In the night the Elimination Chamber Pay Per View ended with The Miz, who, surprisingly, collected the briefcase and won the title of WWE Champion. Drew McIntyre had initially won the Elimination Chamber which saw him protagonist with 5 other wrestlers, but at the end of the match Bobby Lashley intervened who literally destroyed The Scottish Psychopath and who contributed to the victory of the title of Mr.
Money in the Bank The Miz. During the last episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, the well-known colleague Dave Meltzer tried to explain the reasons for this sensational twist on the WWE Championship. Here are his words: "This title change is just a step for the next challenges, I believe that Drew McIntyre will resume the title either at the next Fastlane Pay per View or maybe even in a particular episode of Monday Night Raw.
Personally (unlike what Bryan Alvarez says) I don't think WWE will give the title back to Drew right away."

During the show, Meltzer also talked about what Vince McMahon's company might have in mind for Wrestlemania 37 and plans for the WWE Championship.
Regarding Drew McIntyre's future, Meltzer clarified: "I think everyone knows that winning the title, they definitely will. You just have to figure out when Drew will win and maybe he will first challenge Sheamus for the title and then Bobby Lashley or maybe in the opposite order, you just have to understand how.
I think WWE has given the title to The Miz because he is a Heel who bothers, he knows how to annoy the public and it will get to the point that the WWE Universe will not like this champion, I think this is the reason for this title change."
Meltzer then explained about The Miz that he doesn't rule out a Tag Team Match for Wrestlemania 37 that sees Bad Bunny and Damian Priest take on The Miz and John Morrison. The rivalry between Sheamus and McIntyre has been heating up in recent weeks.
Sheamus Brogue Kicked McIntyre a few weeks ago to officially start the feud. McIntyre fired back with a Claymore Kick of his own the Monday after that development. The two stars couldn't settle the score in the Elimination Chamber Match.
When Sheamus Brogue Kicked McIntyre in the Chamber, it looked like he was about to pin the champion. But a timely Phenomenal Forearm left fans wondering whether The Celtic Warrior could have earned a three count against McIntyre. Sheamus is clearly looking to answer that question once and for all.
