After two consecutive, if disputed, non-title victories over United States Champion Sheamus, The Miz will challenge for The Celtic Warrior’s title at Hell in a Cell, WWE.com has learned.
Along with his stunt double, Damien Mizdow, the self-proclaimed Hollywood A-lister has been a thorn in Sheamus’ side for several weeks. On the Oct. 6 edition of Raw, Miz rolled up Sheamus for the win moments after the champion Brogue Kicked an interfering Mizdow off the ring apron. Mizdow’s involvement in a rematch a week later again led to a victory for Miz, this time via count-out.
Now that he has the seemingly endless support of the onetime Damien Sandow, can Miz topple Sheamus on Oct. 26 and claim his third United States Championship? Or will the double-tough Irishman, unquestionably irked by Miz and Mizdow’s antics, flatten the Moneymaker like never before?
