The Miz/Big E argument from Talking Smack is going to continue on SmackDown

We already knew that tomorrow night’s (Aug. 28) episode of SmackDown was going to include a contract signing between Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, and Braun Strowman for a No Holds Barred Triple Threat Universal championship match at Payback 2020.

WWE has announced one more segment for the card tomorrow night on FOX. Following up on the heated race debate between Big E and Miz from the relaunch of Talking Smack over the weekend, Big E will now appear as a guest on Miz TV:

After an impassioned back-and-forth with The Miz on “Talking Smack,” Big E will restart the conversation on “Miz TV.”

Big E has gotten off to a scorching start with singles run, but he turned up the heat even more in his confrontation with The Miz. On the return of “Talking Smack” to the award-winning WWE Network, Big E spoke up about Kofi Kingston’s post-WWE Title opportunities, and The Miz was quick to fire back with his own conflicting viewpoint.

Throw in the fact that the New Day powerhouse has defeated The Miz & John Morrison in recent weeks, and it’s fair to assume fireworks will follow on “Miz TV.”

This announcement feels somewhat similar to one month ago when fans spoke out in support of Naomi, and WWE then turned #NaomiDeservesBetter into a storyline on SmackDown television the following week.

Regardless of how much of the argument on Talking Smack between Miz and Big E was a work and how much was a shoot, it’s now full steam ahead on being turned into a complete work for television.

Will you be tuning in to SmackDown at WWE ThunderDome tomorrow night?
