MIZ TV W. TEAM HELL NO
The Miz welcomes everyone to Miz TV and says everyone has been talking about the same thing, the premiere of Miz & Mrs, stating he will win an EMMY for the how. He also says some people are talking about the reunion of his guests tonight, who will be fighting for the Tag Team Championships on Sunday as he welcomes Team Hell No.
Miz wants to address the elephant in the room, that he beat Daniel Bryan in the gauntlet match and said he is here to be a professional and wants Bryan to do the same. Bryan says if Miz is asking if he will punch him in the face the answer… is seemingly yes until Kane speaks to him and Bryan says he will be professional.
The Miz then puts over Team Hell No for their past accomplishments, adding that he never expected to see this day, but asks if they are prepared to face one of their biggest ever challenges. Kane says they are well aware of what the Bludgeon Brothers are capable of, but he says they are not Team Hell No.
Miz says he agrees, saying if there is a team that can handle them it is definitely them. Miz then shows a video package recapping all the things that Bryan said Kane did to him last week, including a Tombstone to the steps. Bryan tells Miz to stop it, claiming he knows what he is trying to do, but it is not working, because he is The Miz and he is terrible at everything.
Bryan says the only thing Miz is worse at than stirring the pot, is wrestling. Miz says he is smarter than this, claiming that he knows this will implode as Kane will turn on him. Miz added that he has always wanted to end Daniel Bryan’s career since he came back, but instead he is hiding behind an old nostalgia act. Kane calms Bryan down until Miz takes another shot at Kane and he goes for a Chokeslam until the Bludgeon Brothers arrive on the scene.
The Bludgeon’s make their way to the ring but they are interrupted as well, by SAnitY … but the former NXT stars help the Bludgeon’s and begin attacking Team Hell No until… The New Day arrives! The entire ringside area is complete carnage as people brawl all around, with Killian Dain wiping out Daniel Bryan and Young does the same to Xavier Woods as the heels take control. WWE officials have now headed to the ring as they attempt to break things up here as SAnitY and The Bludgeon Brothers make their statements clear ahead of Sunday.
SHINSUKE NAKAMURA vs. AJ STYLES
Next up, it’s WrestleMania rematch time as Shinsuke Nakamura returns to WWE for the first time since his dog bite incident. Before the bell even rings for the match AJ Styles’ challenger, Rusev and Aiden English head to the ring.
Rusev says he doesn’t care what AJ does at Extreme Rules, it doesn’t matter, he is coming to destroy the house that AJ Styles built, which gains huge Rusev Day chants. He continues to say that when he wins the WWE Championship then he will celebrate on his holiday which will haunt AJ forever, Rusev Day.
After the distraction, Nakamura attempts to gain a quick advantage, but Styles quickly gets things on track by dropkicking Shinsuke out of the ring, right in front of Rusev. AJ quickly looked for a Phenomenal Forearm when Nakamura returned to the ring but Shinsuke managed to grab the ropes and create a whiplash effect as he threw Styles into the barricade.
Shinsuke then rocked AJ with several kicks and knees and attempted to hit the Kinshasa but AJ reversed it and hit Shinsuke with a big kick to the face, but Nakamura quickly turned things back around with a boot to the chest in the corner.
Shinsuke then tried several kicks to gain a pinfall but AJ kicked out at two. AJ then managed to avoid several quick shots, by hitting him with one of his own as he then dropped Shinsuke’s back onto his knee. Styles attempted a Styles Clash but Shinsuke reversed it well with a triangle choke and he finally escaped and taunted AJ with his “Come On” pose and threw him to the outside.
AJ then hit a massive Phenomenal Forearm to the outside but Aiden English then distracted him and attempted a Kinshasa though AJ moved and he hit Aiden English. With English taken out, Rusev decided to get involved and cause a DQ, setting up AJ for a Kinshasa but Jeff Hardy burst onto the scene to help out AJ.
Winner: AJ Styles (via DQ)
The numbers game may have been against him but Hardy manages to send both men to the outside before diving through the ropes to take out Rusev and Shinsuke. Paige then arrives and sets up a tag team match between the champions and the challengers, right now.
