Earlier in the night, we saw WWE 24/7 Champion Bad Bunny ridiculing The Miz as he slapped him. Consequently, after Bobby Lashley lost the United States Championship to Matt Riddle, we saw The Miz and The Hurt Business leader, MVP, planning something.

Following the Elimination Chamber match, McIntyre could barely stand as he defeated five Superstars to retain his championship. Suddenly, Bobby Lashley attacked him out of nowhere, rendering him helpless.

In a shocking twist, The Miz appeared on the ramps with a referee and his Money in the Bank contract. He rushed to cash-in his contract as the officials rang the bell.

He initially went for the pin following a DDT, but McIntyre kicked out with whatever was left of him. Without showing any sympathy, the ‘must-see’ one connected with a devastating skull-crashing finale to win the WWE title for the second time in his career.

The Miz first won his WWE title with a MITB cash-in

As we mentioned earlier, The Miz is a two-time WWE Champion. His first WWE title came one decade ago. Coincidentally, his first win was also with the help of the MITB contract.

Back in November 2010, The Miz cashed in his contract on Randy Orton. Like McIntyre today, “The Viper” was also exhausted after a gruesome match against challenger Wade Barrett.

The Miz then headlined WrestleMania 27 as he defended his title against long-time nemesis John Cena. He later lost the title to Cena at Extreme Rules 2011.

Even though Miz is considered one of the most prolific WWE Superstars, the company has booked him poorly over the years.

With his win against McIntyre, is the WWE trying to redeem itself?

The Hollywood A-lister finally proved his worth as he answered not only Bad Bunny but also all of his critics. Do you think we will see Miz at WrestleMania 37? Let us know in the comments below.
