WWE Smackdown kicks off with Miz TV. The host of the show
The Miz wearing his ring attire walks down to the ring. We
see clips of last Fridays show where The Miz lost to Kofi
Kingston and where Miz would attack Kofi afterwards.

The fans boo Miz as he welcomes everyone to Miz TV. He says
since last Friday and the incident with Kofi, people have
said that he has changed. He says he was having a bad day.
Weve all bad days and Kofi came up with all of his
positivity, trying to cheer him up and sometimes you just
dont want to smile. Sometimes when someone tells you to
smile, you just want to punch them in the face and thats
what he did.

Miz says he let his emotions and temper get the best of him
and he wants to say he is sorry. But he has been going
through a lot this month. The Fiend Bray Wyatt threatened
his daughter and when he went to take the one thing that he
cherishes the most, which is the Universal title, he failed.
But there has been one bright spot and that is the return of
someone that is like family to him. The biggest guest in Miz
TV history, John Morrison!

His music hits and Morrison dressed in dark jeans and a
jacket walks down with pyro going off behind him. The
Smackdown side panel during his entrance reminds us that he
is the winner of the 2003 WWE Tough Enough competition.

He gets in the ring as the fans chant Welcome back. Miz
says welcome back John Morrison! He says this is truly
awesome! John Morrison and The Miz, the greatest tag team of
the 21st century in the ring at the same time. Miz reminds
everyone that Morrison is a three time Intercontinental
champion and a 5 time tag team champion, two of which were
won alongside The Miz. We see a video package highlighting
John Morrisons WWE career.

Miz says from the bottom of my heart, welcome back. John
says it feels good to be back and he doesnt know what to
say. They were filming a chronicle leading up to his return,
at the Royal Rumble he will get a new entrance and it was
going to be epic. But when he saw what Miz was going through
and they had that talk, theres nothing more important than
being there for one of your best friends. He comes to
Smackdown last week and he is glad he did. Because they
talked again and he realized that hes disappointed.
Morrison says he is disappointed in the fans. His friend has
one bad day and they all chant you suck?

Morrison says he wants to talk about it. Miz has worked
harder for 15 years than anyone else on the roster. No one
thought he would make it but he worked his way into being a
WWE champion. And still hes only his dads fourth favorite
wrestler? Miz jokes and says fifth, he likes Kofi better.

John says but because Miz has a bad day, the fans ignore all
of that hard work because they dont get it. Miz does what
he does but for all the fans and they dont appreciate it.
Theyve never been in the ring. Morrison points to a fan and
says if we could imagine what they would say if that
douchebag got in the ring.

Big Es voice is heard and its The New Day who come out.
Out come the WWE Smackdown tag team champions. Kofi says he
has a question for The Miz. Who is trying to fool? Who? Is
he seriously trying to blame the WEW Universe for turning
their backs on him? Big E says they didnt buy that apology.
Hes not that good of an actor. He couldnt even get cast as
the bottom end of the human centipede. Kofi says he would
have respected him so much more if he would have stopped at
he had a bad day but instead he is complaining/.

Kofi says we all have bad days and he could have stopped
there. Miz says he respects the fact that Kofi was WWE
champion for 6 months. He held the most prestigious and
honorable title in all of WWE for six months. He respects
the six seconds it took him to lose it. He also respects the
fact that he chose to smile and ignore the fact that he
didnt go after the WWE championship. Thats what he

Kofi says again, it was 8 seconds, not six. And that was
clear. Whats also clear is that The Miz is changing. Yeah,
he sees it. Hes changing based on what they have said
tonight and last week. He is changing from cool Miz to
obnoxious, annoying Miz. And what that means is that the
people are correct when they say that he sucks. The fans
start to chant You suck.

the way that he feels about you Bryan. And he cant say he

naughty. Hes going to shoot straight. You are in a heap of
trouble at the Royal Rumble. At first, he just wanted you to

Here we go I see ya That feels good dont it? Here we
go Roman Reigns, winning the Rumble Not if Elias has
anything to say. See I got nothing against the big dog, hes
gonna lose like Randy, AJ and Ricochet. Lets not forget
about Erick Rowan Whatever is in that cage, it cant escape.
Its gotta be pretty horrifying to look at, could it be worse
than Lana and Lashleys sex tape? Probably not! Brock Lesnar
thinks the roster is unworthy, he made tat much clear, well
Brock its easy to hide behind that opinion, especially given
the fact that youre never here.

Well how does Elias compare? To a guy like Brock? But for
one Ive got a personality and unlike him, Im not afraid to
talk. So when I beat him for the title, oh Ill gladly show
Brock the door. But first when it comes to the Royal Rumble,
Im gonna show him what WWE stands for.

Mandy go and focus. In comes Mandy with the white box and

is because as champion, she is contractually obligated to do

remember but he outsmarted Wyatt. He wanted to change Bryan
but Bryan did change but he changed for the better. And now
Fiend wants to hurt him? He has no doubt that he will but he
cant break him. Not physically or mentally. He wants
everyone to think that he cant be hurt or beat. Bryan says
he knows that he knows that he can be beat and he can be
hurt. And he will do it and become Universal champion.

deal. He has been outnumbered, out jumped and embarrassed by
Corbin and his crew. Throughout his career, he always had
backup. But this time he didnt need the help of friends.
This time, he needed the help of his family.

out in a major way. He says 2020 is his year. He is going on

for a fifth time. And he is going to do that with the ones
by his side who have been there since day one. And that is

night Smackdown into Friday night lock down. Being away from
all this for 5 months was rough. But sitting at home
watching Roman defend himself against queen Corbin and his
kingdom was tough. They say nice touch with the dog food but
when they did that, they disrespected Roman. And when you
disrespect Roman, you disrespect the Usos. And when you
disrespect the Usos, you disrespect the family.

Out comes Baron Corbin with Dolph Ziggler. He comes out on
his thrown. Corbin says Roman will pawn the beating he
deserved on his family. Now he will take his family and
throw them under the bus because the big dog is scared. He
is scared to face him one on one, he will go hide in the
Royal Rumble match. But if anybody is winning the Rumble ,
it is the king.

Roman says he would love nothing more than to whoop Corbins
ass twice in one match. Before the Rumble match, they should
go one on one and during the Rumble, he will throw Corbin
over the top rope and point to the Wrestlemania sign
celebrating with his family. Corbin says he accepts his
challenge but after tonight, he wont have any family
because they are about to handle the big dogs two little
