Three nights before The Greatest Royal Rumble, the 975th edition of WWE SmackDown LIVE came to you, live, from the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, KY. Last week’s Superstar Shake-Up saw the likes of Samoa Joe, Asuka, Cesaro & Sheamus, Big Cass, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville, SAnitY, Andrade “Cien” Almas, and United States Champion Jeff Hardy all come to SmackDown LIVE, giving the blue brand a very intriguing makeover. Among those who found a new home on SmackDown LIVE via the Superstar Shake-Up was The Miz as “The A-Lister” comes to Tuesday nights without his backup, The Miztourage, who remained on RAW. The Miz’s return to SmackDown LIVE means that the intense and personal rivalry between The Miz and Daniel Bryan will write an all-new chapter as, with Daniel back to being a full-time competitor, there is nothing stopping Daniel Bryan from getting his hands on The Miz. Now, as the self-proclaimed “premiere” of The Miz is set for SmackDown LIVE, “The A-Lister” would bring Miz TV with him and his guest on Miz TV would be none other than Daniel Bryan! What will happen when Daniel Bryan and The Miz are in the same ring at the same time with nothing holding Daniel Bryan back? Does The Miz have a plan for dealing with Daniel Bryan?
