On last night’s episode of SmackDown Live, The Miz hosted a “Miz TV” segment with SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon as his guest. Miz started off by singing McMahon’s praises for leading Team SmackDown against Team Raw at Survivor Series over the weekend, albeit an unsuccessful challenge. However, then Miz proposed something very interesting. While also dubbing himself and Shane the co-owners of the “Best In The World” moniker, from the World Cup win at Crown Jewel, Miz suggested he and Shane form a tag team.
He then called out two local competitors from the Los Angeles area to come down to the ring and participate in a Tag Team match against him and McMahon. McMahon, who was showing the effects of the punishment his body took at Survivor Series, was never tagged into the match, and one of the local competitors pinned Miz for the win. The local competitors were dubbed as Dane and Wayne, “The Bryant Brothers.”
It turns out, Dane Bryant was played by independent wrestler Eli Everfly. Everfly competes for the Bar Wrestling promotion, where he is one-half of a tag team with Delilah Doom – another former WWE jobber. He Tweeted out the following after pinning The Miz for the victory last night:

As for Wayne Bryant, he was played by independent wrestler “All That” Keita Murray. Murray also worked for WWE this past Sunday, as he was one of the ringside doctors tending to Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series after she was beaten down by Charlotte Flair with a kendo stick. Murray also recently lost a squash match to soon-to-be Monday Night Raw NXT call-up Lars Sullivan.
