The All-Mighty is by himself tonight. Lashley says he’ll only answer questions he feels like answering, and refers to himself in the third person. Miz says Lashley is one of the most athletically gifted superstars to ever enter a WWE ring. Some people think Lashley has yet to put it all together. Lashley says he’s been back in WWE for a year and is already a two-time Intercontinental Champion. What has Miz done. Miz removes his sunglasses and starts listing off his accomplishments. If you read off his list of accolades, we’d be here for a long time. Nobody is questioning Miz’ potential. He’s an overachiever. Have you seen his wife? Miz did all that without a shred of Lashley’s athletic ability.
Lashley says he’d like to talk about what he didn’t do at WrestleMania. Shane McMahon put a whooping on Miz and his father. Miz had an opportunity at payback and screwed it up. No wonder Miz’ father thinks he’s worthless. Miz attacks Lashley and punches him to the corner. Lashley forces him to the corner and shoulders him. Miz fights out and knocks him out of the ring. Miz throws the chairs from the ring at Lashley and they share a staredown.

We’re back with Alexa Bliss for another Moment. She says it’s time to announce the women for the Money In The Bank match. The first woman is Natalya and she comes out and takes a seat. Nattie thanks Alexa for the introduction but Alexa tells her we have more announcements. The next two women are Naomi and Dana Brooke. The three of them start bickering and Alexa tells them to calm down because there’s another woman who needs to be announced, another woman who deserves the spotlight. And so the final competitor in that match is…her. She tells them all to leave and gloats, but Naomi challenges her to a match.
We get our second episode of Firefly Fun House. Bray is seen painting and welcomes us to his show. He says he loves to paint and it’s a way for him to express himself. He says no-one can hurt you when you express yourself. A rabbit puppet appears beside him and asks to see his work. He turns it around and it’s a house burning down in the woods. The witch puppet appears and Bray tells the rabbit to scram. The witch says she warned him about the woods and Bray says he knows, that’s all in the past, and he’s been forgiven. She tells him to leave her alone so she can get her beauty sleep. Bray returns to the rabbit and he calls the witch a sociopath, which the rabbit says is the word of the day. Bray agrees and says goodbye.
