After getting relegated to the pre-show at Summerslam, the Miz looks to defend his Intercontinental Championship at No Mercy. Thing is, we don’t know yet who his opponent is. That’s slightly absurd. If he doesn’t defend the title for two straight PPVs, then something is clearly wrong. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
But who can he face, though? Here are some guesses.
Matt & Jeff Hardy
If WWE wants to go the easy route, then they can have a rematch between Miz and Jeff Hardy. After all, the A-Lister did cheat to retain against Hardy. In case they haven’t forgotten, this is an easy one to arrange.
For an even spicier arrangement, they can throw Matt into the mix. A Triple Threat revents disqualifications from the Miztourage, but it also allows them to straight up interfere. It also raises more interesting questions.
Do the brothers team up against the Intercontinental Champion? Will they duke it out and let the better man win? Can you freebird a singles title?
Miz has survived multi-man matches before, so it’s not out of the question for him to weasel his way into one should he be faced with both Hardys. Remember how he stole the win at Extreme Rules two years ago? Expect a finish like that should this be the case.
