WWE Smackdown: WWE has announced that there will be a “Law & Otis” segment on SmackDown tonight where Otis will represent himself in court in an attempt to stop The Miz from taking his Money in the Bank contract away from him. In storyline, The Miz filed a lawsuit against Otis after Otis attacked Miz & John Morrison during a Dirt Sheet segment and tore off Miz’s suit jacket, pants, and shirt.
When Mandy Rose was moved to Raw last month, the explanation was that Miz used his influence with the USA Network and Fox to separate Rose and Otis. Rose stayed on Raw in the WWE Draft. Miz, Morrison, and Otis’ tag team partner Tucker were selected by Raw in the draft but Otis remained on SmackDown.
Otis appeared on Raw this Monday as “El Gran Gordo.” He wore a mask and teamed with Tucker to defeat Miz & Morrison.
Tonight’s segment was originally supposed to take place two weeks ago, but it was instead said that Miz’s lawyer filed a continuance to delay the trial.
SmackDown is making a one-week-only shift to FS1 tonight due to game three of the World Series airing on Fox. Tonight’s SmackDown is the go-home show for Hell in a Cell. The episode will feature Roman Reigns revealing the consequences for his Universal Championship Hell in a Cell I Quit match against Jey Uso at this Sunday’s pay-per-view.
