The Miz , despite its detractors, managed to elevate the Intercontinental Championship last year to a levels that we had not seen in a long time. This 2017, after recovering it again from the hands of Dean Ambrose in June, the fighter continues to play a perfect role as a rude champion. However, we do not see a defense on PPV from WWE Great Balls of Fire , back in July. WWE SummerSlam (2017), the company’s second WrestleMania, did not contain any bout by that scepter. And this dynamic could continue in WWE No Mercy (2017) .
According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter , the original plan was to face Miz with Jason Jordan on the September 24 PPV . Kurt Angle’s “son” should have quickly entered this orbit after his debut, but as we know, he has been busy at other times; see serve as good sparring for important names like Finn Balor , John Cena or Roman Reigns . So, this clash is in the air, because WWE has done nothing for now to start a rivalry a short week of the realization of No Mercy.
Perhaps the injury of Samoa Joe upset the above-mentioned plans , as it was rumored that “The Samoana Submission Machine” could be the next opponent of Miz. Coincidentally or not, WWE has only stipulated a televised defense of the IC, which took place in the Raw episode of September 4, with Jeff Hardy as an aspirant . Undoubtedly, Joe’s appeal would have given another plus of prestige to the leash and the imminent PPV.
Jordan does not keep a bright recent credential considering his defeats, but could be given a chance as a reward for his good performances. That yes, it would suppose a last-minute rivalry with little substance of means . We’ll see if WWE decides to leave us without another IC defense under PPV. We will have to be attentive on Monday to the red show to leave doubts.
