This rivalry began quite some time before, back during the first season of NXT when it was known as a competition where the winner would get a WWE contract. Miz was Bryan’s pro on the season, meaning that Bryan had to follow Miz’s lead and advice.
Miz thought that Bryan didn’t respect him throughout his time as a mentor to him. Things between the two heightened when Bryan replaced Miz on Team WWE at ‘SummerSlam’ when Team WWE took on The Nexus.
With the aid of Alex Riley, who Miz was the pro for on the second season of NXT, Miz and Bryan continued to attack one another until the September 6 episode of ‘Raw’ when Bryan challenged Miz for the title, to which Miz would accept.
