We see Team SmackDown Live’s male team sitting backstage. The Miz walks in and he says he could give them a pep talk that would guarantee a win, and one that would heal the world. However, he shouldn’t be the one to do it, it should be the best in the world: Shane O’Mac. Shane then goes one by one to Mysterio, Hardy, Samoa Joe and then, R-Truth. Shane does a double take when he sees Truth and tells him he’s not a part of the team. Truth says he wants to join SmackDown’s roster, to which Shane says he already is. Miz tells the team that he can get them all a signed copy of The Marine 6 and Truth says that would be great, he’d love a copy signed by Becky Lynch. That got a big cheer from Los Angeles. Shane leads a SmackDown chant from his team.
