Extreme Rules is less than two weeks away and tonight's episode of RAW saw a new title match added to the event.
The Miz is now set to defend his Intercontinental Championship in a fatal-4-way match against three men who all deserve a run with the title.
Not an easy path
In a backstage segment tonight, we saw the new controlling powers of Monday Night Raw, Shane and Stephanie McMahon reveal that the Miz would defend his title in a triple threat match.

Challenged with taking on both Kevin Owens and Cesaro, The Miz did not seem happy with the initial decision ... Enter Sami Zayn.
Zayn made the claim that they should give the fans what they want and reminded everyone of the incredible reaction he received when he lifted the title belt last week on RAW.
This led to a match being made later in the night where Zayn would have to defeat the champion in order to earn himself a place in the match at Extreme Rules.
Zayn would go on to win against the Miz and earn his spot at Extreme Rules, but then one of the four men almost talked his way out of the title match.
Unsurprisingly, Kevin Owens' mouth almost got him in trouble again as he confronted Shane McMahon and was placed in a match against Zack Ryder with the winner earning a place in the fatal-4-way match.
Owens would go on to win and now the title match is set.
A new champion?
The Miz's Intercontinental Championship reign has been largely unremarkable and it could be possible that he could be set to drop the title at Extreme Rules.
Cesaro has been on the cusp of a major push for what seems like years now while Zayn is one of the most popular and talented stars on the roster.
A win for Kevin Owens would make him a three time Intercontinental Champion and would arguably be the least popular decision that WWE could make.
