The latest edition of WWE Raw, from Toronto, Canada, was an enjoyable one for fans – however, it wasn’t quite so enjoyable for The Miz.
Raw saw the returns of WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Beth Phoenix, as well as former NXT star Johnny Gargano.
There were a number of great matches. Kevin Owens took on Chad Gable, Edge faced Damien Priest in a grudge match, and the team of Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky took on Alexa Bliss and Asuka in the latest round of the Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament.
Bayley also made her long-awaited televised return to the ring, beating Aliyah.
It was another entertaining matchup, with both teams securing near falls. But the match took a dark turn when Styles was almost forced over the ringside barricade by an unknown figure.
Then, just seconds later, Miz was pulled over the barricade by Dexter Lumis. The former NXT star has appeared several times on Raw over recent weeks, but was stopped by security on each occasion. This time around, however, there was no stopping him.
Lumis put Miz in a sleeper hold and carried him out of the arena. The referee immediately called the match off. However, Styles and Lashley decided to continue anyway, with ‘The All Mighty’ landing an inch-perfect spear on Ciampa.
What has happened to The Miz on WWE Raw?
WWE were cautious not to reveal what had actually happened to The Miz in storyline.
Hilariously, his name wasn’t even mentioned for the rest of the show. Lashley, Styles and Ciampa didn’t make too much of a deal of the incident either.
We can only assume that The Miz being kidnapped will lead to a long-term storyline that will develop over the coming weeks.
Fans pointed out, however, that Lumis has previous for ‘abduction’ on WWE television, doing the same to Austin Theory during their days on NXT.
Whatever happens next, we’ve no doubt that Triple H will have something entertaining up his sleeve.
