King Corbin, Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler Segment 

King Corbin: Before I begin, you need to pay respect to your king. You should be like these brave and wise superstars whose abilities on the level to pledge their loyalty to my kingdom. Now I want to talk to you all about one of the responsibilities it takes to be king and a great leader. That’s the ability to tell all of your loyal subjects the harsh truth even when they don’t want to hear it, but when it’s necessary to hear the truth. Now I came out here last week and I told the WWE Universe that their hero Roman Reigns wasn’t the man he used to be.

He’s still a WWE all-time great, but he’s just a shell of the man he once was. Roman refuses to believe that, just like most of you. I proved that it’s no longer Roman Reigns yard, it’s my kingdom. As your king, I declare by royal decree that I am now the team captain for SmackDown at Survivor Series in the battle against Raw and NXT. Now it’s clear that I don’t like any of my teammates, but there is two extremely weak links up there and tonight we right that wrong. I just hope that Roman Reigns is able to carry his weight because he’s clearly a step behind.

Dolph Ziggler: That’s true. That’s a great point your royal highness. Roman Reigns has been a step behind as he attempted to undermined your leadership every step of the way. Now the only reason why Short G and Mustafa Ali made it on to the team is because they’ve been running with Roman Reigns. Everybody knows that they don’t deserve it. It should’ve been us. Right?

Robert Roode: You’re absolutely right and tonight we rectify that mistake. We saw how our locker room leader, Roman Reigns, was doing things. Guys like Mustafa Ali and Shorty G were given participation trophies and handouts. Well that stuff isn’t gonna fly under King Corbin’s rule.

Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode: You’re damn right. Tonight, we do what we all know we were born to do. We beat up these two goofs G and Ali. Not only do we beat them, we take our rightful spot on Team SmackDown. You know that’s going to be absolutely, GLORIOUS !!!

King Corbin: To bear witness to this great victory, i’m going to invite the big down himself, down here right now. If we’re teammates at Survivor Series, we should be able to co-exist in this very ring right now. So don’t be embarrassed. Big Dog, come on down. Do you want to see The Big Dog?

An official Roman Reigns mascot walks down to the ring to close the segment. Corbin tells the mascot to bend his knee.

Miz TV With Special Guests: Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt 

The Miz: Welcome to the most must see WWE talk show in history, Miz TV. Boy have I looked forward to this one because I have material that I can sink my teeth into. Just to recap, Bray Wyatt won the Universal Championship from Seth Rollins at Crown Jewel and brought it to SmackDown. Then just last week, he shockingly and brutally attacked my guest and I’m gonna find out why. Ladies and gentlemen, please get out of your seats for Daniel Bryan. Daniel, I’m gonna cut right to the chase. Why did you think The Fiend attack you? Silent treatment. Look I understand we don’t see eye to eye. We don’t like each other, but you came on this show and it’s a fair and simple question. Why do you think out of all the WWE Superstars in that locker room, The Fiend chose you to attack?

You don’t want to tell me what you think. Well, let me tell you what I think. I think The Fiend sees that you’re mentally unstable. He sees that you’re not the same superstar you were 10 years ago. I think he sees that you’re not the leader of The Yes! Movement, anymore. I think he sees that you’re conflicted on who you are. You’re confused. You have no idea who you are. I don’t have any idea who you are. Nobody has any idea who you are. Who are you Daniel? Are you the ultimate underdog that begs and pleads the audience to chant yes, yes, yes? Are you The New Daniel Bryan? An environmentalist, who loves to tell everybody to recycle. The truth is that I think The Fiend sees that you’re washed up. I think he wants to be the one to end Daniel Bryan.

Daniel Bryan: I’ll talk about Bray in just a second, but the reason why I was quiet is because Miz TV sucks. Miz TV has always sucked. You’re right, I’m not the Daniel Bryan I was 10 years ago. I’m not the leader of The YES! Movement. Do you know what? Maybe I am washed up and for sure i’m mentally unstable, but there’s one thing that’s the same as it was before. Passion. The passion that lead me to overcome the odds to main event WrestleMania 30. The passion were I fought for over three years to get back in the ring. Shut your mouth. You don’t understand, they don’t understand the passion combine with mental instability.

Do you understand what i’m talking about? No you don’t. The mental instability that caused me to kill The Yes Movement when I could have  just rode that out for years. And that’s what you would have done. The mental instability that caused me to kick a man man in the balls in order to win the WWE Championship. You don’t understand the mental instability combine with this kind of passion, but Bray Wyatt, he does because he’s mentally unstable as well. We never seen anything like him. We don’t know if he’s Bray Wyatt or The Fiend or who’s controlling who. He’s unstable, mentally unstable, but so am I.

Bray Wyatt: Hi, Daniel. You know it’s very rude to speak about another person when they’re not present. Where are your manners? I know being confused is a very scary feeling, but maybe that’s why he did it. To scare you. Maybe he did it to remind you about what you did. You remember, don’t you? Cause I really think he does. Maybe he just wants to play with you. Yowie Wowie! Bray brings out the Universal Title. This is my favorite new toy. Do you want to come play? All you have to do is say that one magical word. Come on Daniel, just say it. I know you want to.

Daniel Bryan: NO!

Abbie The Witch: YES!

Daniel Bryan: NO!

Mercy The Buzzard: YES!

Daniel Bryan: NO!

Husky The Pig: YES!

Daniel Bryan: NO!

Rambling Rabbit: YES!

Daniel Bryan: No, I am not gonna go back there and play with you and your puppets cause I see what you’re trying to do. You’re trying to manipulate me. You’re trying to manipulate the people, but I’m not a puppet. Whether it was you, The Fiend or whoever it was that attacked me, it’s clear that you got a problem with me. So if you want to fight? Let’s fight. If we’re gonna do it, let’s do it for the Universal Championship. So Bray, what do you say?

Bray Wyatt: Oh Bryan, to that I say, YES!. Bray proceeds to do a yes chant to close the show.
