After weeks of near misses against Raw’s most decorated Superstars, Jason Jordan powered past Elias, The Hardy Boyz and The Miztourage to send himself to WWE No Mercy, where he’ll challenge The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship.
Admittedly, however, the early MVP of the match was Elias, who showcased his intellect and athleticism in the early goings. And Jordan was nearly taken out of the high-stakes bout when The Miztourage and The Hardys — who occasionally fought each other in the match — administered a double Tower of Doom to the former SmackDown Tag Team Champion, and Elias almost stole the pin.
The Miz himself even got involved twice in an attempt to hand the match to The Miztourage, throwing Jordan into the crowd and breaking up a Jeff Hardy pinfall attempt after The Charismatic Enigma hit Curtis Axel with the Swanton Bomb.
And then, Jordan sprang again, catching The Axe Man in the Angle Slam-neckbreaker to punch his ticket to WWE No Mercy. The Miztourage quickly punched back, with all three members trouncing Jordan in short order before The Miz delivered some choice words to his upcoming challenger. He can have gold in his blood. It’ll take more than one win to put it around his waist.
