The Miz yet again felt the wrath of Shinsuke Nakamura & Sami Zayn
Last week on SmackDown LIVE, The Miz became the first Superstar to feel what Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura was capable of with Sami Zayn guiding him as his spokesperson. Tonight, The A-Lister arrived with a challenge for WWE’s Rockstar: Defend the Intercontinental Title against him at WWE Clash of Champions so that Miz could regain the title that he believes he once again made prestigious.
Arriving by his lonesome, Zayn scoffed at the notion that Nakamura or the Intercontinental Title would ever need to associate with Miz to gain prestige and claimed The A-Lister was soft. A laser-sharp Miz darted out of the ring to ”beat some respect” into Sami, but Shinsuke immediately blindsided and pummeled The Miz, laying him out for the second straight week with multiple Kinshasas as a giddy Zayn commented on the microphone in euphoria and held Miz down for the attack.
Zayn kept harping on Nakamura’s artistry. Clearly the picture they’re aiming to paint is pain.
