The Miz, a popular WWE Superstar, won the Money in the Bank briefcase recently. He won the MITB case at the WWE Hell in a Cell PPV which was held last weekend. He can now challenge any champion that he wants for their title. Although many people have won the MITB title in the past, only a few of them were successful in actually winning the title that they were competing for.
The Miz on Winning the MITB Case
The Miz recently teased that he might cash in against either Orton or Roman Reigns. "This contract now is in the hands of a person that will utilize everything this allows," Miz said.
"This allows me anytime, anywhere, to go after the WWE Champion or go after the Universal Champion. SmackDown, RAW, it doesn't matter. Pay-per-view, anywhere, anytime." The Miz also spoke about Tucker's recent heel turn with John Morrison.
Tucker turned heel against Otis. Morrison spoke about how uncertain the world of professional wrestling is and how it makes professional wrestling special. Miz then recalled how he won the WWE Title in 2010. He won the title by beating Orton after cashing in his MITB case that he won.
"Do you know why I was destined to win tonight? Do you know where we are?," Miz asked. "This is the Amway Center. This is where I cashed in my first Money In the Bank and defeated Randy Orton. I remember walking down the halls after beating Randy Orton and winning my first WWE Championship, everyone clapping for me, everyone patting me on the back, saying, 'You know, you did it, great job, you're the next guy.'
" "Who knows where we'll cash in, could be tomorrow on Monday Night RAW," he said. He also posted this on social media. "#AndNew Mr. Money in the Bank! When I say I'm going to do something - I DO IT!!!!
Just remember, history has a way of repeating itself, and so far, step 1 is complete. You know what's next...," he wrote on Instagram. The Miz was at one time one of WWE’s top heels. He hasn’t been part of any major main even storyline for quite some time.
His rivalry with Shane McMahon about a year ago was one that brought him back under the spotlight. Since then, The Miz has performed very well and might even end up winning a title soon.
