Bischoff recalled Bruce Prichard telling him that he needed a light colored suit because it was going to get trashed wedding vow renewal segment. Bischoff continued, "He said, ‘Well, why don’t you get a really light colored pastel suit and expect it to get trashed. There’s going to be a wedding.’ That’s all he told me, no details, not who, nothing. I got there, and what’s funny is I didn’t even know Bruce wasn’t going to be at TV until about four in the afternoon. I had fun. I got to hang out with Edge a little bit. We had a great conversation. Kevin Owens, I dig Kevin. We stay in touch through social media. I had a blast doing it. I’ve never done anything in the ring, not even a promo with Miz before. I’ve never worked with him in any way, shape, or form. I worked with him on this, him and his wife Maryse. They’re really, really good. When you get a chance to work with somebody that’s as good as Miz is, and Maryse, she is really good too, it’s so much fun, and it’s so noticeable. There’s such a difference between somebody who’s absolutely at the top of their game when it comes to dialogue and performing in that type of scenario vs someone who is not that familiar with it or hasn’t done a lot of it. There’s a reason why Miz has been there as long as he has at the level that he is because he is really, really good as a performer. It was fun working with him.”
