Ladies and gentlemen! Dean Ambrose is your new Intercontinental Champion! What a way to kickstart 2017!
...
Maryse slaps Ambrose near ringside and referee sees it as a DQ. Ambrose holds his hand and stops him from ending the match. He tells the ref to send her backstage and the ref obliges. Thank god! 

Miz looked to cash in on the confusion by hitting Ambrose with the IC title. Pinfall. 1-2! Kickout! Holy Sh**! Ambrose kicked out yet again! Miz goes for the Skull Crushing Finale, but Ambrose reverses into the Dirty Deeds. Pinfall! 1-2-3! 

And we have a new champion!
...
He recuperates and takes Miz down with the Lunatic Lariat! It's time for Air Ambrose to take off and it does with style. Ambrose takes Miz down with the Topa Suicida. 
...
Dean Ambrose perched up on the top rope and Maryse interferes again as she tries to push him off.  Ambrose jumps off the top rope, but gets caught in the Skull Crushing Finale. Pinfall. 1-2! Nearfall! Ambrose kicks out at 2 and a half! 
...
We're back from the break and Miz is seen rampaging towards Ambrose in the corner, who sends him straight out to the mat. The Lunatic Fringe goes up to the top turnbuckle and floors Miz with the flying elbow to the outside. Back in the ring, Ambrose stuns Miz with his trademark lariat. He looks to capitalize the momentum, but Miz stops him in his tracks by reversing the Bulldog into a Figure Four Leg Lock. He hyperextends his leg and looks to transition into the leg lock, but Ambrose fights out of it but sees himself caught in the Skull Crushing Finale position.

Ambrose somehow reverses it into a swinging neck breaker. Pinfall, 1-2! Kickout! 
...
...
The action spills to the outside as Ambrose sends Miz crashing over the announce table. Maryse does what she does best: distract! The champion took advantage and executed a wrecking ball dropkick to take control of the match as we go into a commercial break.
