EXCLUSIVE: Backstage News on The Miz Losing The U.S. Title

Nick Paglino

According to a source within WWE, The Miz dropping the U.S. Title at tonight’s WWE Night of Champions PPV should not be looked at as a demotion. Rather, WWE has big plans for The Miz in the future, and tonight’s loss was engineered more to get the mid-card title off of him so he could be better positioned as a main event player.

WWE made the call to have Daniel Bryan go over The Miz cleanly to help Bryan look strong in victory, and not to punish or demote The Miz in anyway.
