Last night’s episode of SmackDown LIVE saw The Miz & Mandy Rose defeat R-Truth & Carmella in a match that was made by WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon after The Miz asked Vince McMahon for his “blessing” on The Miz’s potential tag team with SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon. Below is a post-show video of Mike Rome interviewing The Miz about the match.
“It was a test. It was a test, it was a McMahon test and I passed it with flying colors,” Miz said. “I won, in a tag match. I can be trusted, I’m loyal.”
Regarding his team with Mandy Rose, The Miz said that he can gel with anyone and pointed to how he is a Six-Time Tag Team Champion. He said, “I make people better when I’m in the ring with them, and I can do the same. I can win with Mandy Rose and I can definitely win with my co-bestie, Shane McMahon, and become the best tag team in the world. And I hope Shane’s listening.”
