Tonight saw the historic 900th episode of Smackdown and it opened with a bang as Dolph Ziggler defended his Intercontinental Championship against the Miz.

The two have shared a very personal rivalry in recent months and with the title set to be defended on Sunday night at Survivor Series, everyone was interested to find out who will head into the event as champion.

With the Miz finally claiming his rematch clause against Ziggler, he had a chance to advance to Survivor Series.

It was a chance that he would capitalise on as Miz emerged victorious in the end to move on to face RAW's Sami Zayn on Sunday.

Miz and Ziggler put on another great match as they have done for the last few months, but once again it all ended in controversial circumstances.

With the Spirit Squad down at ringside and a helping hand once again from Maryse, Ziggler can feel a little hard done by now that his championship reign has ended.

With Ziggler having Miz in a pinning situation only for Maryse to reverse it for him and her husband to get the win, it means another controversial ending.

Despite that, Miz will now move onto Survivor Series where he will have to fight to keep the belt on Smackdown.

A loss for Miz on Sunday will not only see him lose the title, it will also see Smackdown lose the title to RAW.

Fans are under the impression that Zayn is vying for a move to Smackdown so could a title reign bring him to brand blue?
