Dolph Ziggler def. Intercontinental Champion The Miz (Title vs. Career Match)

With his career on the line, Ziggler fought with heart from the opening bell, wasting no time in going right after the champion. However, The A-Lister employed a ruthless attack to take control of the match, grounding the fiery Showoff. Miz reveled in getting the upper hand, taunting SmackDown Live GM Daniel Bryan, who he demanded a contract renegotiation from before the match.

The champion’s showboating gave Ziggler an opening to get back in the fight, unleashing a torrent of offense that nearly won him the match. The Miz resorted to desperate tactics, attempting to use the ropes and pull his challenger’s tights for leverage during pinfall attempts, even exposing the top turnbuckle and sending Ziggler crashing into it, but was unsuccessful in retiring The Showoff.

The Miz targeted his right leg, but Ziggler survived the Figure-Four Leglock and more, rallying back to his feet and connecting with a Zig Zag. Maryse and Ziggler’s former Spirit Squad teammates tried to end The Showoff’s career once and for all, but were thrown out of the arena for their meddling. That allowed Ziggler to clock Miz with a superkick to win the title and keep his career on track.
