Show opens up and The Miz comes out to the ring. Miz says he’s sacrificed a lot getting to the top of this business. This business has meant everything to him. But his friendship with Shane McMahon meant everything to him too. Miz says it may sound corny but it really was a great moment for him when his father got in the ring and said he was proud and that he loved him. That was all because of Shane. But then Shane turned on him. Shane even attacked Miz’s father and Miz says Shane is a disgusting human being, just like Vince McMahon.

Miz says he’s earned every opportunity he’s ever had, but now Shane has earned something: a beatdown from the Miz at WrestleMania. With that, Miz takes his leave as his music starts to play.
