Report: The Miz not scheduled for WWE Championship match at WrestleMania 37

Feb 22, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

It looks like new WWE Champion The Miz may be dropping the title before WrestleMania 37.

As noted, Miz cashed in his Money In the Bank title shot on Drew McIntyre at last night’s WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, right after McIntyre retained in the WWE Title Chamber match, and right after Bobby Lashley attacked McIntyre and laid him out. MVP was seen talking with The Miz backstage earlier in the night, and Lashley had just lost the WWE United States Title to Riddle.

In an update, @Wrestlevotes has just reported that current plans do not have The Miz involved with the WWE Title match at WrestleMania 37. Furthermore, it was said that Lashley is currently scheduled to be involved in the WWE Title match at WrestleMania.

There’s no word yet on how WWE will get to this scenario at WrestleMania 37, but it’s possible that they do a title change at the Fastlane pay-per-view on March 21, or on an upcoming RAW episode. It’s likely that McIntyre will also factor into those plans, but that was not mentioned in the new Wrestlevotes report. The report cautioned that there is a lot of misinformation around WrestleMania season each year, but this is what a source is reporting as of today, the day after Elimination Chamber.

It was previously reported that The Miz and John Morrison were scheduled for a WrestleMania tag team match against Damian Priest and WWE 24/7 Champion Bad Bunny. There is no word yet on if this is still in the plans, and if it will factor into the WWE Title chase.

We should have a better idea of potential Fastlane and WrestleMania 37 plans after tonight’s RAW.

Stay tuned for more.

    Misinformation is a good thing, having the upcoming card be leaked every year just ruins any hype for the event. I’m actually excited to see the direction this goes & I have no problem if Lashley finally becomes the champion.

    After the attack by Lashley (and the super secret – but “caught” on video – meeting between MVP and Miz) with Miz cashing in and winning, I figured the set-up would be that Lashley would help The Miz in exchange for a title match sometime. Lashley wins title and faces Drew at WM. Good storyline and hopefully gives us a good match at WM.

    All we need now is a good story to get Drew into the match at WM – triple threat at FastLane? Or do they just say that since he won chamber match that he should be #1 contender after Lashley gets his match?

    You don’t need a freaking insider to know where this is going. The Miz really doesn’t fit in the main event picture when there are so many better options. It was a tool to build up Lashley/Mcintyre. They need to go all in on Lashley because the dude’s been awesome for years.

  4. What? says:

    @Brian: They could go the “he won the Chamber” route, the nebulously enforced rematch clause route or the revenge for the post-match attack route. With everything they’ve been telegraphing, the odds are better than 50-50 that he’s involved somehow.
