News On SmackDown Segment Involving The Miz And Decoy Baby

As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live in Evansville, IN at the Ford Center on the USA Network, there was a final segment that involved The Miz throwing a decoy baby at Daniel Bryan in the ring after The Miz had pretended it was his daughter.

Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio shed some light on the segment with the belief that the segment on SmackDown Live was planned to get heat for Bryan. Here is what he had to say (H/T Sportskeeda for the transcription):

“It was just an angle to get heat. That’s all it was—an angle to get heat—to get heat on Daniel Bryan. Bryan tried to catch the baby that was fake and he got swerved. It’s good, because for SummerSlam obviously they’re going to do a match (between Bryan and The Miz), and so far it makes no sense for Daniel Bryan to touch him before SummerSlam.”
