Miz says that we can talk all day about the moneymaker, but he is feeling charitable and he wants to give back. Miz says that he wants to mentor some of the younger members of the WWE Universe. Miz brings out Roman Reigns.

Roman starts to talk but Miz interrupts and says that if Roman fails, he will be known as a guy who wears a vest with a nice smile and great hair. You will be known as a guy who was once on MizTV. Are you ready to know that you were so close to Superstardom but could not rise to the occasion?

Roman starts to talk again and Miz interrupts and he says that he knows that Roman wants to look to him for advise.

Miz says that he is one of the few Superstars who have been in movies.
