Miz and John Morrison were pacing around backstage when Charly Caruso interrupted them for an interview. Before Caruso could question them, Miz blasted her and McIntyre in a scathing promo. “Firstly, the bell never rang so I never officially cashed in my Money in the Bank contract. Secondly, Drew had no business sticking his big ugly nose in our business”, said Miz.

The former Intercontinental Champion came agonizingly close to cashing in his contract and stealing the WWE Title from Randy Orton for the second time in his career. He previously cashed in on Randy Orton in 2011 in what remains one of the most iconic cash-in’s in history. He went on to main event WrestleMania 27, and beat John Cena to retain the championship.

“Drew is nothing more than a petty, selfish, petulant child, that if he cannot get his way, no body else can get their way”, ranted Miz who was visibly livid at the situation. Miz claimed that McIntyre was so jealous of his fame and success that he could not allow him to have his moment. “You lost, get over it Drew!”, yelled the A-Lister .

Drew McIntyre’s 19-year dream to become WWE Champion was fulfilled when he beat Brock Lesnar for the title at WrestleMania 36. He lost it in a hellacious Hell in a Cell match to the Viper, Randy Orton. Drew looked set to walk into Survivor Series, and maybe even WrestleMania with the title, before Orton dashed his hopes.

Miz angrily challenged McIntyre to two on one handicap match in the main event. McIntyre had no right to lose to Miz and Morrison and steamrolled his way through both. He pinned the A-Lister after kicking his head off with the Claymore Kick. As he celebrated, Orton slithered in and delivered an RKO, returning the favour from earlier in the show.

Orton has a target on his back, now that he’s the champion. With Drew hot on his heels and the Fiend lurking in the shadows, Orton might have to now be alert to avoid a sudden cash-in. Orton would not want a repeat of 2011. Meanwhile, all Miz wants is to become WWE Champion after nearly a decade.
