–Reminder, I do not rate matches that are under three minutes long…
-Josh Matthews and JBL are the announce team.
-Miz TV kicks off the show this week, as Miz explains that he will use his rematch clause at the HIAC PPV to beat Kofi and win his title back. He then brought out his guests, the tag team champions, Kane and Daniel Bryan. They came out separately, which Miz mocked, and then said that Kane was the sane one of the team, and that Bryan was the weak link, and would be the one to cost them the titles at HIAC. Kane stood up for his partner, and said he had won championships with giants and dead men, so if Bryan is the problem, he’s the solution.
Bryan chimed in, noting that he wasn’t a problem, and that he would be the reason they win at HIAC. He said the Devil’s favorite demon was nothing without the world’s toughest vegan. Kane said that was like being the world’s tallest dwarf. Just as Bryan got worked up, and reminded everyone about beating Big Show in under a minute, the Big Show made his way out to the ring.
Show told Kane that even though they had a match on Monday, he had no issue with him. Show then added that he thought Bryan would have learned to keep his mouth shut after he beat him up last Monday, and then said after he KOs Sheamus at HIAC, nothing like Bryan beating him will happen again. He said he’d knock Bryan out if he ever mentioned 45 seconds again. He then decided to try and KO Bryan, but Kane stepped in and said that they could battle right now, and not wait for Monday.
Revolving door time as Dolph Ziggler came out to the ring, saying that he was the MITB holder, and that after Show and Sheamus beat the hell out of each other at the PPV, he would steal the show and become champion. He said if Bryan could do it anyone can. Everyone started yelling, and Booker T then came out. Miz cut him off saying he was so predictable, about to make Bryan and Kane vs. Dolph, Show and Miz. Booker said he wasn’t about to do that; instead he was about to make two matches. They are Bryan and Kane vs. Ziggler and Show, and The Miz vs… Randy Orton.
