This goes with the previous report on the ACL tear. Morrison shows off the Drip Stick he’s brought, which is a pool water toy. Miz says while gone he’s had an epiphany, and that was that he had to get back to RAW because the show is going back on the road soon, and he knew everyone wants to see him live in person. The other part of his epiphany is how he realized he’s accomplished so much in his career, that he has to give back. Like helping Morrison or his guest tonight.
