By Richard Trionfo on 2016-02-08 23:10:49
We are back and it is now an Eight Man Tag Match with the Dudleys and Usos versus The New Day and a partner of their choosing.

Miz is in the ring for MizTV as he introduces everyone. Miz wants to address something before he brings out his guest. Miz says that this is a place where people get things off their chests. It is a place where everyone should feel awesome. Last week it was none of them when his guest was AJ Styles.

We see what happened last week with AJ and Miz.

Miz says that was disgusting. He offered to take that redneck rookie to the red carpet and that is the thanks he gets? He thought it was an episode of Swerved. Miz says that AJ Styles needs to listen to him. Look at what he did for Daniel Bryan. Miz points out that he main evented Wrestlemania.

Chris Jericho's music and pyro interrupt Miz.

Chris says they got some crazy people here tonight. Chris says it was a tremendous introduction but you did not mention his name or anything he has done.

Miz starts to speak but Chris tells Miz to SHUT THE HELL UP. Chris says they have not been waiting and waiting. They do not want to see MizTV. They want to see the Highlight Reel. Chris calls for the Jeritron to be called down and the furniture is removed and replaced for Jericho.

Chris welcomes everyone to the Highlight Reel.

Miz says that he is not Jericho's guest. This is his show. This is not right. None of this is right.

Chris tells Miz he is correct. It is not right. Something is missing. Jericho wants his potted plant and stool from when Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns were guests in Tampa. Chris wants to introduce his guest. Miz had a really rough week. He suffered two losses. First, he lost to AJ Styles. Then he lost his teeth when AJ kicked them out of his head.

We go to footage from Smackdown.

Chris tells Miz he looked stupid, but Miz points out he is not Sheamus. Miz asks if you know how much the Moneymaker costs. He got two veneers and they were ten thousand each. Miz points out that he had a meeting with Steven Spielberg and they got him fixed up in time so the WWE did not lose their matinee idol.

Chris laughs and he talks about the song 'All I want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth'.

Miz tells everyone to be quiet. Miz asks if everyone thinks it is funny and the crowd starts to Yes.

Miz says what he thinks is funny is the fact that he wasn't the only one upstaged by the Phenomenal One. Miz shows a clip of Styles beating Jericho on his Raw debut.

Miz says Styles may have been a big fish in a small pond but that fish beat Chris Jericho on his Raw debut. Miz says he knows that is eating Chris alive.

Chris says it is eating him alive. He has not stopped thinking about it for two weeks. We know AJ Styles is good, but is he great. Does he have what it takes to beat Chris Jericho twice? We will find out on Smackdown. Chris says that he is the best in the world at what he does.

AJ Styles' music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Miz attacks Jericho and sends him into the corner. Miz kicks Jericho and then Styles gets in the ring and he punches Miz and Jericho with a clothesline to Miz.

Styles and Jericho have a staredown and then they kick Miz and send him to the floor.

Styles and Jericho have some words between themselves and Styles has his hand slapped away by Jericho. Styles hits Jericho and Jericho is pulled to the floor by Miz but Miz is sent over the announce table.

Dean Ambrose is pacing in the back and something involving him is next?

Roman tells Dean to give him hell and save him some.

Just like last night, millions of people watched the Broncos take down the Panthers. The top trending topic will be how the Florida Gator gets defeated by the Radical Mongoose.
