During the Elimination Chamber 2021 broadcasts through WWE Network, superstar The Miz has won the WWE Championship after successfully redeeming his Money in the Bank briefcase against Drew McIntyre.
After successfully defending the WWE top title against five other opponents within the elimination chamber, Drew McIntyre received a surprise attack from Bobby Lashley. “The All-Mighty” finished the leader of “Claymore Country” and quickly gave way to the entrance of The Miz. The latter made his exchange of the Money in the Bank briefcase official and managed to finish the champion with a DDT followed by his Skull Crushing Finale for the count of three
An AWESOME strategy by @mikethemiz…

In this way, The Miz wins the WWE Championship for the second time in his career. Drew McIntyre ends his 97-day reign that began on Monday Night RAW broadcasts. The Scottish fighter defeated former champion, Randy Orton, in a match that closed the day of the red show on November 16. The two men faced each other without disqualification until McIntyre hit the Claymore Kick that earned him his second-highest title at the company.
Double Grand Slam
Thanks to this victory, The Miz becomes the first double Grand Slam in WWE history. To his credit, he has held a maximum championship, the Intercontinental Championship, the United States, and the couples championship on two occasions.
The Miz ends his run as Mr. Money in the Bank
Tonight ended one of the strangest periods that the men’s Money in the Bank has had. Recall that it was Otis who won the ladder match on May 10 in the event of the same name. After several months holding the briefcase, “The Awesome” snatched it from him in a hand-to-hand on October 25 at Hell in a Cell. At the 2020 TLC event, Miz failed to trade during the McIntyre-AJ Styles title match but managed to get the briefcase back by claiming it was Morrison who turned it over to authorities. The new champion kept it for 55 days since he received it again on December 28, 2020.
