There are always upsets during awards season, but the third Mizzie Awards ended in a very different kind of upset for The Miz when Seth Rollins and Finn Bálor crashed The A-Lister’s snarky ceremony and defeated him in a Handicap Match that pitted the two former titleholders against Miz and his Miztourage.
Miz seemed to think he was in for an easy night with his 3-on-2 advantage, but if anything was enough to get Rollins & Finn on the same page after their weeks of one-upsmanship, it was The Miz. The A-Lister had plenty of unfiltered fighting words for his opponents before the bell, mocking Seth’s impressive-if-fruitless performance from two weeks ago and Bálor’s failure to win back the Universal Title, and the impromptu team responded in kind.
Of course, their win wasn’t seamless — Bálor tagged himself in right as Rollins was getting ready to roll, and Rollins reciprocated when Finn set Miz up for the Coup de Grâce — but it was enough. Rollins stole Bálor’s pin over The Miz to hand them the victory, after which Raw General Manager Kurt Angle emerged to inform The Miz he had decided on The A-Lister’s WrestleMania match after all: A Triple Threat Match against Rollins and Bálor for the Intercontinental Championship.
