WWE SmackDown live results: AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Show Recap --

Miz welcomed everyone to Miz TV. He promoted the Miz & Mrs. reality show debuting in a few weeks. He introduced his guests for tonight, Team Hell No. Miz promised that he’s out here as a professional and asked Daniel Bryan to do the same. Bryan teased punching Miz in the face but Kane stopped him. Miz compared Team Hell No reuniting to Justin Timberlake rejoining NSYNC. Kane noted that NSYNC would never reunite because JT’s too big a star.

Kane turned his attention to The Bludgeon Brothers and said that if any team can beat Rowan & Harper it’s Team Hell No. Miz showed a video package on the history of Team Hell No, which included Kane and Bryan’s feud. Miz pretended showing the footage was a mistake. Bryan called out Miz for trying to stir the pot. 

Miz said Bryan is hiding behind Team Hell No because he can’t hang with Miz in the ring. Bryan went after Miz but Kane stopped him again and told him to breathe. Bryan calmed down and Miz mocked him for hiding behind Kane. Kane didn't like the comment and grabbed Miz by the throat but The Bludgeon Brothers interrupted.

Before they got to the ring, SAnitY interrupted and attacked Team Hell No from behind. The New Day ran out for the save. However, The Bludgeon Brothers and SAnitY gave the faces a vicious beatdown. After, Rowan & Harper had a stare down with SAnitY. After the commercial break, it was annouced that Team Hell No and The New Day team up to face SAnitY and The Bludgeon Brothers in a 10-men tag team match later.

Backstage, Team Hell No and The New Day tried to come up with a game plan for later. Bryan wants to pick a body part and chop them down. Kane wants to set the heels on fire and drag them to hell. Bryan and Kane argued. Big E stopped them and united the team.

Big E wanted to know if Kane is with them. Kane said, “I give you my word. This is a battle we’ll win and with this vow forever has now begun. This I promise you.” Bryan correctly pointed out that Kane quoted NSYNC. Kane noted that it still applies.
