relationship with and he will allow that person to take his spot in the match. It’s Cesaro. That leads us to a massive pier six brawl to close the segment.

– Braun Strowman/Tyson Fury Video Package.

Second Match: Lacey Evans vs. Camron Connors 

Lacey Evans says that she has too much respect for herself as a woman and athlete to entertain the idea of competing in the ring with the likes of this nasty thing. I know what you’re thinking. Connors is scared to death. How bad will Lacey Evans beat me up? Connors has nothing to worry about. Evans is going to leave this ring and keep walking. After all these cloud hoppers don’t deserve to watch her in action. Referee, start this match. Evans struts around the ringside area. Evans gets back in the ring at the count of nine. Evans connects with The Woman’s Right to pickup the victory.

Winner: Lacey Evans via Pinfall 

The Firefly Fun House Returns 

Third Match: Drew Gulak vs. Kalisto w/The Lucha House Party 

Before we begin, allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is Drew Gulak and i’m a former WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion. Kalisto if you’d indulge me for a moment, I would like to take this opportunity to finish my original Powerpoint Presentation. Last week we saw ways in which Braun Strowman can lose his match against Tyson Fury. As you can see, Tyson Fury is using his power to knockout The Monster Among Men. How about Slide #2? Kalisto dropkicks Gulak. Kalisto repeatedly kicks the left hamstring of Gulak. Kalisto with a straight right hand. Gulak reverses out of the irish whip from Kalisto.

Braun Strowman walks down to the ring. Kalisto plants Gulak with The Salida Del Sol to pickup the victory. After the match, Strowman delivers Two Running PowerSlams for good measure. You see this? This is what happens when you disrespect Strowman. At least Gulak deserves to be in this ring unlike Tyson Fury. At WWE Crown Jewel, Strowman is going to send Fury’s ass back to where he belongs when he gets these hands.

Winner: Kalisto via Pinfall 

Daniel Bryan, Sami Zayn, and Shinsuke Nakamura In-Ring Segment 

Bryan is getting interviewed by Michael Cole. It’s been a tumultuous couple months for Daniel Bryan. Bryan was accused of many indecent and heinous acts. Erick Rowan turn his back on Bryan and was drafted to Monday Night Raw. Speaking of the draft, it’s been a fresh start for just about everyone, including Daniel Bryan. Last week on SmackDown, Bryan defeated Shinsuke Nakamura. The area erupted in YES! Chants. However, Bryan was reluctant to participate in the chant. Is the YES! Movement back? Sami Zayn and Shinsuke Nakamura joins the conversation.

Please, the first thing I would like to say before we go any further, Nakamura holds no ill feelings to the fact that Daniel Bryan pinned him last week. Before you answer Michael Cole’s ridiculous question, we see a clip of Bryan putting an end to the YES! Movement last November on SmackDown. The crowd booed Bryan because they didn’t like the New Daniel Bryan. Zayn has known Bryan for a very long time. The New Daniel Bryan is the real Daniel Bryan. Every word Bryan said was the truth. He’s a good and honorable man while these people are not good and they have no honor. Bryan really cares about the planet and the environment.

These people don’t care about anybody but themselves. That’s the truth. The truth is that Bryan is too good for these people. He has nothing in common with these people. Bryan does have a lot in common with Sami Zayn and Shinsuke Nakamura. Zayn’s a vegan. He’s disgusted by factory farming. Nakamura cares about the oceans. What links the three of them together is that they are three true in-ring artists. When it comes to the ring, Bryan may be the greatest artist to ever do this. It seems that right now, Bryan’s career is at a crossroads.

There are two directions Bryan can go. He can go backwards and revive The Yes Movement so these nitwits can chant YES! He can go back in time, or he can move forward and join them. Zayn promises Bryan that they can take him to new heights that were not imagined. They could make the world a better place. They can offer Bryan more than these people ever could. Does Bryan want to move backwards with them or does he want to move forward with us? Bryan heads to the backstage area.
