WWE TLC 2020 kicked off with one of the best openers in recent memory, as WWE Champion Drew McIntyre went one-on-one with AJ Styles in a TLC match. The match saw several brutal spots as both the Superstars left no stones unturned to keep eachother down.
Things took a massive turn as Mr. Money in the Bank The Miz and John Morrison came out to the ring during the final moments of the match. The Miz then officially cashed-in his MITB contract, making it a triple-threat TLC match.
With both Drew McIntyre and AJ Styles knocked out, The Miz looked set to walk out as the new WWE Champion. Unfortunately for him, Omos stepped in and pulled him off the ladder, and then went on to chase John Morrison out to the back.
Following that, Drew McIntyre, AJ Styles, and The Miz all tussled out on top of multiple leaders to claim the WWE title.
Ultimately, it was Drew McIntyre who got the better of the two and following a Claymore to The Miz, climbed up and retained his WWE Championship. With that, The Miz lost his MITB contract in what was only the fifth failed MITB cash-in in WWE history.
