We begin with a scrolling message of the WWE sending out condolences for the people killed over the weekend in Texas.
We look back at last week when the garbage started to pile up around the Miz, Curtis Axel, and Bo Dallas. Then we see what happened at the end of the night when Braun Strowman rose through the garbage like a modern day Terminator.
We are in Manchester, United Kingdom and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.
Miz is in the ring with Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas for MizTV. Miz says he has a message for his opponent at Survivor Series, Baron Corbin. Miz says they have been going back and forth on social media. He said that he would knock Baron’s teeth down his throat if he talks about his pregnant wife. Then Corbin talks about not on his wife, but his unborn daughter. Corbin said that Miz would be calling him ‘daddy’ after the match.
Miz says that Corbin better be ready to step up to the plate because this is not the independent scene or NXT. Miz says he deserves respect. You might be the bathroom break of Smackdown, but he is the entire show on Raw. He will beat Baron so badly that he will make Baron and his title relevant.
Miz brings out his guest, Kurt Angle.
Angle tells Miz he has Angle’s full support in the match with Corbin. Miz can’t say the same for Angle. Angle brings up how he can still go and how Miz should know first-hand after the recent WWE TLC pay-per-view. Miz shows us video of RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon threatening Angle with his job if he doesn’t produce results at Survivor Series as Team Captain. Angle says he’s not going anywhere. He hypes the RAW 25th Anniversary episode in January. He goes on and brings up SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon, who has an inferior complex because they will always be the B-show. Angle says they will prove that at Survivor Series. Miz reminds Angle of the “Under Siege” attack from two weeks ago and shows us a replay on the big screen. Miz asks Angle how he retaliated, then shows us video of SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan on the show last week, and his backstage attack from Kane. Miz says Angle locked Bryan in his office and ordered Kane to attack him. Miz says SmackDown won’t be happy about this and he wouldn’t be surprised if they attacked again tonight. Angle says they wouldn’t dare and he had nothing to do with the attack. Angle apologizes to Bryan and says he has nothing but respect for Bryan.
Miz goes on and brings up how Angle set them up to be attacked by Braun Strowman last week. Miz says he and Bo were lucky enough to escape but Axel wasn’t. Fans chant for Axel, who is wearing a neck brace tonight. Miz says Bryan doesn’t deserve an apology, Axel does. They have more words and more tension. Miz says if Angle had nothing to do with last week’s attack by Braun, then why did he put Braun on Team RAW the very next day? Angle says they had nothing to do with each other and Braun deserves to be on Team RAW. Angle says Braun is one hell of a negotiator because he had to promise Braun one thing. Miz wonders what that is. A match… against Miz. Fans pop. Miz drops to his knees and begs but Angle leaves as his music plays.
