Bobby Lashley Vs. The Miz Rematch Set For WWE Raw
A rematch for the gold
One week after dropping the WWE championship to Bobby Lashley in the main event of Monday Night Raw, The Miz is receiving a rematch.
WWE's write-up of the match reads, "Last week on Raw, Bobby Lashley conquered The Miz in dominant fashion to become the new WWE Champion in a Lumberjack Match.
"Tonight, the All Mighty titleholder will kick off his reign in a rematch against The A-Lister. Can Miz find a way to overcome the intense force of nature? Or will it simply be the first stop on the All Mighty Road to WrestleMania? Don’t miss Monday Night Raw, tonight at 8/7 C on USA."
Miz won the championship on February 21, after cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase on battered WWE champion Drew McIntyre at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. Lashley compounded a tired McIntyre's predicament by further beating him down just prior to the cash-in.
Subsequently, Lashley confronted new champion Miz on the following night's Raw, demanding a title match in exchange for his help. The match took place the following week where, after many false starts, Lashley captured the WWE title for the first time.
