The special program of the 25th anniversary of Monday Night RAW did not remain without titular changes. During the special edition of the WWE show, The Miz was crowned as the new Intercontinental champion of the company.
Miz’s victory came after defeating the now former champion Roman Reigns. The same saw as the actor also took a crucial moment in the final seconds, because after Reigns hit an unprotected corner, was surprised with a Skull Crushing Finale that put an end to the game.
With this victory Miz reaches his eighth reign with the title, remaining as the second with more reigns, having one less than the veteran Chris Jericho. This change also occurs less than a week of the Royal Rumble event, so Reigns and Miz exchange roles in the real battle, one entering now as the new champion while the other leaves behind his first reign as Intercontinental champion.
