Earlier tonight on the 25th Anniversary Episode of Monday Night Raw, The Miz defeated Roman Reigns to capture his 8th Intercontinental Championship.
Shortly thereafter, the new Intercontinental Champion shot a video for his Twitter, in which he declared he would be heading toward the Manhattan Center from the Barclays Center, because the new Intercontinental Champion is in demand.

Shortly thereafter, he did just that. PWInsider.com reported that The Miz entered and cut a promo saying that he watched Shawn Michaels vs. Marty Jannetty for the Intercontintal title. He said that for the last two years, he has fought to make the belt relevant again and promised to win the Royal Rumble and go on to headline Wrestlemania as the Intercontinental champion.

WWE also posted on their YouTube video an interview with Cathy Kelly and The Miz, in which she asks the new Intercontinental Champion about his monumental win. The A-Lister says that he has made the championship prestigious and honorable, and that this match would be one that is talked about for the next 25 years.
