The Miz finally won the precious WWE title after 10 long years at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. However, he now has to defend it next week on RAW. After tonight’s (02/22/21) shenanigans and some pre-existing “deals,” Bobby Lashley is the number one contender for the WWE Championship.

As The Miz and John Morrison were celebrating the WWE title win on Miz TV, Lashley and the Hurt Business came out. MVP demanded that Miz recognize Lashley’s contributions in making Miz win the title.

Since Morrison made Lashley lose his US title despite MVP and Miz’s business arrangement, Lashley deserves a title shot. Miz agreed to the arrangement, but as a WWE champ, he was quite busy. There was “no time.”

Lashley had had enough and gave Miz an ultimatum. Grabbing him by the collars, Lashley said, “You have one hour to come to your senses and give me what I want.”

He threatened to send Miz to the emergency room.

“One way or another, I’m going to beat the life out of you and take that WWE Championship. It’s going to be painful, merciless, and awesome.”

When the time came, Braun Strowman also demanded a title shot. Shane McMahon then stepped in and announced a match between Lashley and Strowman to determine the title match next week.
