onight’s Talking Smack got a little heated with a fiery promo from The Miz that resulted in SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan walking off the set.
Courtesy of CageSideSeats.com, here is the full transcript of what went down:
Miz: Let me tell you about a coward. Let me tell you about a guy who tells his WWE fans, people that he loves that he will be back – he PROMISES THEM – “I promise you, I will be back in one year’s time to claim this [Intercontinental] title.” But you didn’t, Daniel, did you? But I’m the coward. I’m the one who doesn’t love the fans.
Bryan: If they would let me come back, I would come back.
Miz: Oh you would? You love that WWE ring, you love wrestling. You love being right in that wrestling ring and you love wrestling, right? Well why don’t you quit? Why don’t you quit and go to the bingo halls with your indie friends, Daniel?
Renee Young: I think you need to calm… Hey. Hey. That’s not what this show’s about.
Miz: Let me and the GM have this. This is a great show, Renee, but we’re talking here. I need to talk to you real quick because the fact is you’re the one who calls me the coward but you’re the one that doesn’t get in the WWE ring again.
[Bryan gets up and walks off]
No! Don’t you walk away from me, Daniel. Don’t you walk away! I’m the one that loves the fans. I’m the one who loves everyone and everything. You’re the one that gets up and walks… every single time! You’re the coward!
As previously reported, Finn Balor will relinquish his newly-won WWE Universal Championship on tonight’s edition of Raw, according to an earlier Twitter post issued by Raw General Manager Mick Foley. The title is being relinquished due to Balor suffering a shoulder injury during his SummerSlam match against Seth Rollins.
In an update, the WWE Network’s Raw Pre-Show has announced that Balor will likely miss up to six months of action due to the injury that he sustained, which, as previously reported, is likely to require surgery.
