We are back and we take a look back at Ronda Rousey's contract signing.

Miz makes his way to the ring with Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas.

Miz says we are on the road to Wrestlemania and it stops in Anaheim?  We are 45 minutes away from Los Angeles, a city with star power and entertainment industry cache.  He could see Jennifer Lawrence while trying to pitch his next movie to Michael Bay.  Anaheim is a glorified suburb.  You could stand in line with someone dressed like Donald Duck.  Kurt Angle takes his stars for granted.  In 62 days, he will become the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time.  In 62 days, there will be no argument.  He will be the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time.  Not Shawn Michaels, me.  Not Bret Hart, me.  Not Pedro Morales, me.  Not Edge, Roman Reigns, or anyone else.  Miz says he is bigger than anyone.  His star shines brighter than any supernova.   He stars with his wife in Miz and Mrs.  

All of these accolades and he is treated like any other Superstar.  Miz says he is treated worse.  He doesn't have merchandise.  Look for his t-shirts.  Miz says his face is not on any promotional merchandise.  Miz says he should be going to the main event of Wrestlemania so he could be the first Intercontinental and Universal Champion.  Yet, Kurt Angle forced him to start the Elimination Chamber match with two men who should not be there.  Kurt handed Finn Balor and Seth Rollins an opportunity they did not deserve.  Miz says he is sick of the disrespect.  

Miz says his dream will live on at Wrestlemania because he has the title.  Miz tells everyone to take a good look at this because this is the most prestigious and honorable title in all of WWE.  Since he has this title, this prestigious title he walks into Kurt Angle's office and he wants to know what the Intercontinental Champion is doing at Wrestlemania.

Miz says Kurt Angle told him that your opponent might determine who you face at Wrestlemania.  Miz says he asked 'might'.  Miz says he has carried Raw for the last year on his back.  He made this title more relevant than the Universal Title.  Miz says that he has been here for 12 years and might is all you are going to give him.  He does not care who comes out because they are going to get a beating.

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.
