WWE Crowns New Intercontinental Champion

The Miz won the WWE Intercontinental Championship in a battle royal at Battleground on Sunday night.

Miz, who hadn’t been eliminated, spent a large portion on the outside, where he “played possum.” The match came down to Sheamus and Dolph Ziggler. Once Ziggler eliminated Sheamus, he got ready to celebrate when Miz came back into the ring and tossed him out to win the title.

The Miz is a 3-time WWE Intercontinental Champion.

    I guarantee that the Miz will bring back prestige to the Intercontinental Championship. The prestige that it had in the days of The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, Shawn Michaels. Razor Ramon.

      I guarantee he won’t.

    I can only imagine the Creative Meeting on this… “How about we give the IC title to The Miz I mean he was the 2nd best heel in 2011, OK since then he pissed on the legacy of Ric Flair, and since faded to obscurity, and since he returned last match he’s been as hot as ice”, “Yeah, I was watching this WCW thing on the Network, and apparently David Arquette was their champion, and people still talk about that. And guess what, he’s a movie star, The Miz has a movie coming out soon as well, this could be money”. And then at that moment Vince McMahon leans forward in his chair which coincidentally has a squeaky axis(some say it was designed this way to channel out the drying screams of the former leaders of industry he has gone on to monopolize) as he puts one and one together and the sound on money fills his head before stamping his approval all over this contender for “Urgh” moment of the year.

      I don’t think it went anything like that

  • Vic Jose

    Well at least they didn’t give the belt to someone who won’t amount to anything

      The above comment contains *No* sarcasm what-so-ever(!) :/

    Should’ve been Bo.

    I hope its Miz v Sheamus v Ziggler at Summerslam to unify the titles because if its just Sheamus v Miz there will be hardly any crowd reaction at all

    This whole “A”List persona is once again a regurgitated (( that means “thrown up”)) storyline from a few years ago and from what I have seen, Miz-erable will NOT make it work…. he only gets a pop or heat when working with someone, and THEY get the rub…. Miz will be an eternal mid-carder at best and WE forcing him down our throats agin is a joke….. they keep Dolph and Kofi down, among others… and promote idiots who gets DEAD heat… Must see? I really do not think so…. he has not been able to do anything….. WWE has screwed so many over in favor of this idiot it is pathetic

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve
    had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for
    $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was
    bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to
    tech tab for work detail

    I have no issue with Miz winning, but damn they blew a great spot to end that battle royal. That super kick from Ziggler stopped Sheamus in mid-air and I could swear he floated there for a minute before reversing course mid-air and falling backwards.

  • DW

    Why won’t they let Ziggler wrestler? People love him…why the Miz?

      I have a feeling it’s down the concussions he received, they was pretty close together, other than that I can’t think of a reason why they won’t. I really hope they do sometime soon.

    I hate when they use this finish for a Battle Royal.

    Way to go WWE; Giving the title to a guy you shouldve released last year.

    The Miz winning the title: the minute the crowd died.
