Posted on 2/22/121 by Colin Vassallo

For the second time in his career, The Miz became the WWE
champion after successfully cashing in his Money In The Bank
briefcase again, this time against Drew McIntyre at the
Elimination Chamber.

McIntyre had just won his Elimination Chamber match,
successfully defending the gold against Jeff Hardy, Randy
Orton, Kofi Kingston, Sheamus, and AJ Styles. But after the
match was over, the now former United States champion Bobby
Lashley viciously attacked McIntyre. After Lashley was done
with McIntyre, The Miz ran in with the briefcase and cashed

McIntyre struggled to get on his feet and Miz hit a DDT for
a close two-count. But Miz hit the Skull Crushing Finale on
McIntyre immediately afterward and pinned the champion.

The Miz won the first WWE title in November 2010 in Orlando
after he cashed in his MITB briefcase on Monday Night Raw,
pinning Randy Orton. He held the title until May 1, 2011
where he lost it to John Cena in Tampa.
