The Miz vs Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship was confirmed in the previous week of RAW when the latter beat Brawn Strowman and became the number one contender for the prestigious title. The title match was scheduled to take place at 9 PM EST, however, when it was Miz’s turn to get to the ring, he complained about having some stomach issues backstage. Bobby Lashley would return backstage and threaten MIZ before Adam Pearce rescheduled the match for 10 PM EST.
At 10 PM, The Miz requested Lashley and MVP to conduct the match at Wrestlemania but the plea was rejected by the latter. As soon as the bell rang, The Miz took the belt and ran away, Lashley won the game via countout.
Backstage, Shane Mcmahon told MVP and Lashley that there would a Championship match tonight or he would consider stripping The Miz off the WWE Title and handing it to Lashley by the end of the night.
Later, Adam Pearce informed MVP and Lashley that if Miz doesn’t show up for the match he would be stripped of the title. When Miz and Lashley were inside the ring, McMahon revealed that the WWE Championship match is going to be a Lumberjack match. Miz tried to get disqualified by attacking Lashley with the belt but couldn’t do that successfully. The match didn’t go for too long with Lashley making Miz tap out for The Hurt Lock to become the new WWE Champion.
