Miz welcomes everyone and he says he has breaking news. We see that Daniel Bryan will face The Miz at Super Show Down and the winner will get to face the WWE Champion.

Miz says he has been saying it all along. Daniel Bryan is not on his level. The Miz is superior to Daniel Bryan. Don’t believe him? Miz beat him at SummerSlam and Hell in a Cell.

Miz kisses his guest before asking his first question. Miz says it is an honor to have Maryse on the show.

Miz says that Maryse has overcome stereotypes and given birth to the most perfect child on the planet? How hard was it to beat Brie?

Maryse says it was the easiest thing she has ever done. Maryse says she is a better athlete. Maryse says Motherhood can change you and she says Brie’s heart wasn’t into it. Miz says he does not think Brie’s heart is in it too. Miz says that Brie thought she was hitching her wagon on a big star. Maryse says that Brie was getting married to stay relevant. They came up against a team with real love and real talent. Miz asks Maryse what is next.

Maryse says that tonight is her last night on Smackdown.

Miz says they are celebrating because they know that Maryse is going back to be Mother of the Century. Five months after giving birth and this is what you look like. Miz says some of these people haven’t recovered from giving birth 30 years ago.

Miz says he will destroy Daniel Bryan right now. He tells Daniel to make his way to the ring.

Daniel Bryan’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage and ring.

Daniel says that you can talk about him all he wants, but when you talk about his wife, this is what you get.

Daniel makes his way to the ring and he punches Miz and then drop kicks Miz into Maryse and Maryse goes down.

An official calls for help from the back while Daniel is in shock at what he did. Daniel apologizes to Maryse while Miz gets some water.

Maryse turns around and she starts to laugh at Daniel and she gets back to her feet. Miz goes for a Skull Crushing Finale but Daniel escapes. Miz knocks Maryse off the apron and then Daniel clotheslines Miz over the top rope to the floor.
