The Miz is the brand new WWE Champion after effectively cashing in his Cash within the Financial institution briefcase on Drew McIntyre at .
Within the pay-per-view primary match, McIntyre defeated AJ Types, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, Sheamus, and Kofi Kingston to retain the WWE Championship. It used to be all the way through the post-match, in-ring party that Bobby Lashley attacked McIntyre from in the back of, slammed his head into the announcer’s desk, and cinched within the Harm Lock.
The Miz instantly cashed in and achieved a snap DDT, which McIntyre kicked out of it. Miz then achieved his finisher, the Cranium Crushing Finale, to attain the pinfall and win the name.
Previous to the principle match, the digital camera stuck The Miz and MVP–Lashley’s manager–conversing behind the curtain. One can suppose that the 2 males struck some kind of deal. Perhaps if Lashley helped Miz win the name, Lashley would get the primary name shot? We’re going to no doubt to find out extra at the February 22 episode of Uncooked.
The Miz gained the briefcase from Otis at Hell in a Cellular in October 2020. He up to now tried and didn’t money within the briefcase on McIntyre at TLC: Tables, Ladders, Chairs, however he used a contractual loophole to retain the briefcase and his name alternative.
That is Miz’s 2d reign as WWE champion. His first reign used to be in 2010, when he cashed within the Cash within the Financial institution briefcase towards Randy Orton on Uncooked. He effectively defended the name towards John Cena at WrestleMania XXVII, ahead of dropping it to Cena at Excessive Laws in 2011.
