Adrian Neville reveals to The Sun how Pat Patterson enjoyed his NXT title match with Sami Zayn at Takeover: R Evolution so much he stormed the ring to congratulate them both.

Neville said: “Pat wasn’t scheduled to come out at all, he happened to be backstage.

Neville also told The Sun how he 'teared up' at the end of the show's main event, a match he rates as one the best the pair have ever had together.
