WWE RAW REPORT: A FLAIR FOR THE DRAMATIC, DOES THE TITLE REIGN END NEXT WEEK?, AN ULTIMATUM, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2021-02-22 22:59:00

We begin with a look back at the Elimination Chamber from last night when Drew McIntyre successfully defended the WWE Championship only to be outsmarted by Miz who had Bobby Lashley attack Drew to allow Miz to successfully cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase.

We are in St. Petersburg, Florida and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Samoa Joe, and Byron Saxton.

John Morrison is in the ring with a lot of balloons and he introduces the new WWE Champion, the Miz.

Miz welcomes everyone to MizTV . . . Champions Edition.  Miz asks how do you like him now?  Sixteen years ago, I set foot inside a WWE ring for the first time and people said I would be fired within three months.  Sixteen years later I stand in the ring on the flagship show in the WWE as WWE Champion.  All of the top superstars of his generation have come and gone and I am still here standing.  I have taken them out.  Batista and John Cena.  You name them and they don't stand up to me.  Triple H, Bobby Lashley, Daniel Bryan, and Edge do not stand up to his star power and his attitude.

Speaking of Edge, if you want to play high stakes poker, here is my Royal Flush.  I am the Babe Ruth of WWE.  I told Drew that I would cash in and beat him and that is what I did.  Everyone thought they knew what would happen on the Road to Wrestlemania, but the Miz put up a roadblock.  Miz says he is the only two time grand slam champion in the history of the business.  That means I have held every title on Raw mutliple times.  I hold this title because I deserve it.  I did not ask for your respect, I demanded it.

The music for the Hurt Business plays and Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring followed by Montel Vontavious Porter.

Porter says on behalf of the Hurt Business, he wants to congratulate Miz on his victory.  Porter says you omitted the part where Bobby Lashley absolutely wrecked and destroyed Drew McIntyre to allow you to cash in the briefcase for the title.

Miz says he was getting there and he wants to thank them.  Miz tells them they can celebrate if they want because Miz and Morrison have a lot of celebrating to do.  

Porter reminds Miz of their arrangement.  Morrison cost Bobby his title.  The deal was that if Lashley helps you, he gets the first title match.

Miz says he agreed to a title match, but he never said when.  Miz says he has appearances, a new season of Miz and Mrs, Fastlane, and Wrestlemania.  He has a lot of stress.  Miz says there is no time.

Porter says there is no time, but when you mentioned who you passed, you mentioned Bobby Lashley.  

Miz says he never said it.

Lashley tells Miz they have a deal and he has an hour to make their deal work.  

Riddle joins Lucha House Party in the back and Riddle thanks them for having his back.  Riddle says he got his first win in War Zone.  Dorado says he is talking about winning the United States Title.  Riddle says he likes the eagle on his title belt and he is going to call it Travis.  Riddle gets on his scooter and heads to the ring.
