By Richard Trionfo on 2018-03-26 23:02:00

We are back and Miz is in the ring with Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas.

Miz tells everyone that he lives in LA in response to the 'welcome home' chants.  Miz says before he brings out his guests, he has some personal issues to deal with.  Some people like to get personal things in private and he wants to be open and honest.  He asks Bo and Curtis how the Miztourage thing is going.  He says their talents are being showcased on Raw each week.  You are both happy and that is great, but he is not.

Less than a year ago, you were swimming in a pool of mediocrity.  You have failed him and Miz says if he wanted failure, he never would have gone to LA and he would have stayed in Cleveland.

Curtis says you can count on him.

Miz says he has been left down on the mat for the last two weeks because they have let him down.

Bo says they are doing the best they can.

Miz tells Bo he can BOlieve back to catering.

Seth Rollins' music interrupts and he makes his way to the ring.

Seth says he normally is not a fan of MizTV but this is some great stuff.  The MizTourage hashing out their problems.  Seth says he doesn't mean to interrupt but he will stand here and watch.

Miz says Seth did interrupt.  The only problem they have is Seth. 

Seth says if he is out here, then he can help.  Seth says he will mediate.  The MizTourage feels a little underappreciated.  When was the last time you looked them in the eyes and said thank you? 

Miz asks Seth if he is kidding.

Seth says he is not kidding.  He says Miz should be thanking them every chance he can.  Without them, you wouldn't be the Intercontinental Champion.  Seth suggests a MizTourage chant and Miz reminds everyone what to do when his hand goes up.

Miz says they appreciate each other.  Miz says he would still be Intercontinental Champion without them.

Bo says Miz is a phony A Lister who can't fight.

Seth wants Bo to say it a little louder and Miz wants to know what Bo just said.

Before Bo can respond, Finn Balor makes his way to the ring.

Finn apologizes for interrupting but he is a guest.  He says that Miz needs his help now.  People want to know what Bo just said.

Finn says sometimes it is hard to hear what people say when you are in the ring, but he heard it crystal clear.  Bo said that the Miz was the biggest jerk he ever met.

Bo says he did not call Miz a jerk.

Finn tells Miz it is nothing to worry about.  Bo tells Finn what he said.

Miz tells Bo to say that again.  Miz pie faces Bo when he speaks.

Curtis has to hold Bo back.  Miz wants to fire Bo up.  They are less than two weeks away and you are letting them play us and try to divide them?  The only thing that matters is the Intercontinental Champion.  Miz says he is 34 days away from being the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion.  Better than Randy Savage.  Better than Shawn Michaels.  Better than Mr. Perfect.

Miz apologizes when Curtis realizes that Miz said something bad about his father.

Seth and Finn try to stir the pot while Miz tries to calm them down.

Miz tells everyone that MizTV is canceled. 

Bo blocks Miz' exit from the ring.  Curtis does the same thing while Finn and Seth laugh.  Miz tries to apologize and he says nobody wants to see this.  Miz backs into Seth and Finn who have moved into the center of the ring.  

Bo and Curtis punch . . . Balor and Rollins and then they kick and punch Seth and Finn while Miz starts to smile at the execution of a perfectly laid out plan.  Bo and Curtis pick up Balor but Gallows and Anderson come to the ring to take care of Axel and Dallas as they go up the ramp.

Miz looks up the ramp and then he sees Balor down in the ring and Miz misses with the belt and Balor hits Slingblade.  Rollins sets up and he goes for Black Out but Miz moves.

Rollins has some words for Miz and Balor picks up the Intercontinental Title belt.  Rolilns takes the belt from Balor.

We are back and Kane is in a boiler room.  He tells John Cena there are certain demons you don't want to call out.  Certain demons that want to rest in peace.  You must pay for your indiscretions.  You are not going to Wrestlemania, tonight you are going straight to hell.

We are back and Michael Cole asks what winning the Women's Battle Royal at Wrestlemania means for the winner.  

We take a look at the issues between Bayley and Sasha Banks.

Sasha says she is the boss and she does what she wants for her career.  Sasha says everyone thinks Bayley is a loser.  Bayley says that Sasha screws her over since Sasha knows she can't beat her.  Sasha points out she is a four time Women's champion.  Bayley asks her how long she kept the title and Sasha grabs her by the hair as Bayley starts to walk away.   Officials arrive to try to separate them.

We go to commercial.

Sheamus says everyone thinks you are so tough pushing over trucks but they have figured him out.  You scare people when your music plays.  Sheamus says there will be no surprises at Wrestlemania so they want to know his partner at Wrestlemania so they can prepare.

Braun asks if the two whiny babies want to know who his partner is.  All you have to do is get in this ring and beat him.

Sheamus wants to know how is that fair so they want an answer right now.

We are back and Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring as he encourages the crowd to tell him he sucks.

Kurt says we are two weeks away from Wrestlemania which means we are two weeks away from Stephanie McMahon and Triple H standing across the ring from him and his partner, Ronda Rousey.

Ronda makes her way to the ring.

Kurt says he knows that Wrestlemania is the toughest stage to debut on but he says that after seeing her train, he says she is ready for Wrestlemania.  Triple H and Stephanie write and make the rules.  They will be ready for everything.  It will be fun, but it won't be easy.

Ronda says she didn't come here for easy.  She came here to earn everything.  She says Stephanie can talk tough, but she is Limousine tough and training tough.  She will get everything she deserves.  That will be her pulling her arm out of its socket.

Paige's music plays and she comes out with Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose.  Paige says you will be sabotaged by not having friends.  She introduces Ronda to them and they want to welcome her to Raw.  Paige says this is their is their show and the ring is her house.  

Paige says you grew up watching the WWE and that is great.  You can get lost in the shuffle and people will take advantage of you.  They are here if Ronda needs back up. 

Ronda thanks them for being here, but she has an Olympic Gold Medalist at her six o'clock.

Paige says that Kurt is a Hall of Famer, but if you thought Kurt has your back, you wouldn't be the enemy of Triple H and Stephanie.  She says she understands the pressure and Ronda does not have to go out there alone.  Ronda can be the fourth member of Absolution.

Ronda thinks about it and thanks Paige for the offer but she says no.

Paige says she understands Ronda's choice, but it is not a good one.  You could have had some best friends, but you made some worst enemies.

Sonya and Mandy get in the ring and Kurt stops Mandy but Sonya touches Ronda on her shoulder and Ronda punches Sonya.  Ronda blocks a kick from Mandy and hits an exploder that sends Mandy into Sonya.  Ronda puts Mandy in an arm bar and Kurt tells her to stop.  Ronda releases the hold and Mandy leaves.
