Bryan doesn’t care because he doesn’t respect Miz and doesn’t like him. Miz yelled back and said the feelings are mutual. He was in Bryan’s face, yelling about how he can’t wait to see The Fiend rip him apart next week. Miz went on about trying to be there for Bryan since day one and maybe talk some sense into him, but that hasn’t worked so maybe he will just try this. A-Lister slapped Bryan in the face.
