Miz TV begins with tonight's guests, AJ Lee and Big E Langston, and he asks what the relationship status is between the two of them. AJ says she's been hearing this for awhile but they are just good friends, and Langston looks out for her because he is her best friend.

She says she's had her heart broken too many times, but Miz suggests that the problem isn't them, but her. (Cont'd…)
