Miz quickly cuts off Neville saying this is his show and that he wasn’t an approved guest. He brings up how you can’t just walk into WWE and get a shot at the Intercontinental Championship bringing up how he’s a five-time champion and he main evented WrestleMania while those guys main evented bingo halls.
