Shane McMahon was backstage and The Miz came in and wanted to make sure that The Usos aren’t getting a tag team title opportunity because they are the best tag team in the world. McMahon said they are very far away from the title picture. The Miz said Shane can just put them in the title match. Shane said he’s not using his pull to do that. Then he said they have to be better.

The Miz said he’s thinking about going with the white leather for their costumes and McMahon left.
