By Richard Trionfo on 2018-08-28 21:56:00

We are back and Brie Bella makes her way to the ring with her husband Daniel Bryan.

Daniel says it is great to be in Toronto.  He mentions that Miz and Maryse mocked his retirement last week.  Miz said that he could really feel it last week, but he was acting.  Miz acts like he didn't cheat to win at SummerSlam.  Just like he acts that he has the hardest punch in WWE.  Miz is a very poor actor.  When he came out to punch Miz in the face, Miz couldn't act like a tough guy.  He pulled Maryse in his way and acted like a coward.  That was when Brie came to the ring.

Brie says she is not going to fight his battles, but a wife can only take so much.  Miz and Maryse always run their mouths.  Even though she was going to get her hands on Maryse, it felt good to punch Miz in the face.

Daniel says he is not acting when he says it was really hot.  He says that his wife is a diaper changing, face punching, hot Mama.

Daniel and Brie are interrupted by Andrade Almas and Zelina Vega.  They make their way to the ring.  

Vega says it is an honor to be standing in front of two legends.  Brie Bella and Andrade Almas.  Vega introduces themselves to Daniel Bryan.  She says she is the breathtaking, deal making, la muneta.  The business manager to El Idolo.  Since arriving on Smackdown, her client has put Sin Cara on the shelf, taken AJ Styles to his limit, and destroyed Rusev.  Vega says that the Miz has already outsmarted you, but it is time for Andrade Almas to outwrestle you.

Almas says you have your battle but the reality star is the only star in this ring.  It is him.

Daniel says he would love to make this match official, right now, but Daniel says he is no longer the Smackdown General Manager.  If only there was someone in the back who could make this match . . . 

No one comes out and Daniel says that was pretty embarrassing.

Paige makes her way onto the stage and she is out of breath.  Paige says her office is on the other side of the building and she is in heels.  Paige says she does not want to give the WWE Universe a match they don't want.  She asks them if they want to see Daniel Bryan versus Andrade Almas.  She calls for a referee.
