Derailleur cable stuck in Rival shifter

Hey guys, I was trying to switch out my derailleur cables with some fresh ones, but I can't seem to get the rear derailleur cable out of the SRAM Rival shifters.

It seems to have gotten stuck (probably from the tension) in the shifter. I tried using needle nose pliers, but there just isn't enough space to grab the cable head and pull it out. Also, whenever I try and push the cable to force it out, the shifter will just shift down or the cable will just bend.

Any suggestions? I would like to get it fixed today so I can ride tomorrow.
