This week’s Monday Night Raw featured a Fatal 4-Way match to determine the number one contender for the Intercontinental title. In a shocking fashion, The Miz won the bout and will challenge Gunther at Survivor Series this year. He defeated three other superstar, Ricochet, Bronson Reed, and Ivar to challenge The Ring General for the title.
On last week’s edition of Monday Night Raw, fans saw the inception of a new rivalry between the champion and the A-Lister. Gunther humiliated The Miz by attacking him on his show and saying that he is not on his level. As a result, the 43-year-old took offense to this and proved exactly why he is a deserving contender to challenge Gunther.
The match ended in a rather controversial way when Ivar and Bronson Reed climbed up the turnbuckle to hit their high-flying moves on Ricochet and The Miz, respectively. However, Miz dodged Reed’s ‘Tsunami’ and pinned him to get the win. Ivar was also close to winning, but Ricochet kicked out at the last count.
It will be exciting to see two of the greatest Intercontinental Champions of all time fight for the title that both of them made the number one title on the show. Will Miz defeat the dominant champion against all odds, or will Gunther once again annihilate his opponent and retain the title?
