It has been 11 years since The Miz win the WWE title. However, Miz shockingly won the WWE Championship pay-per-view event last Sunday by chasing in the Money in the Bank briefcase on Drew McIntyre at WWE Elimination Chamber.
Following the fight this morning Bobby Lashley and MVP leaked the possible WWE storyline through their Twitter account. Before cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase, the 40-year-old was seen talking with MVP backstage.
Lashley tweeted, “Business…#WWEChamber.” And MVP tweeted, “Business as usual. #thehurtbusiness #awesomebusiness.”

These tweets led the fans to speculate that Lashley will fight the new champ for the WWE title, and 44-year-old Lashley will beat Miz. Thinking these tweets as future WWE titles, Fightful.com’s Jimmy Van tweeted, “I wouldn’t even wait for Fast Lane to do Miz vs. Lashley if that’s the plan. Just do it on Raw so that your WrestleMania build is longer than two weeks.”
Fox Sports’ WWE analyst Ryan Satin also expressed his thoughts; he wrote on Twitter, “Miz being WWE Champion now means Bad Bunny is currently in a feud with one of the top titleholders in the company.”

He added, “It seemed like Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre was the WWE title direction for WrestleMania, but then Miz threw everything out of whack by cashing in his Money in the Bank contract and winning the belt.
So, what do you think happens from now until Mania?”
An AWESOME strategy by @mikethemiz…

As Mizanin Won the WWE, he is on the road to WrestleMania. However, this might get changed if the predicted storyline becomes true.
Why did MVP help The Miz to win WWE Title?
On the other hand, Miz’s talking backstage with MVP was clearly an understanding that MVP and Lashley helped Miz to win the title in exchange for something in the future. MVP never does anything for free! So, tonight’s WWE Raw will be a “must-see” show to understand the storyline.
