From the WWE Rumor mill: Real reason why The Miz dropped the Intercontinental Championship to Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns captured the WWE Intercontinental Championship for the first time in his career this week...

What's the story?

Mike Johnson of PWInsider is reporting on the reason why the WWE Intercontinental Championship changed hands on Monday Night Raw last night.

This is potentially the same reason why Baron Corbin defeated Miz at Survivor Series too as it might be time for The Miz to film his next movie.

In case you didn't know...

While the Miz is possibly absent from WWE television in the near future, he will not completely be off of television as he is hosting the second season of MTV's The Challenge Champs v. Stars. The first of eight episodes will air tonight, November 21st.

The heart of the matter

A source told Johnson that Miz is potentially set to take time off to film the sixth instalment of The Marine franchise. Miz was the star of the past three in the series, and the final one included Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, Heath Slater, Naomi, and his wife Maryse.

After Monday Night Raw went off the air last night, The Shield would perform their patented triple powerbomb on The Miz through the announce table. Presumably, this was the way they could write The Miz off of television. Take a look at that footage from the WWE below:

What's next?

Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for further details on if the Miz is expected to take off an extended amount of time, as well as the details of the movie he's filming if that is the case.

Author's take

It'll be a bummer not being able to see one of the most entertaining wrestlers in the WWE for a few weeks, but duty calls (no Marine pun intended). The Miz has fast become one of my favourites in the company over the past couple of years.

Typically these WWE movies take five to six weeks to film. Thus, expect The Miz to return in time for the Royal Rumble.
