Up first, The Miz and Maryse make their way to the ring. It's time for Miz TV. Miz calls Ambrose a cheater from their last title match where Dean disqualified himself and was able to hold onto his title. If Dean tries to pull that this weekend, he will lose his title due to the matches stipulation. Miz's guests for tonight's Miz TV are Sheamus and Cesaro. The two have a steel cage match with the Hardy Boyz for the Raw Tag Team Titles at Extreme Rules. Miz says that they deserve to become championships. They earned a big moment at WrestleMania and the Hardy Boyz took it from them. Sheamus says the biggest shame was the crowd turning on them as soon as the Hardy's showed up. He says the fans don't know loyalty. Miz says that the Intercontinental Championship will be his. Ambrose interrupts him and he comes to the ring. Ambrose says he doesn't always make good decisions and he can't help but think that he needs to make them shut their mouths. Miz says Ambrose is outnumbered. Ambrose says he isn't stupid. Out come the Hardy Boyz! Fists are flying. Ambrose and Hardy's clear the ring.
