Darren Young won a No. 1 contender's battle royal on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw to earn the right to face The Miz for the WWE Intercontinental Championship later this month at Battleground. The finish saw Baron Corbin throw Dolph Ziggler over the top ropes but then Apollo Crews and Corbin eliminated themselves simultaneously. Young was the only competitor left in the ring, giving him the victory. Miz tweeted this after the match:
