Miz and Morrison came together with their same brash attitude, the famous Dirt Sheet show, and another 50-day title reign. The duo took on Strowman for the Universal Championship at Backlash in a one of a kind stipulated match i.e. a 2 on 1 handicap match.

A rare occurrence for sure, however, the promotion has seen a number of stars performing in this format. For instance, the bout for the WWE Championship where Kane and Christian took on The Rock back in September 2000.

Miz and Morrison were well aware that going toe to toe against the monster among men Braun Strowman would yield no results. Therefore they needed to approach things differently.

Filling his protein bottle with materials that fizz out and damaging the windscreen of the Universal Champion’s car. Miz and Morrison tried it all, but that wasn’t it.

At Backlash Miz and Morrison made their signature entrance together. The duo played their final hand to try and get into the champion’s head while everyone was eagerly awaiting his arrival.

The team played their composed song “Hey Hey”, which was broadcasted on the WWE Network show The Bump. They did this in a bid to mock Strowman.

The song took shots at Braun Strowman’s beard smelling like cheese, of nobody liking him, and how Smackdown needed a new champion.

Braun Strowman Reigns Supreme

The match was a predictable one with Miz and Morrison trying to play the numbers game on Strowman. The dramatic moment of the match came The Miz pulled John Morrison out as he was covering Braun Strowman after a well-executed highflying move combined with Miz’s Skull Crushing Finale.

Making the best of this situation, Strowman took advantage of Miz’s selfish antics. He vanquished the duo with a running power slam and pinning Morrison to retain the title.

This rivalry was more of a filler due to the absence of Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt returning home for the birth of his second child with Superstars like AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan competing for the Intercontinental title.

The rivalry looks like it will come to an end in the near future as The Fiend Bray Wyatt and The Big Dog will be making their return soon enough.
