Cody said Miz hasn’t changed in 6 years at all, but he has. Cody said he’s back to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship belt. Miz reminded Cody that it’s a Title, a belt holds up pants.
Cody then mentioned WWE wrestlers and Miz reminded him of WWE terminology again and said it’s ‘Superstars’. Cody said Miz feels threatened by him and that’s why he’s hostile right now.
Miz said he has heard Seth Rollins wants a rematch against Cody and he doesn’t think Seth will lose this time, now that he knows who his opponent is going to be. Cody said he’ll accept a rematch against Rollins.
Rhodes is looking forward to his first televised match on RAW in 6 years tonight against him. Miz then tried to attack Cody, but Cody sent Miz out of the ring.
