Smackdown Live: 8 pm EST
Show opens up and The Miz is in the ring for an edition of Miz TV. Miz says that all anyone has been talking about is the upcoming series Miz and Mrs. The crowd boos and he says they can boo but he’s going to win an Emmy for the show. Miz introduces his guests: Kane, Daniel Bryan – Team Hell No. Kane and Bryan make their entrances. Miz says he knows Bryan is upset that he beat him in the Gauntlet Match but all Miz asks is that Bryan act professional out here. Bryan says if Miz is asking if he’s going to punch him in the face, the answer… is no.
Miz says Kane and Bryan’s reunion is like if Justin Timberlake decided to get back together with NSync. But are they ready for the Bludgeon Brothers. Kane says The BBs will never get back together, and he and Bryan are ready. Miz says he does think they are the team that can beat the BBs. Then Miz shows a video package of Team Hell No. The footage ends up being of the time when Bryan and Kane were feuding and doing horrible things to each other. When the clip finishes, Miz acts like that was an accident and says he’s going to fire the guy who ran that video.
Bryan says he sees what Miz is trying to do… the problem is that Miz is terrible at everything. Even stirring the pot. The only thing Miz is worse at than stirring the pot, is wrestling. Miz says he doesn’t just think Team Hell No is going to implode, he KNOWS it is. And Miz really just wants to wrestle Bryan and wants to be the one to end his career. But Bryan hides behind this Big Red Machine because he knows he can’t hang with The Miz anymore. Bryan is past his prime and Miz is now.
Bryan starts to heat up and Kane backs him up and calms him down. Miz takes a stab at Bryan, saying that he’s hiding behind his demon one more time… Suddenly Kane turns and grabs Miz by the throat. but then the Bludgeon Brothers’ music hits and they start walking out to the ring. Before they can reach the ring, SAnitY’s music hits and they appear in the ring and start attacking Team Hell No. A brawl breaks out involving everyone out there, and then New Day joins the fray.
The brawl goes on and on and it’s pandemonium out there. SAnitY ends up dominating in the ring, as all three are standing dishing out beatings to Team Hell No and New Day Members. The BBs are outside dishing out beatings of there own. The BBs and SAnitY have formed some sort of alliance. Officials finally run out and start to tend to the wreckage.
