SmackDown's 900th episode this past week was full of surprises, but the biggest shock of the night was when The Miz defeated Dolph Ziggler to recapture the Intercontinental Championship. 

This happened just five days before Ziggler was scheduled to face Sami Zayn for a dual brand match with the title on the line. 

This then meant that The Miz stepped into the match instead and it took Dolph Ziggler completely off the card for tonight's event.

NoDQ.com are reporting that the decision to give the Intercontinental Championship to The Miz was a last minute decision that was made as late as Monday night. 

It seems that WWE thought that Sami Zayn would get a much better reaction in Toronto if he was up against a heel superstar rather than a face. 

Given that Zayn is Canadian, it would be considered the wrong decision to put him up against a fan favourite like Dolph Ziggler. 


The new plan states that WWE want Sami Zayn to go over in his native state so that he can then take the Intercontinental Championship over to Raw. 

This then means that almost by default the Cruiserweight Championship could be heading over to SmackDown. Every match at Survivor Series has brand dominance stipulations attached apart from the Brock Lesnar and Goldberg match. 

This means that Survivor Series could see some major changes for WWE if the planned stipulations are followed though on.
