Cleveland is the new city of champions — it is home to the 2016 NBA Champion Cavaliers and Team Blue’s own Intercontinental Champion, The Miz. It’s also home to where fellow Ohio native Dolph Ziggler may have just made the biggest, and last, mistake of his career.
Accompanied by Maryse, Miz first berated his fellow Clevelanders, disparaging all of them (with the exception of his own parents who were in attendance) and the city before turning his attention to Ziggler’s parents who were also in the audience. When The A-Lister looked as if he was about to belittle them and their son, The Showoff inevitably interrupted.
The Miz laid into Ziggler and then said he would only give Ziggler one last chance at the Intercontinental Championship, but only on one condition — The Showoff must put his career on the line. Ziggler made a passionate plea and then, finally, after clearly reaching his breaking point, accepted the merciless offer for No Mercy.
