The Miz makes his entrance with The Miztourage. Miz puts his hand up and tells the crowd to keep their mouths shut. Miz tells them to go outside and look at the constellations because they look like the Intercontinental Championship. The stars have aligned and 2018 is the Year of The Miz. In his first match back at RAW 25, he won back his WWE Intercontinental Championship from Roman Reigns. That RAW was the highest rated RAW in three years because of him. The very next week, he defeated Roman Reigns again. Reigns is a world class athlete and one of the best in the WWE ring of all time. Reigns still couldn’t contend with the overwhelming tide of momentum that is him. Doug Peterson showed his match to the Eagles, which led them to the Super Bowl. The best is yet to come. Tonight, he will qualify for the Elimination Chamber and go on to face Brock Lesnar (Miz does a good Paul Heyman impression). At WrestleMania, the cameras will be rolling for his show “Miz and Misses.” His daughter will be born just in time to see her father win the Universal Championship.

Apollo Crews makes his entrance with Titus Worldwide.
