Last night at WWE Elimination Chamber, The Miz shocked the world when he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Drew McIntyre to become WWE Champion for the second time. Samoa Joe was at ringside in the broadcast booth and thought The Miz nailed his cash in.
Joe sat down with Sportkeeda's own Rick Ucchino today to talk about all things WWE. When the conclusion of last night's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view came up, Joe admitted he was surprised that The Miz pulled the trigger when he did.
"Well, I thought that Miz wouldn't pull the trigger, but I thought it was just because of apprehension. But, you know, like I said last night, The Miz went out; he pulled the trigger at the absolute perfect time. You know that the champ was down in very, very bad shape after a grueling Elimination Chamber match. You know The Miz, It's a wonderful thing when you see somebody use the Money in the Bank contract to its absolute full effectiveness, and Miz managed to nail it."
Samoa Joe says what to expect from WWE RAW tonight
