WWE Live Video
RAW kicked off with The Miz who got a big pop from the fans in Manchester. Miz cut a blistering promo on Baron Corbin, calling him “SmackDown’s toilet break” before calling out Kurt Angle.
Angle came out and said that despite SmackDown having a good run, RAW was the flagship show. Miz then showed footage of SmackDown attack RAW a couple of weeks ago before Kurt Angle addressed Kane attacking Daniel Bryan last week on RAW. Miz accused Angle of orchestrating the attack on Bryan just like Kurt had planned to destroy the Miztourage. Obviously, Angle denied the allegations. Miz retaliated and said Angle had forced him to defend his title last week before putting him in a position where Braun Strowman attacked the Miztourage.
Angle then revealed that to get Braun Strowman on the Survivor Series team for RAW, he had to agree to Braun facing The Miz later on in the night. Angle then walked away as Miz begged him to get out of the situation in some way.
