We see a clip of last week’s Raw involving The Miz and Johnny Gargano. We cut backstage as Johnny Gargano is walking and the Miz interrupts him.

Miz says he is not lying and that Johnny is using his name for clickbait. Miz says he is going down to the ring as he storms out.
They show Dale Earnhardt and the Miz is in the ring and he says to get the camera off Dale, he can beat him with his Tesla. He says Johnny Gargano is right, he has been keeping a secret. But first, a lunatic shows up to Raw and gets carried away by security. The very next week, he shows up and kidnaps him. After that, he repeatedly attacks and stalks him and he finds himself waking up in situations he does not want to talk about.
Miz says the reason why that lunatic targeted him was because of his mind. Not some Hannibal Lecture but his knowledge and resume is unparalleled. When he chose to give a selfless act and share his expertise with an up and coming superstar, he who shall not be named, could not stand that he chose Tommaso Ciampa, he sat at home jobless and thought that Tommaso stole the opportunity he thought he deserves.
He tells everyone if they see Tommaso to let him know. Out comes Gargano who says we all know that is not true. He says the Miz that Tommaso is not missing, he just texted him a few minutes ago. He is actually injured, Miz is a huge liar. Gargano gets in the ring and says if he wants Gargano and Dexter out of his life, he has to tell the truth or he knows what is going to happen.

Miz says maybe he is the idiot for thinking that North Carolina can handle his reasoning.

R-Truth asks the crowd if he should give Miz a good old fashion beating. Miz says they aren’t fighting. Gargano tells him he knows Dexter deflated his balls, he didn’t know he had none left. Miz says he wants truth. Gargano and Truth tell him he can’t handle the truth and jinx each other.
