– Los Angeles Knight enters and takes the mic. He told us he’d be talking about LA Nite in a few moments. Tonight she’s talking about Bray Wyatt. Sometimes, our biggest enemies may be the people who help us the most. They went through hell together, he prepared him for anything… Thanks, Bray!

As for The Miz, he says LA Knight is just fashion. He’s OK with it because The Miz never was. When he was champion 12 years ago, he served in history between The Rock and John Cena. If The Miz is looking to end LA Night, he can do it anywhere. Finally, the next time The Miz sees him, he can run!
