The Miz joined commentary for SmackDown LIVE’s main event as his fellow Elimination Chamber Match participants Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles prepared to rekindle their longstanding rivalry inside the ring.
From the start, The A-Lister openly criticized another Elimination Chamber competitor, Baron Corbin, for getting involved in his match with Ambrose last week, as The Lunatic Fringe and The Phenomenal One both looked to make a statement on The Road to WrestleMania.
Eventually, though, Miz’s bashing of Corbin backfired as The Lone Wolf joined him at the commentary desk. And as match’s intensity began to reach epic proportions, so did Miz and Corbin’s war of words. And in the final moments, their escalation led to them getting physical at ringside and becoming a distraction for Ambrose, who took both of them out, which led to Styles capitalize by hitting a Styles Clash on The Lunatic Fringe for the win.
After the contest, Miz and Corbin both got their licks in, first with Miz hitting the Skull-Crushing Finale on Ambrose and then Corbin taking out both Miz and Ambrose with End of Days as Corbin stood tall and jaw jacked with The Phenomenal One who continued to celebrate on the ramp.
