Miz was highly pitted to appear at Hell in a Cell to steal the title from Orton after a hard-fought match against McIntyre. This would have been the best way to go since Orton is already a heel.

However, Miz picked the perfect opportunity. Just as the bell was about to ring, McIntyre returned furiously and took out The Miz and Morrison. Both were flung out of the ring.
