Adrian Neville Talks WWE Hall Of Famer's Surprise Cameo At "NXT Takeover: R Evolution"

The Sun recently spoke to former NXT Champion Adrian Neville. During the interview, Neville discussed how Pat Patterson enjoyed his NXT title match with Sami Zayn at Takeover: R Evolution so much that he stormed the ring to congratulate them both.

"Pat wasn't scheduled to come out at all, he happened to be backstage," Neville said. "He comes along occasionally to NXT and lends his advice to some of the younger guys. Apparently, watching the match, Pat wasn't meant to come out but he just foxed his way through he said he was going to jump the railings, no matter what Triple H said!

"He just shook my hand and congratulated me and told me he'd enjoyed the match which coming from someone like Pat is huge. It was surreal. Someone like Pat giving you that nod, it is unbelievable."

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.
