At the last night’s WWE RAW, we got a new WWE champion, as Bobby Lashley finally put his hands on the belt. He would defeat The Miz, who cowardly tried to escape the battleground and preserve the title.
In other stories, Randy Orton is slowly losing his mind, while Drew McIntyre defeated Sheamus.
Lashley Wins the Belt, The Mizz Ashamed
We saw a back and forth affair between these two guys, yet not in the ring as expected, but outside. At first, The Miz wanted the match to be postponed for WrestleMania, but nobody had any desire to accept his proposal. He also complained about diarrhea and cramps, but everyone saw through his intentions.
Once he and Lashley finally got into the ring, the Mizz took the belt and ran away backstage, handing a countout triumph to the rival, but keeping the belt in his possession. This apparently made Vince McMahon a bit mad, and he interfered, forcing the Miz to have a proper fight.
The first man of the organization threatened The Miz with the title-stripp, and after bringing a few security guards, took the “champion” back into the ring. In a lumberjack match, Lashley swiftly took care of the business in the ring, winning via submission, but only after lumberjacks prevented The Miz from running away.
It seems that The Miz’s actions in the past have finally caught up with him, and his reign didn’t last for too long.
McIntyre Indicates his Comeback
The former champion, who lost to The Mizz at the Elimination Chamber, Drew McIntyre, quickly bounced back following his failure, defeating Sheamus via pinfall. This was the first match of the night, and it saw a lot of excitement. The battle began much before the official start, with the two guys trying to rip one another’s head.
The same continued inside the ring, but eventually, McIntyre won. He announced his attack on the title regardless of the champion, adding that whoever wins would have to watch his back.
Randy Orton had an appearance, and during his addressing, Alexa Bliss appeared on the monitor, causing another of the Viper’s vomiting attacks. She would create confusion in Orton’s head with footage of himself appearing on the monitor, saying that he is ready to face everything he did in the past.
It was a trigger for another disturbing experience for the Viper, who has trouble battling with all the ghosts from the past these days, and especially with Alexa Bliss’ intentions to hurt him.
