Miz TV With Special Guest: John Morrison & The New Day 

The Miz: Welcome to the most must see WWE talk show in history, Miz TV! Since last Friday on SmackDown, and the incident with Kofi Kingston, people have said that i’ve changed and I am here to set the record straight. Look, I was having a bad day. We’ve all had bad days. Kofi came up with all of his positivity, he was trying to cheer me up and tell me to smile. Sometimes you just don’t want to smile. Sometimes was someone tells you to smile, you just want to punch them in the face and that’s exactly what I did.

Please don’t cheer that because I let my emotions get the best of me. I let my temper come through. I want to say from the bottom of my heart to Kofi Kingston, I am sorry. But I’ve been going through a lot this month. “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt threatened my daughter, my 18 month old daughter. When I went to take the one thing that he cherishes the most, the Universal Championship, I failed to gain the opportunity to do, so it’s been a bad month. However, there has been one bright spot and that is the return of someone that is like family to me. Someone I consider my brother.

Ladies and gentlemen, my guest tonight is the biggest guest in Miz TV history. Ladies and gentlemen, get up out of your seats for The Prince of Parkour, The Shaman of Sexy, John Morrison. Welcome back, John Morrison. Trust me, I over use this word a lot, but this is truly awesome. The Miz and John Morrison in the same WWE ring, the greatest tag team of the 21st century. In case anybody forgot about the 3X Intercontinental Champion, 5X Tag Team Champion. I’ve made a sizzle reel, let’s check it out. John Morrison, from the bottom of my heart, welcome back.

John Morrison: It feels so good to be back. I’ve missed it. To be honest, I don’t know what to say. They were filming a WWE Chronicle Documentary leading up to my return at Royal Rumble. I was going to get new music, a t-shirt, pulled to the ring by a bunch of Pomeranians, small dogs only because this show can only have one big dog. It was going to be epic, but when I saw what you were going through and we had that talk after was on The Bump, I’ve come to think that there’s nothing more important than being there for one of your best friends.

So I come to SmackDown last week and I’m glad I did because after what went down with Kofi, we talked again and I realized that I’m disappointed in you guys. My friend has one bad day and you all chant, you suck at the guy? I know you don’t want to talk about this, but I will. Miz has worked harder for 15 years than anybody else on the roster. Nobody thought he was going to make it as a WWE Superstar, but he worked his way into becoming a WWE Champion. And still, he’s only his dad fifth favorite wrestler.

Because Miz had a bad day and he’s going through things, you guys ignore all of that hard work. It’s because you don’t get it. Miz does what he does, not for his dad, not for him, but for all of you. You don’t appreciate it. You guys never been in a ring. You ever been in a ring? Could you imagine what you guys would chant if that turd in the front of row was gonna get in the ring? How about that douchebag next to him.

Kofi Kingston: I’m gonna throw these pancakes to you, but it’s hard to it with a microphone, okay we’ll get to it. Miz, I got a question for you, man. Who are you trying to fool? I mean are seriously trying to blame the WWE Universe for turning their backs on you?

Big E: Don’t think for a second that we bought that cockamamie apology. You’re not that good of an actor. In fact, you couldn’t even get casted as the back end of a human centipede. We saw the audition tapes, you nasty.

Kofi Kingston: Miz, I would have respected you so much more, if you would’ve just stopped at I had a bad day, but instead you come out here with this Miz face on.  Now, you’re pouting, crying, and whining man. Look, if you came out here and stopped at I had a bad day, you would be right, all of us have had bad days, that would have been respectable.

The Miz: That would’ve been respectful. You know what I respect? I respect the fact that you were the WWE Champion for six months. He held the most prestigious and honorable title in all of the WWE for six months. I also respect the six seconds it took you to lose it. I also respect the fact that you choose to smile and ignore the fact that you didn’t go after the WWE Championship, the thing you went for, that’s what I respect.

Kofi Kingston: Once again, it was eight seconds, not six okay? What’s also to clear to me is that, you Miz, you’re changing man. No, I see it. You’re changing based on what you guys have said here tonight with these back handed comments you made about these people and what you did to me last week. You are changing from cool Miz to annoying and obnoxious Miz. And what that means is that the people are correct, 100 percent when they say, you suck.
