Last week on Monday Night RAW, WWE announced several matches for their Survivor Series pay-per-view as well as the theme for the event, RAW vs SmackDown, officially beginning their build-up towards the show.
RAW general manager Kurt Angle announced almost the entire card for the event next month, which includes two traditional Survivor Series Elimination matches, men and women, and four Champion vs Champion matches.
Not only were most of the matches announced, but WWE amped up their build-up for the show as well by having SmackDown Live superstars invade and attack RAW superstars who were backstage on Monday night.
After RAW had finished, SmackDown superstars posted videos on their social media accounts of their reactions to taking RAW under siege as they traveled away from the arena in their vehicles. United States Champion Baron Corbin was one of those superstars.
In his video, The Lone Wolf took a direct shot at his Survivor Series opponent, The Miz, which angered the Intercontinental Champion, especially since he made a comment about his wife and fellow WWE superstar Maryse.
Sure enough, The Awesome One sent a response to the United States Champion, delivering once again another fantastic, natural promo, showing why he is truly one of the best in the business on the mic.
He said: “Baron Corbin! I just got your message. I’ve been really busy this week. But I’ve gotta say - it’s the best promo I’ve ever seen you cut. It’s amazing because when I cut my best promos? It’s in front of thousands in attendance and millions watching at home on a big camera in a WWE ring. While your best promo is on an iPhone on social media. So listen up, Twitter tough guy.
"This isn’t about Raw and SmackDown supremacy for me. This is about making the Intercontinental championship the most prestigious and honorable title in all the WWE. I bust my ass, day-in and day-out to make that title relevant. While the United States championship is working overtime to make its holder relevant."
"See, I’ve heard all about you in the WWE ring, how talented you are. But to me? You’re just another generic big man who will be gone in two years while I’m carrying this show for the next ten. And if you ever talk about my pregnant wife again, I’ll knock your f***ing teeth down your throat!”
WWE fans loved the promo by Miz, and even SmackDown superstar Rusev was taken back by his words despite the fact they're supposed to be on opposite sides.
The Miz and Corbin will face each other in a non-title Champion vs Champion match at Survivor Series on November 19.
