The Emperor Defeated! Lately, Roman Reigns has fought tooth and nail to defend his Intercontinental Championship. Title defense after title defense, Reigns proved to be stronger than ever. There was one problem. The Miz returned. The Miz has been sending out messages that soon he’ll have his Intercontinental Championship back. He wanted his rematch. Reigns gave him his rematch. Can Roman continue to defend the title successfully?

From the beginning of the match to the end, Roman had to deal with the Miztourage. They would make Roman work three times as hard to keep the offense going. A Superman Punch did not prevent a Reigns from losing the title. It took a little cheating to do it. This is not the end for Roman. He can look forward to regaining the top title.

WWE.com has more on this historic night and Roman’s valiant effort below.

For a long time now, The Miz has delivered on his promises where the Intercontinental Championship is concerned. Raw 25 proved to be no different, as The A-Lister defeated Roman Reigns to begin an eighth reign with what is fast becoming his signature championship just hours after declaring for the Men’s Royal Rumble Match.

At first, however, it was all Reigns, who bounced Miz around the ring with impunity in a match he was dedicating to his cousin, Yokozuna. The Miztourage once again paid dividends for The Miz, giving The Awesome One the opening to turn the tide by throwing Reigns into the steel steps, aggravating The Big Dog’s shoulder in the process.

Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel proved persistent enough in their interference to get themselves thrown out by the referee, though not before they clambered onto the apron one last time, opening the door for Miz to hit a distracted Reigns with a Skull-Crushing Finale. Reigns kicked out, but when he whiffed on a Spear and went face-first into a turnbuckle that Miz had discreetly unbuckled earlier in the match, a second Skull-Crushing Finale was enough to put him down for the 1-2-3.

So Miz is champion again, and that several former Raw General Managers — John Laurinaitis, Eric Bischoff and William Regal — were in the building to witness Miz’s triumph was a treat. That Miz’s nemesis, current SmackDown GM Daniel Bryan, was among them, was the cherry on top.
