The Miz vs. Bobby Lashley WWE title match set for next week's Raw


Bobby Lashley will face The Miz for the WWE title on next week’s Raw.

Lashley will face The Miz in a singles match after defeating Braun Strowman on tonight’s show. If Strowman had won, he would have been added to next week’s title match. After the match, The Miz tried to attack Lashley with the WWE title, but Lashley immediately laid out Miz with a spinebuster and spear, standing strong to close out the show.

Raw opened tonight with Lashley and MVP telling Miz that they came to collect a debt after Lashley laid out Drew McIntyre following his Elimination Chamber win, which set up Miz cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase and pinning McIntyre to win the WWE title.  Lashley wanted a title match, and gave Miz an hour to think about his response. After the hour, Miz said he needed more time. 

Braun Strowman then came out, insisting he get a title match. WWE official Adam Pearce, along with Shane McMahon, eventually made the stipulations for the Raw main event.
