The words between these WWE superstars have heated up.
Those wrestlers are current WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns and former WWE Champion The Miz.
WWE has announced the first match for the 25 Anniversary episode of Monday Night Raw. The Miz, who returned on this week’s show after being off television for several weeks to film the Marine 6, will challenge Roman Reigns for the Intercontinental Title.
The Miz was drafted to the ECW brand in 2007 where he formed a partnership with John Morrison. Together, they won the WWE Tag Team Championship and World Tag Team Championship.
After being drafted to Raw in 2009, he won the United States Championship twice, tag team titles with John Cena, Damien Mizdow, and twice with Big Show, as well as the 2010 Raw Money in the Bank ladder match.
He cashed in his briefcase to win the WWE Championship in November 2010 and went on to hold for six months. He is also the third longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history by combined days, behind only Don Muraco and Pedro Morales.
If you recall, the biggest match of The Miz’s career was when defeated John Cena for the WWE Championship back at WrestleMania 27 in 2011 in the main event.
This marked the only time that WWE had booked The Miz in the main event of the biggest event of the year for the sports entertainment company.
Reigns signed by WWE in 2010 and reported to their developmental territory FCW.
He made his main roster debut in November 2012 alongside Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins as part of The Shield.
The group teamed together until June 2014, after which Reigns entered singles competition. Ever since the group split up, fans have turned on Reigns despite him being portrayed as a babyface.
He has had many accolades during his short time with the sports entertainment company.
Reigns is a three-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, a one-time United States Champion, a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion (with Rollins), the 2015 Royal Rumble winner and the 2014 Superstar of the Year.
Make no mistake about; Reigns is the guy in WWE. Since 2014, WWE has attempted to establish Reigns as their next "face of the company.”
Reigns had headlined multiple major WWE pay-per-view events, including the last three WrestleManias (31 lost to Seth Rollins, 32 beat Triple H and 33 when he defeated The Undertaker).

The 25 Anniversary episode of Monday Night Raw is slated to take place on January 22nd on the USA Network.
