The Bálor Club def. Intercontinental Champion The Miz & The Miztourage
It’s been a rough couple of weeks for The Miz. He’s not on the WrestleMania magazine cover even though he’s approaching the record of longest cumulative reign as Intercontinental Champion. He has to defend his title in a Triple Threat against both Finn Bálor and Seth Rollins at WrestleMania, where he doesn’t have to be pinned or submitted to be dethroned. And now, he and The Miztourage have taken a loss to Bálor and his good brothers Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson in a Six-Man Tag Team Match.
About the only thing he could boast at the end of the night was that he and The Miztourage put a solid hurting on Bálor, isolating him from the rest of The Bálor Club — the OGBC, if you will — making The Extraordinary Man look distressingly human. Karl Anderson turned the tide, and Finn re-entered the fray when the time was right. Again, The Miztourage paid dividends by softening him up for The Miz, but The A-Lister’s understudies ended up being his downfall, as Finn launched Miz into an apron-perched Curtis Axel and rolled him up for three.
The Miztourage retaliated with a post-match beatdown and got the upper hand on the entire Bálor Club, but Rollins, who had been scouting from commentary, dispatched all three when they went to drop Finn. Miz perhaps can bend the opposition to his will with two friends on his side. At WrestleMania, however, he’ll be in the ring with two enemies and no help in sight.
