Last week, The Miz received the news that he would be heading to SmackDown LIVE in the 2018 Superstar Shake-up. Under normal circumstances, that probably would have been good news. Unfortunately for The Awesome One, his return to Team Blue was requested by Daniel Bryan. There is a long history between the two, dating back to Season 1 of NXT in 2010, but the bad blood in recent years can be traced back to The A-Listers first turn on SmackDown LIVE.

Bryans criticism sent The Awesome One flying off the handle in a rant about Bryan and his retirement that left Bryan so furious that he walked off the show. The Miz took things even further, mocking Bryan during his matches by using The Beards trademark kicks.
