Adrian Neville revealed to The Sun Newspaper (paywall) how Pat Patterson coming to the ring after his match against Sami Zayn to congratulate them both at NXT Takeover: R Evolution was not planned.
Neville said: “Pat wasn’t scheduled to come out at all, he happened to be backstage.
“He comes along occasionally to NXT and lends his advice to some of the younger guys.
“Apparently, watching the match, Pat wasn’t meant to come out but he just foxed his way through — he said he was going to jump the railings, no matter what Triple H said!
“He just shook my hand and congratulated me and told me he’d enjoyed the match which coming from someone like Pat is huge.
“It was surreal. Someone like Pat giving you that nod, it is unbelievable.”
