WWE Raw Preview here and we’re all set for the Miz’s first WWE Championship defense in ten years, and it’s been built up for him to be destroyed by Bobby Lashley.
We’re also going to be welcoming back Drew McIntyre, who may have a few things to saw to the Miz and Bobby Lashley. Bur Sheamus wants a piece of his former best friend, so it could get a little feisty.
Sounds like we’re in for a good time, so let’s dive in.
Sheamus wants McIntyre
After losing his opportunity to win the WWE Championship one on one, and then in the Elimination Chamber, Sheamus still wants to take his frustrations out on McIntyre and we can’t blame him.
Though it wasn’t McIntyre’s fault, he’s got to take them out on someone.
We’re sure the Miz was behind that entire thing (if WWE Creative goes this route) and we’re sure he’ll get his at Sheamus’ hands at some point.
Until then, McIntyre will face the brunt of the Celtic Warrior’s fury, and we expect it to spill over into another match to cause it to end in a No Contest or No Disqualification.
The Miz retains
This has the potential to be a fun match, and it’s been built up for Lashley to destroy the Miz as he should. Lashley’s a monster and should have a serious championship run.
The problem is, though the Miz may be the champion, many view him as an interim to set up a WrestleMania storyline and that’s been reportedly leaked.
But he’s a great heel and who better to play up the angle than him by retaining tonight when McIntyre interferes to get at Lashley.
It’ll set up his and Lashley’s feud that will probably culminate at WrestleMania for the WWE Championship.
Sheamus will also be involved as he’ll want a piece of everybody, and it’ll set up a mini feud between him, Miz, Lashley, and McIntyre.
It’s the perfect gimmick and the WWE loves gimmick feuds and matches as of late to get the most star power on the screen at once.
To be fair, the Miz does deserve a chance to have a legitimate title run, but everything he’s done with the MITB through now has been very rough to watch at times.
It feels like it was a well laid plan that went through a thousand revisions and ended up being a confusing and not entertaining. He definitely deserves better than the material he’s been handed.
With all that being said, we’re sure the in ring action will continue to be the best part of the show, and we can’t wait to see what all’s in store for us tonight.
How do you see tonight’s championship match play out? Let WWE Raw Preview know in the comments below and we’ll see you tonight.
