WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: NAKAMURA HAS NEW MUSIC, THE USOS ADD A DANCE PARTY TO THEIR MATCHES, A VISITOR FROM RAW SENDS A MESSAGE TO JEFF HARDY, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-04-24 21:59:00

We are in Louisville, Kentucky and your announcers are Corey Graves, Tom Phillips, and Byron Saxton.

We begin with the graphic in memory of Bruno Sammartino.

The Miz makes his way to the ring for the return of MizTV to Smackdown.

Miz puts the hand up and he asks everyone if they know what it means and he suggests that they do it.

Miz welcomes everyone to MizTV and he says it is the A Show.  Miz says there is something missing and that is a title.  A title that was relinquished just three years ago by his guest and a title that he made relevant again.  He will win it on Friday for the ninth time defeating Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, and Samoa Joe.  Miz says it is the most coveted title in the WWE.  It is the Intercontinental Championship.  That is in three days, but this is now.

Now is the moment that the world has been waiting for.  Miz says his guest threatened to punch him in the face last week.  He is a man who holds a grudge from years ago on Talking Smack, a show that got cancelled after he left Smackdown.  He is angry because he told the truth to his face.  He is a man who demanded that Miz come to Smackdown to confront him.  He is a man who wants to get his hands on him so badly he can taste it.  Miz says he is surprised because it was a month ago that he welcomed his daughter into the world.  He says when his daughter looked into his eyes, Miz says he knew he had to be a better man.  All of the anger and bitterness he had for Daniel Bryan melted away.  MIz says he is surprised that Daniel did not feel that way when Daniel saw his daughter.  They are both reality television stars.

Miz says Daniel and he are in ring technicians.  Miz says when he became a father, he knew he had to change.  Miz tells Daniel if he still wants to punch him in the face, he should come out and punch him in the face.

Daniel does not come to the ring.

Instead Colin Cassady makes his way to the ring and he is wearing a suit and walks with his fist up.

Miz asks Colin if he can help him. 

Colin says it looks like Miz doesn't have a guest so he can interview him.

Miz says he was supposed to interview Daniel Bryan but Colin says no one cares about Daniel Bryan.  He mocks the people who talked about Daniel's injury but Colin says no one cared while he rehabbed his injury.  Everyone talks about Daniel Bryan.  No one was talking about him.  He is living in the shadow of that ordinary little man.

Miz says he understands that Colin is upset and he says that he does not need Colin's help with Daniel Bryan.

Colin says that it is not all about him.

Miz asks Colin who does he think he is.  Miz says he is a Grand Slam winner and a first ballot Hall of Famer.  He starred in The Marine 6 and he main evented Wrestlemania.  What has Colin done other than hobble around on his injured knee?

Colin suggests that he shut Miz' mouth right now.

Miz says this isn't about them.  It is about Daniel Bryan.

Colin says it is about Daniel Bryan.  He is an average Joe who looks like he should be laying tile in his kitchen or picking up his trash.  Colin mocks Daniel and he says that you are never going to achieve your dreams because they are unobtainables.  He says that you are all Joe Schmoes.  Colin says he knows what it was like to be Daniel Bryan.  Until he was 16, he was a little guy.  He was bullied and got pushed around.  Colin says he got sick of being beaten up and he grew and grew until he was seven feet tall.  Colin says he went back to the people who pushed him around and beat them up.

Colin says that Daniel reminds him of who he was and he hated it.  Colin says he did not have to work the bingo halls or the indie scene.  He did not have to go to Japan or Europe.  He says he did not have to go there because he is tall and good looking.  That makes him a star and that makes him money.  He still lives in the shadow of Daniel Bryan, but not for long.  Colin says he is going to make sure Daniel Bryan is going to go back where he belongs.  Back on the shelf, battered, bruised, and retired.  He will never cast a shadow over anyone else again.

Colin throws the mic and leaves the ring.

Becky Lynch and Asuka walk in the back and we see Daniel Bryan down in the back.  Becky and Asuka go to check on Daniel.

We are back and Tom mentions that Daniel Bryan is being taken to the medical office.

Billie Kay and Peyton Royce are in the ring and they talk about how good they look in the ring.  Peyton says they are so hot and she says the camera loves Billie and Billie says the camera loves Peyton.  Peyton does her Becky Lynch impression.  Billie mentions that Becky is teaming with Asuka.  Peyton asks for a fact check on the Empress of Tomorrow.  Billie says if Charlotte Flair ended Asuka's streak and they helped end Charlotte's title reign, they are better than Asuka.  Peyton says it is science. 

Billie says instead of the Empress of Tomorrow, it is the Empress of Yesterday.  Peyton says they are the future, and . . . 

They are interrupted by Becky Lynch's music.
