-Miz TV starts the show as The Miz comes out and introduces the Smackdown Live tag team champions, the Bludgeon Brothers. Miz says that they have something in common, saying that they showed how easy it was to dismantle Daniel Bryan. Miz asks them why they attacked Daniel last week before showing a video from last week where Daniel said that he was ready to take on anyone on the brand before we see how he came out to the ring last week for the gauntlet match right after the Smackdown! Tag Team Title match. Miz says that he disrespected them and that Daniel is a glory hound and that Daniel is the villain in what he calls "the movie". Miz mocks the Brothers before Daniel Bryan interrupts them and says that he isn't afraid of the three of them before Harper says he'll learn tonight as we go to commercial.
