17. Tonight’s Raw Main Event To Feature A Title Match That Was Originally Scheduled To Take Place At Extreme Rules 2017
In the main event of tonight’s episode of Raw, “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose will defend the Intercontinental Championship against the former 6 time Intercontinental Champion, The Miz.
Below is what WWE posted regarding this match:
In a bout originally slated for WWE Extreme Rules, The Lunatic Fringe defends his Intercontinental Title against The A-Lister Monday night, live on Raw. Ambrose’s title reign began at The Miz’s expense on SmackDown LIVE back in January, and The A-Lister has since been consumed by his desire to reclaim his prize and become a seven-time Intercontinental Champion. When Co-Acting GM Ambrose prevented Miz from disqualifying his own opponent, Finn Bálor, last week on Monday night — a move that would prove disastrous for The A-Lister — Miz interfered in Ambrose’s main event battle with Bray Wyatt, helping The Eater of Worlds put away the unstable Superstar. After costing the champion a match heading into tonight’s title defense and continuing the brutality after the bell, for good measure, has The Miz gained a necessary edge?
