We are live on tape from Fayetteville, North Carolina and your announcers are Josh â€˜Flair Countryâ€™ Mathews and John â€˜Armstrongâ€™ Layfield.
We begin with Miz in the ring for MizTV. Miz says that there are some shocking incidents going on in the WWE. Did AJ and John Cena have an affair? Vickie Guerrero thinks so. At Hell in a Cell, Brad Maddox goes Rogue to help CM Punk retain the WWE Title against Ryback. Miz talks about his first guest and the dispute over which is more powerful, the Brogue Kick or the KO Punch. You might have missed Sheamus getting knocked out and losing the World Championship.
Miz brings out the FORMER World Champion Sheamus. Sheamus comes out and he is still in a good mood.
Miz brings up that it has been seven months since he has not had the World Title. Miz says that the World Title match was incredible, but he wonders how embarrassed Sheamus feels about being a loser after being knocked out by Big Show.

Miz says that he will lead his team to victory at the Survivor Series, just like he did at Wrestlemania and he will personally eliminate Kofi. He is the Miz and he is . . .
Interrupted one more time. This time it is the World Champion, the Big Show.
Show says that he does not want to hear Miz taking credit for Showâ€™s victory. He says that he has to side with Kofi and he thinks that there is something wrong with Miz. Why is Miz interviewing the â€˜formerâ€™ World Champion instead of the â€˜newâ€™ World Champion? Why is Miz asking Sheamus about being KOed instead of asking Show about what it is like to KO Sheamus.
Miz asks Show how it felt to knock out Sheamus. Show says that to describe the perfect euphoria of closing his hand into a fist.
Sheamus reminds Show that he hit Big Show with White Noise on Raw and what kind of euphoria did Show feel at that time.
Sheamus suggests that they do this right now.
