The Miz insists his Intercontinental Championship reign is “never-ending,” but Dolph Ziggler will look to prove otherwise when they clash over the prestigious title at WWE Backlash on Sunday, Sept. 11.

By hook or by crook, The Hollywood A-Lister has turned back one challenger after another, and he’s on track to be the champion for 160 days by the time WWE Backlash arrives. Though Miz’s means of retaining the title haven’t always been popular with the WWE Universe or even SmackDown LIVE management — General Manager Daniel Bryan set off the champion when he called him a “coward” on the Aug. 23 edition of Talking Smack — there is no denying his success.

Ziggler, on the other hand, will try to rebound from recent setbacks in high-stakes matches, most notably his failed attempt to dethrone WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose at SummerSlam. Never shy about his unreal athletic ability, The Showoff boasted of stealing the show “every damn night” with every chance he got. At WWE Backlash, the goal will not be to steal the show, but to win the title and silence any doubters, once and for all.

Which Superstar will leave SmackDown LIVE's first brand-exclusive pay-per-view with the Intercontinental Title around his waist? Watch the high-stakes championship match when WWE Backlash airs live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, Sept. 11, at 8 ET/5 PT.
