This week on Monday Night Raw, during their segment with Elias, The Miztourage announced that The Miz would be returning to Raw next week when the show rolls into the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee, and according to the rumor mill, WWE has big plans for him too.
The Miz has not been seen on WWE television since the Raw after Survivor Series. This was where Roman Reigns successfully defeated him to become the Intercontinental Champion for the first time in his career.
The Awesome One was then sent through the announce table by The Big Dog and the rest of The Shield and he hasn't been seen since. This was a storyline angle to cover up his departure to film WWE Studios' The Marine 6 movie with Becky Lynch and WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.
Now the filming for the movie has finished, The Miz is able to return to the Monday Night Raw roster and compete in the ring once more, and if reports are to be believed, he's going to be inserted right back into a very interesting storyline.
According to Cageside Seats, the former Intercontinental Champion will get his chance to win the title back off Reigns, as he will be re-entering the Intercontinental title picture when he returns to Raw next Monday at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee.
The man himself reacted on Twitter to the news that he would be returning to the WWE next week, saying: "You’ve all suffered enough. Now it’s time for a real man, a real champ, a REAL star to return. Next week, The Miz is back on #Raw!"
The Miz is yet to have his Intercontinental Championship rematch since he lost the title to The Big Dog on the Raw after Survivor Series, so this will likely be how WWE reinserts him back into the frame. Considering he's one of the most talented talkers on the microphone in the company today and has amazing in-ring skills, he deserves the spot.
The Awesome One has already fired a shot at Reigns following being named Wrestler of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine, as he said in a tweet: "U dont become wrestler of the year by wearing ur own merch shirt or tactical vests. U become WOTY by day after day overdelivering on everything you do. When I come back, RAW will be MY show AGAIN! IC is MINE.
"Thx @rollingstone for this honor. Sorry Roman, maybe nxt year Big Dog."
It wouldn't be surprising to see The Miz be given his Intercontinental Championship rematch next week on Raw, where you would think he would regain the title in order to make Reigns free for his predicted Universal title match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 later this year.
