By the time They’re done in Saudi Arabia, you could see a new man, an Ucey right hand man Jey Uso.
Roman says enough of the Ucey talk. For over two years, he has been hyping opponents and the only thing that happens is they get to the match and they get smashed. And he doesn’t want them to think that he is dishonest or lying. He had to think about this and to be honest, he is the greatest of all time. And he is going against someone who has had two matches. There is no way he is going to sit up and hype up a match with an outsider like Logan Paul. The tribal chief won’t do that but the wiseman will. He gives Heyman the microphone.

The Miz says first and foremost, his tribal chief, he acknowledges him. He is out here to help him, no one in this industry knows Logan Paul more than him. He technically brought him into WWE, trained him and taught him everything. But he couldn’t teach him about the right hand. He has pins in his hand that has knockout power. If he doesn’t believe him, he should ask Jey. He apologises for not being able to help him earlier, being an A-Lister, he has been dealing with a deranged stalker. He tells Roman he thinks they can help each other. He knows Logan’s strengths and weaknesses. Roman helps him with he who shall not be named and he helps him neutralise Logan Paul.
Roman tells Miz that he is trying to cut a deal. Roman says that doesn’t sound too bad. But before they get to this deal, Roman wants to ask him a question. Miz says this is his ring, he can ask anything. Roman says he thinks he likes him. Roman asks why does everyone keep talking about Logan Paul knocking him out? Roman hits Miz with a Superman punch. Roman says they should be talking about him knocking Logan Paul out and then you will not have any other choice but to acknowledge him.

In comes Mustafa Ali who says he was looking forward to fighting tonight. As they say, everything is bigger in Texas. Ali looks at the Miz and says well almost everything. He tells Miz he has tiny balls and laughs. Miz says he will beat him tonight with a broken jaw.

He tells them to stand up on their snowflake feet and welcome the modern day wrestling God, Baron Corbin.

He wanted to come out and say thank you from the bottom of his heart that they scraped together their last few dollars to purchase a ticket to come see him in the flesh tonight.
Corbin says he knows it wasn’t easy. They prbably had to put in a few extra hours at the factory but that just shows him how much they truly love him. They all know the truth and the truth is and out comes R-Truth.
Out comes R-Truth wearing a cowboy hat. JBL calls him a buffoon. He asks him what he is doing, he looks ridiculous. R-Truth says he wanted to come out and wish Dallas a happy Halloween.

Byron Saxton hosts WWE investigates. He says Dexter Lumis has stalked The Miz and Johnny Gargano knows the truth. Gargano says he has known Dexter for years, he has his quirks but he is a guy trying to make a living. Dexter married into his NXT family. He had to learn to accept him like a son in law or a pet raccoon. But after the wedding, their family fell apart. Dexter lost his job and fell on hard times.
Gargano says it took a toll on him and Miz took advantage of it. When Gargano returned to WWE, he overheard Miz and Dexter talking, he recorded it on his phone. We hear the recording. Miz tells Dexter that he was a little snug with his sleeper and people are buying it. He will pay him now and pay him again next week.
Byron asks him if they have some financial arrangement. Gargano says he believe Miz is paying Dexter to stage attacks and he is a celebrity and celebrity stage stories and call the media about it all the time. Byron says these are serious accusations. Gargano tells him to look at the footage. The first time Miz and Dexter saw each other on Raw, there was no physical altercation.
Gargano says Miz was never going to beat Bobby Lashley in the steel cage match and he found a way to keep the blame off himself. That’s why Dexter cost him the match. Gargano says somewhere along the way, Miz must have stopped paying Dexter and he lost control of the situation. And now Dexter is after him.
Byron says this is a shocking development.
