Miz TV With Special Guest: Otis Dozovic 

The Miz: Welcome to the most must see WWE talk show in history. Welcome to Miz TV. Thanks, John, Miz TV. Thank you, that’s great. Are you done? Have a seat. Where else would you sit?

Otis Dozovic: God, I think i’ll stand.

The Miz: Oh, okay. You know, I got to congratulate you for winning the Money In The Bank Contract. Congratulations, this must be the most important victory that you ever had.

Otis Dozovic: Oh, yes, Miz. In my career, this is the biggest win. But in my life, the biggest win, was winning the heart of my beautiful peach, Mandy Rose.

The Miz: Well isn’t that sweet.

John Morrison: Yeah, man, I gotta ask, how did you pull that off? Did she feel bad for you? Are you that good in the sack? Phew, you must be packing some serious meat in the briefcase. What do you got in that briefcase?

Otis Dozovic: I got the contract. And some rolaes, some Gas-X, I got a bratwurst here just in case I get hungry, later.

The Miz: That’s what I thought. You know, I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that you won, considering last week, you couldn’t even climb a ladder.

Otis Dozovic: Some things in life crack up, but not me, that’s why I won Mr. Money In The Bank, YEAH!

The Miz: Speaking of your life, let’s delve into how you came to be this, shall we? There he is, Baby Otis, looking more like, Baby Yoda.

John Morrison: He looks like he ate Baby Yoda.

The Miz: How much did you weigh when you were born?

Otis Dozovic: You know, 12 pounds, 4 pounces, I was the biggest baby to ever come out of my mother.

The Miz: My good, your poor, poor mother. Could you imagine Otis and Mandy Rose having a kid, what would that look like?

John Morrison: Are you pregnant?

The Miz: John, he’s a man.

John Morrison: It’s 2020, anything is possible. He looks like he’s about to give birth to a roast turkey. Maybe he should do what Becky Lynch did, and relinquish the briefcase.

The Miz: That would be the responsible thing to do.

Otis Dozovic: No, I’m not letting go of this, baby. My mother wouldn’t allow it, it’s saying here because she was an Otis fan since day one.

The Miz: Well, that makes one of us. Let’s take a look, I mean, look at the happiness between you two.

Otis Dozovic: Yeah, I grew up with a learning disability. So school didn’t really make sense to me, but my mother, she helped me and maintain my grades, so I can play sports, especially wrestling, because that made sense to me.

The Miz: Well, nothing about this next picture makes sense to me.

Otis Dozovic: Oh, YEAH, look at the quads and the biceps, baby.

John Morrison: Did your learning disability keep you from learning how to put clothes on?

Otis Dozovic: Hey, Johnny, if you got it, you might as well flaunt it.

The Miz: You know what? I can’t do this anymore, I can’t take you seriously. I mean, you’re Mr. Money In The Bank. When I was Mr. Money In The Bank, I used it as a platform to launch me into superstardom, you’re using it as a freaking lunch box. I mean, I can’t believe that this clumsy, sweaty, stuttering, muttering, mama’s boy bafoon is Mr. Money In The Bank, and he got the girl, too?

Otis Dozovic: I’m sensing a little bit of a problem here.

The Miz: A problem? Yes, you’re the problem, you didn’t even climb the ladder, it just fumbled into your hands, and fell right into your hands. I mean, look at you, you’re one step away from being Universal Champion, this is one step away from becoming the face of SmackDown. You know what? I can’t even take it, you know what? Get Tucker out here, we’re having a tag team match tonight.

Otis Dozovic: Tucker can’t make it tonight, he got a case of the dysenberry in the Oregon Trail.

The Miz: My god, you can’t even make a tag team match right. You know what? Find a partner, anyone, I don’t even care, anyone that wants to tag with the human version of Shrek, anyone at all. And you know what? We’ll teach you tonight how to be a champion. You have to the end of the show to find someone, good luck.

Charlotte Flair, Bayley, and Sasha Banks Segment 

Charlotte Flair: So here I am on Friday Night SmackDown, being the hardest working woman in the industry. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Charlotte, how is it possible that you’re working all three brands? Well, the answer is simple, the numbers were crunched, the conclusion was clear, people want more Charlotte Flair. So, of course Fox used the brand to brand invitational to have me here tonight. I mean, I’m 5’10, i’m blonde, i’m a superior athlete, I know i’m forgetting something, oh, and my last name is Flair. Not to mention that I won five of my twelve titles reigns here on SmackDown, I mean, I’m actually surprised there’s not a giant picture hanging right here of me to inspire all of the competitors that step through these ropes. The Greatest. The Queen. Charlotte Flair.

Bayley: Charlotte Flair, oh my god, I would say that it’s nice to see you, but i’m a role model now, and you know, I don’t lie. Well, I guess the FOX executives, you know, obviously got a thing for blondes or they’re like all the other sheep out there, they just go crazy because you’re Ric Flair’s daughter, right? WOOOO! Come on, Michael, WOOO!

Charlotte Flair: You done?

Bayley: No, actually I got more to say, you know, because I was sitting back there, and I was listening to you blab on about your resume like you always do. And I was like, damn, when is the last time I saw Charlotte Flair? Do you remember? Sasha Banks.

Sasha Banks: The last time we saw Charlotte Flair, you defeated her and became a two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion.

Charlotte Flair: Fact, check. The first time you beat me, Bayley, I was unconscious. And well, the second time, took you a new makeover, and a bad, I mean, new hair cut to get the job done.

Bayley: Well, okay, look, you know better than anyone that a champion gotta do what a champion gotta do to get the job done, right? I know you’re just really mad because that night, the last time we saw each other, was when I became the first and only women’s grand slam champion in the WWE, boom, roasted. So, why don’t you go back to NXT, you know, give all the young hopefuls someone to look up to, you know, you’re the queen, dude.

Or you can go back to Monday Night Raw and you can beat Liv Morgan over and over again for all I care, because this is SmackDown, this is our show, the leaders, the role models, and I am the greatest, most dominant SmackDown Women’s Champion in history. You know how? Let me see, ding dong, I’ve beaten everyone. And when I say everyone, that includes you, boom, roasted, I can go on and on. So, thank you for coming, I’ll tell FOX it was a great time, but why don’t you get the hell out of our ring, right now.

Charlotte Flair: Bayley, some things never change. Sasha made you relevant when you were the NXT Women’s Champion. And now, she’s the only reason you’re the SmackDown Women’s Champion. My, oh my, we main evented the first raw together, we main evented the first pay-per-views together, you’re a six time women’s champion, a future hall of famer, the blue print, the standard. Are you telling me that you’re content standing in Bayley’s corner? That you’re content being an afterthought?

Bayley: Man, Charlotte, shut the hell up. An ego maniac like you would never understand a friendship like this, right?

Charlotte Flair: Can someone in the truck please cut Bayley’s mic, please? So, Ms Banks can’t talk?

Bayley: You know what? Enough talk, because I’m ready to fight, what do you say, huh? Champion vs. Champion.

Charlotte Flair: You know, now that I think about it, i’m sure FOX would love to have me on their show again. So, challenge accepted, but I have one question.

Bayley: What Charlotte? You’ve taken up too much time already.

Charlotte Flair: The question isn’t for you, so please, move out of my way, please. Sasha, now, I want you to think hard and long about this, are you your own woman or are you just going to be Bayley’s lackey and be happy being an afterthought? WOOO!
