The Miz spent the better part of two years bringing the Intercontinental Championship back from the dead. While the title was defended in good matches here and there, it wasn’t seen as an important prize for wrestlers to hold. However, The Miz’s work with the title made it something worth coveting.
Now that the Miz has been separated from the Intercontinental Championship, he’s set his eyes on another goal, the WWE Championship. The Awesome One qualified for the Money in the Bank ladder match on the latest episode of Smackdown Live, defeating United States Champion Jeff Hardy in a pretty great bout. With a shot at the briefcase, The Miz plans on elevating the WWE Championship like he did the IC belt.
In an interview with SI.com, The Miz let it be known that he wants the WWE Title to be back in the main event.
My goal is to make the WWE Championship as relevant and prestigious as it should be. Do I think AJ Styles is doing a terrific job as WWE Champion? Absolutely.
But that WWE Championship should be in the main event of every single WWE pay per view. It upsets me when I see that it’s not. My goal is to, not only win the Money in the Bank contract, cash it in and become WWE Champion. I want to put that title back where it belongs; the main event.
Is The Miz right? And could he be the one to bring the championship back to the main event?
