Hosted by Josh Matthews, Michael Cole and John “Bradshaw” Layfield (JBL).
This week begins with…
MIZ TV with The Miz.
HIS GUESTS: Sheamus and Randy Orton.
The Miz wanted Sheamus and Randy Orton’s thought’s on teaming up with The Big Show the six-man tag team match at Wrestlemania against The Shield (Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns). Both Sheamus and Orton stated that they don’t trust Big Show, but Orton stated that he wants him on their side in their war against The Shield. Miz welcomed The Big Show, who stated that he doesn’t trust Sheamus and Orton. But he told them “If we work together, no one, not even The Shield, can stop us!”. Sheamus looked back at the matches he and Big Show had, and the both of them nearly came to blows.
Orton stopped them from fighting, to which Miz replied “Really? Really? Really? Randy Orton’s the voice of reason in this group?”. SmackDown! General Manager Booker T appeared and in an effort to make them work together, he booked Sheamus, Orton and Big Show into a six-man tag match against surprise opponents.
