Miz is rewriting history with the Intercontinental Championship

What’s the story?

Well, it seems like some things just go hand-in-hand, and The Miz and the Intercontinental Championship is one of them.

It now turns out that the A-Lister has reached another massive milestone - surpassing Hall of Famer Don Muraco to write his name in the history books.

Miz is now in second place for most combined days as Intercontinental Champion, just 80 days shy of Pedro Morales.

In case you didn’t know…

Miz has started off this year on fire.

He was named Rolling Stone's Wrestler of the Year, he stars in Marine 6: Close Quarters which will be released this year, he and Maryse are expecting their first child very soon, and they'll also have their own TV show, Miz and Mrs, debuting soon.

Add to this winning back the Intercontinental Championship and earning a spot in the Elimination Chamber to give himself the chance to headline WrestleMania again in a match against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, and it's easy to see why Miz is one of the top names in WWE right now.

The heart of the matter

Well, Miz took to Instagram to reveal the milestone in style with a cryptic video that ended in true Miz style.

Another day, another milestone

Miz has now held the Intercontinental Championship for a combined 542 days, surpassing WWE Hall of Famer Don Muraco and catching up on Pedro Morales' 619 days.

The Miz had recently regained the title for his eighth reign, and one which put him second on another chart - he's now one behind Chris Jericho's record nine reigns with the title.

What’s next?

Well, The Miz was off of television for a short time, but you'd never know it. Whenever he comes back, he slots straight back in, delivering phenomenal promos and solid in-ring work.

The A-Lister will be one of six men in this year's Elimination Chamber looking to become the number one contender for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship at WrestleMania.

Author’s take

Miz holding the Intercontinental Championship just seems right. He's a complete throwback heel who merges the old school with a new school with his promos and in-ring work, and I'd say he elevates the title and it gives him immense credibility.

The A-lister has shown that he can mix it up with the best of them, having quality rivalries with Roman Reigns, John Cena and Dean Ambrose over the past year or so, and you wouldn't bet against him breaking more records in WWE!
