The Miz kicked off the show with the announcement of the time and date debut of Miz's upcoming documentary, Miz and Mrs. He then invited The New Day to the ring for an interview. Miz asked The New Day which one of them will be participating in the Money in the Bank ladder match and the trio jokingly said all three of them.
The A-lister then proceeded to explain how The New Day are holding each other back before offering some wise advice to the three members. The Miz even brought up the popular video game Fortnite in his words of advice to Xavier Woods.

#1 The Miz vs. Big E
The Miz took control at first but Big E caught the A-lister and slapped him in the rear to mock him. Big E delivered a huge splash on Miz on the apron while the rest of the New Day helped E out with pancakes and maple syrup. The Miz dropped E face first into the apron as we headed into a commercial break.
We returned to see Big E caught in a headlock by the Miz who went for a clothesline but took a couple of belly to belly suplexes and a splash. Miz missed a DDT and Big E took him down to the mat as Kofi Kinston enthused him ringside. Big E took a knee to the head but it resulted in only a near fall. Both men took each other out with clotheslines as The Bar attacked the New Day ringside. Big E was distracted by Cesaro and took a Skull Crushing Finale and failed to kick out of the following pin.
