While speaking on Pat McAfee Show Micheal said, “The last 15 minutes of the event Saturday night, Pat, we didn’t say a word. We did not utter a sound for the last 15 minutes of that show. When Sami Zayn turned on Roman Reigns and hit him with the chair? That pop was enormous. This Roman Reigns-Kevin Owens-Bloodline-Sami Zayn storyline is probably the best television we’ve done in a decade. And it’s Emmy-worthy in many ways”.
