Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw.
We are in London, England and your announcers are Michael Cole, Renee Young, and Corey Graves.
Miz makes his way to the ring for MizTV.
Miz welcomes us and he reminds us that Sunday is Money in the Bank. He reminds people that he has won Money in the Bank and he has cashed in and it changed his career. He says that one man and one woman will see that happen on Sunday. Miz mentions his opponent on Sunday, Shane McMahon. Sunday, they will be locked inside a steel cage and as much as he wants to talk about himself, he wants to talk about his guest.
He brings out Roman Reigns.
Miz asks Roman what can we expect from him on Sunday against Elias.
Roman says Elias is a lot of things. He is young, strong, and charismatic. Roman says if you want a karaoke performer or a wedding singer, you can walk with Elias. He has not won any championships and on Sunday, he will bring the Big Fight.
Miz says they are not usually on the same page but he mentions Roman’s role in the new Fast and Furious spinoff and he suggests a collaboration.
Roman tells Miz he sounds like the old Miz who wants to punch him in the mouth. Roman says he wanted to talk to the new Miz who stood up to the Authority and chased Shane around the building with a chair.
Roman says that is the Miz we all want to talk to after seeing the footage.
Miz says he has never been on the same page with Roman or the WWE Universe but it took Shane McMahon to do it. It is about earning respect from your peers and the audience. Miz says he has earned that over his thirteen years. Shane never earned that respect and is his daddy’s son. Miz says he might not be the strongest or the fastest, but he knows how to win. Shane has attacked his father and run from him at every turn. On Sunday, none of his power or privilege will matter because Shane will be stuck in a steel cage with him. There will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. You will regret what you did and you will go down faster than your dad did to a Superman punch.
Shane McMahon’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage.
Shane says it is fitting that you are talking about him and he reminds Roman and Miz that he is their boss. Shane says as of right now, MizTV is over.
