Miz TV with Finn Balor

The Miz welcomes everyone to Miz TV and quickly brings out Finn Balor. Commentary played him up as “James Dean-cool.” This feels like the second time this has been said since Balor’s return.

Miz mocks Balor’s entrance and says he should be in the Balor Club. Balor says that can’t happen. The fans cheered for Maryse being in it, though, a group that’s mostly men.

After going through what’s happened these past 12 months, Miz asks if Balor is a failure. Balor says no, and the A-lister continues to mock him for size.

The Demon King is asked what’s next, and says he’ll get his title back. Miz laughs and says it’s Brock Lesnar. Balor disregards Lesnar’s size and challenges Miz to a fight. Miz puts Maryse in front of him to prevent a fight, leading to Balor saying he’s not worth it.

To finish things off, Miz calls out the venue for playing Balor’s music, leading to him being hit with a slingblade and dropkick.

This could be a one-off before Balor starts something with Wyatt, who called him out weeks ago. However, why wouldn’t the Miz want his retribution after this? Expect this to play out on Monday’s episode of Raw.
