This was quite the little adventure.
The Miz defending the WWE championship against Bobby Lashley on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw was promoted all week long. Then, they faked like it wasn’t going to happen twice, with Miz simply feigning an injury at first, then simply grabbing the title and running out of the match so he would get counted out but retain the championship.
This all led to Shane McMahon re-booking the match, adding Lumberjacks, and essentially ensuring that Miz would have to wrestle Lashley. He did so, and was immediately squashed. He quite literally got zero offense in and was treated like a rag doll before submitting right there in the middle of the ring to the Hurt Lock.
Bobby Lashley is your new WWE champion, and we can now look ahead to the inevitable clash with Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 37.
