There was a historic moment that aired on the WWE Network last night, as The Miz cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase to become a two-time WWE Champion.
Unquestionably, there is no doubt that the A-Lister deserves another run as the champion on the red brand, and the timing could be something that makes sense. But, is it only a matter of time before Drew McIntyre wins the WWE Championship back? Or could there be something else in store for the Scot at WrestleMania this year?
WWE News: McIntyre Has Score To Settle With Bobby Lashley
Bobbly Lashley was certainly the superstar to watch at the Elimination Chamber last night. The CEO of the Hurt Business lost his US Championship to Riddle earlier in the night, and after footage of Miz and MVP talking aired, it looked likely that something was on the cards. Lashley’s attack on McIntyre to hand the title to Miz not only ended McIntyre’s reign, but could have also kickstarted his own massive story with Mania firmly in sight.
Lashley has been calling out Brock Lesnar for as long as anybody can remember, and there is now a serious chance that we could get Lashley and Lesnar in the same match at Mania, along with McIntyre to make a compelling triple threat with the championship on the line.
WWE News: McIntyre Wins Title Back With Fans
The one thing that has been missing throughout the McIntyre reigns as champion has been fans. It has been disappointing to say the least, as the WWE Universe would have been behind McIntyre throughout both of his runs. There is a strong feeling that the Scot will reclaim his title at Mania, where fans are likely to be in attendance.
It may not be the moment it would have been 12 months ago, but it will certainly be something that fans are going to remember for a long time to come if he does pick up a third title in a huge match. There is also the possibility that The Miz doesn’t event go on to face McIntyre at Mania, which could open up a huge spot for another star on the red brand. There is certainly an interest in a number of the up-and-coming stars, while you would be hard-pressed to see fans against Cesaro possibly coming over to Raw and challenging Miz for the title.
