WWE RAW REPORT: DID ANYTHING HAPPEN WITH THE MAIN EVENTERS AT FASTLANE?, MIZTV LEADS TO A MATCH ON SMACKDOWN, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-02-01 23:00:19
We are back and Miz is in the ring for MizTV.

Miz says that since his debut at the Royal Rumble, the WWE has been buzzing about his guest, AJ Styles. He is a man who has captivated audiences all over the world. Miz says he was meditating and he says that guests like AJ are why he provides a public service for people like AJ. Miz says that this is a forum for storytelling. AJ's story is phenomenal.

AJ makes his way to the ring.

Miz says that AJ finally made it. The WWE Universe wants to know who AJ Styles is. AJ says it is easy. Miz says that AJ is someone who was told that he did not have IT. You were the smallest of four brothers. You earned every morsel of respect. You tried out for the football team and you were classified as too small. You were told to take up other interests.

AJ was the first one in the gym and the last to leave. By the team he made it on the field he showed how good he is. He shows that it is not the size of the dog in the fight that is important.

He showed what he could do in the ring in holes in the wall towns like Tallahassee and Timbuktu. You saw that great white whale look more unobtainable. Through blood, sweat, and tears, you became an entrant in the Royal Rumble match. That moment of feeling must have felt like an accomplishment.

Miz says that questions remain. Doubts still linger. You lasted 28 minutes in the Royal Rumble. Then on Monday, you beat Chris Jericho. Where do you go from here?

Miz takes the mic from AJ and he says that AJ reminds him of his former protege Daniel Bryan. Daniel was short in stature. He was an indie darling. He was a wrassler. Daniel did nothing until he took Daniel under his wing. That was when he attained greatness. Miz says that people call him the Father of the Yes Movement. Miz says he wants to help and guide AJ. He wants to mentor AJ Styles to take him to levels he has never seen before. All you have to do is say yes.

Miz tells people to stop booing him and he mentions how he main evented Wrestlemania. AJ may have been a big fish in a small pond, but this ocean is full of sharks. Miz says the E is just as important as the W. Miz asks if you think a rookie redneck like AJ Styles can make it in the WWE without his guidance. There is no chance in hell.

Styles punches Miz and he punches Miz in the corner and he throws Miz around the ring. AJ with more punches and Miz goes to the floor and he leaves the ring.
