  • Ezekiel vs. Kevin Owens

WWE is also promoting Seth Rollins and The Judgment Day for tonight’s episode.

Our live coverage will begin at 8 PM ET.

Please share today’s Viewing Party coverage on social media and chime in with your thoughts in the comments section below.

We’re on the air! Jimmy Smith, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves are on commentary.

We open the show with The Miz already in the ring. This is a Miz TV segment. Miz starts to introduce his guest but is interrupted by Paul Heyman who we see is also already in the ring. Heyman introduces himself.

Miz talks about the Money in the Bank matches and explains how it works. Miz reminds us he has cashed in Money in the Bank successfully on two occasions. Miz explains that one must wait for the perfect moment when the champion is at his most weak and vulnerable.

Miz speculates on the winner of Money in the Bank cashing on Roman Reigns. Heyman says whoever tries to do it will fail.

Heyman mentions that Reigns will defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Riddle on Friday’s episode of “SmackDown”. Heyman starts to go on, but he’s interrupted by Riddle making his entrance.

Riddle enters, with a microphone already in hand, and wants to hear what’s being said about him in person. Miz interrupts and says they demand respect. Heyman gives Riddle credit for having the “balls” to interrupt him and a segment of Miz TV.

Riddle says Heyman and Reigns don’t know him and have no idea what he’s capable of. Apparently, Reigns will be adding a stipulation to the title match on “SmackDown”, but Riddle doesn’t care what it is.

Heyman says Riddle has a lot of momentum, but it will be stopped by Reigns on Friday night. Heyman says Riddle can’t beat Reigns. He doesn’t even think Riddle can beat his opponent tonight. Heyman arranged for a stipulation. If Riddle loses to Reigns, Riddle will never get another shot at the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship as long as Reigns is champion.

With that said, Heyman introduces The Usos, who make their entrance. They appear to have Riddle cornered in the ring. But the Street Profits make their entrance and come into the ring to stand alongside Riddle.

It’ll be Montez Ford vs. Jimmy Uso. But first, we go to a commercial break.
