Following his upset victory in theIntercontinental Championship No. 1 Contender’s Battle Royal on Monday’s Raw, Darren Young and his life coach, WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund, joined the current titleholder The Miz and his wife Maryse on “Miz TV.”
After presenting a series of moments from Backlund’s extraordinary career, The A-lister insulted his Battleground challenger by introducing a supposed compilation of Young’s greatest moments and then showed only bar codes.
As the explosive situation reached a fevered pitch and Young got in Miz’s face – with his life coach cheering him on – the Intercontinental Champion opted to calmly leave the ring.
The mind games have begun as their match at WWE Battleground approaches.
