What's the story?

Shane McMahon and The Miz have formed the oddest sort of alliance on SmackDown Live. They have even earned the opportunity to face The Bar for the titles at the Royal Rumble.

Well, this week's edition of SmackDown Live coincides with Shane McMahon's 49th birthday. And The Miz has promised to hold celebrations for the man.

In case you didn't know...

The Miz went to the finals of the 'Best In The World' tournament at WWE Crown Jewel. Because he couldn't compete in the finals owing to an injury, Shane McMahon stepped in and won the whole tournament for SmackDown Live.

Ever since then, The Miz has been on Shane McMahon's case to form the best tag team in the world. After Shane McMahon reluctantly agreed, The Miz ensured that the two of them got a title shot for the Royal Rumble.

And now, the next chapter of this story unfolds.

The heart of the matter

The Miz made an announcement regarding Shane McMahon's birthday celebrations on his social media account. Here's what he had to say:

This Tuesday, it's someone's birthday. That's right. My co-bestie Shane McMahon celebrates a birthday. And who better to host his birthday than yours truly? So tune in. This Tuesday. SmackDown Live. For the best birthday bash in the world. It's gonna be awesome!

As any longtime WWE fan knows, The Bar is almost guaranteed to crash these celebrations to further their feud with Shane McMahon and The Miz. Let's see if the two teams can build heat ahead of the Royal Rumble.
