We start off with Triple H making his way to the ring. Triple H welcomes everyone to Smackdown. He says that he has heard all of the rumors and backstage buzz and the media buzz. He says that a lot of ugly words have been said about the last month like favoritism and abuse of power. That is utterly ridiculous. There are times when WWE Superstars are unable to accept their own failures and shortcomings.
They would rather blame management for their failure. The thing is that him and his wife are willing to accept that burden as the authority figures in the company. They cannot make everybody happy so they decide to do what is best for business.
Even when they do things like they did on Monday, they get criticism. They had an 11 on 3 elimination handicap match with eleven superstars against The Shield. Hunter says that is bad on their part?
We see highlights from the match.
Hunter says any angst in the locker room was settled there, but that wasn’t good enough. That decision was not made to quell an uprising, it was to do what was best for business.
Miz’ music plays and he makes his way to the stage and then to the ring.
Miz throws out a really and asks if Hunter really thinks that he has been fair and impartial.
Hunter asks Miz about coming out here to be fair and impartial after all of the opportunities given to him. He has been given opportunities and he has failed. Then he blames someone else. Hunter says that Miz asked for the opportunity to be in the ring with the Face of the WWE. He got to be in the ring with Randy Orton. Hunter says that Miz choked and we go to footage from last Monday.
Hunter asks if that was Management’s fault. Hunter says that is probably hard to swallow and must sting since it happened in front of his family. How does giving Miz the opportunity and failing on Triple H?
Hunter says that Miz was not ready to compete last week so he protected Miz. He was protecting Miz from himself because he would have gotten into the ring with Randy Orton and Hunter says that he does not know what Randy would have done to Miz. He gave Miz another opportunity. A platform to say what he wanted. He gave Miz an episode of MizTV with the Big Show. Miz squandered that too and we see footage from Monday night.
Miz says that all Hunter gave him was a set up. Hunter was the good cop and then the bad cop, his wife interrupted and had Big Show knock him out. He thanks Hunter for the opportunity.
Hunter says that his wife had every right to be in the ring because of what Miz said about his wife.
Miz says that he called Stephanie a ‘castrating witch’ but he should have changed the ‘w’ to a ‘b’.
Hunter says Miz runs his mouth and he cannot back it up. Hunter says that his wife was justified for what she did. Tempers ran hot and everyone was upset. After the beating in front of his mom and dad, he knows why Miz was upset. Maybe Miz said something he shouldn’t have said. Maybe his wife did something that she might have regretted.
Hunter says that he wants to give Miz another chance. Everything else is water under the bridge.
Hunter says that Miz is feeling fine tonight, so he will give Miz the opportunity he could not take on Monday. He will give Miz a match against Randy Orton for a chance at retribution or revenge.
Miz accepts the match.
Hunter asks if he could get his parents to Milwaukee in time for the match so they can see him get retribution. Hunter tells Miz to get changed for his opportunity.
