Mike had customized an action figure in the likeness of Ox to give to him and needed Ox to sign his George Napolitano books. The figure and autographs weren't the only things exchanged that day. Phone numbers and ideas were shared and a close friendship began.

The main difference to me was that Randy Orton got the biggest reaction even if everyone should have been cheering for Dean Ambrose to get revenge.
