A lot of people were surprised when Roman Reigns beat the Miz for the Intercontinental Championship as seen in the main event of this week’s episode of Raw.
However, it appears that the company had a good reason to put the title on Roman, though it has less to do with the Big Dog and the Miz was more responsible for it.
According to Pwinsider the Miz is set to leave WWE to start filming The Marine 6 soon, and this is the reason why the company decided to take the belt away from him.
Though at this point, it’s not known how long the now former Intercontinental Champion will be away from WWE programming and it’s not known what the company has in store for him when he returns.
There is no news yet on what the company has planned for the title either, so it’s hard to say if Roman will hold the belt for some time or he will drop it to someone else in the upcoming weeks.
