On with the show!
AND WE’RE OFF AND RUNNING THIS WEEK, as the very first thing we see is the first appearance of The Miz! Maryse greets him in their Los Angeles home by telling him that one of their dogs, Mocha, has just peed in front of the bed.
That’s our Mocha! [laugh track] He admonishes Mocha, and we have our next Total Divas breakout animal star.
Already better than Winston. Well, maybe.
The show begins, and Paige is backstage at Smackdown, talking to Foxy about how she’s eager to get back into the dating scene after breaking up with her fiancé she never wanted last season. This MIGHT be foreshadowing, but I haven’t really heard anything about her personal life over the past few months, so let’s all be surprised together!
Elsewhere, ICE COLD MARK CARRANO is talking to Naomi, explaining he knows she’s frustrated with creative, but unfortunately they’re not going to able to do anything else with her for about three or four more weeks. But there’s a silver lining, because if they’re not going to be doing anything with her, they might as well put her in a movie!
