Family brings out both the best and worst in people. Tonight on Raw, it was confirmed that The Miz will battle Shane McMahon inside of a Steel Cage at the upcoming 2019 Money in the Bank pay-per-view. This match continues their feud from WrestleMania 35.
The match came about after The Best in the World attacked the A-Lister during his match with Bobby Lashley tonight on Raw. You can see a clip from that segment below:
Not even a move to Raw by The Miz was enough to stop Shane — “The Best in the World” — from gloating over his continued abuse of The A-Lister’s father; despite taking a chair to the torso from Miz on Night One of the Superstar Shake-up, Shane interfered in Miz’s match with Bobby Lashley to cost The A-Lister the bout and continued to mock Mr. Miz on the TitanTron as he rained cheap shots down on the former WWE Champion. Deciding that he had unfinished business with the former SmackDown LIVE Commissioner, Miz laid down the Steel Cage challenge, and the match was later accepted.
Strategy-wise, the stipulation is a risky one for The A-Lister. With its high walls, a Steel Cage seems to favor Shane’s daredevilry, at least on paper. But Shane would do well to avoid thinking that a win is a foregone conclusion. Even The Best in the World is only as good as his last match, and Shane didn’t so much win that WrestleMania brawl as escape with the victory. With Miz angry, motivated and putting on some of the best matches of his career, Shane may well end up ruing the day he found himself with nowhere to hide.
Honestly, I’m surprised that they are continuing this feud. I figured with The Miz coming to Raw and attacking Shane during his first night on the brand, that their feud would be over. I guess I was wrong! This could be a good one, though.
