If the Miz captures the gold, this will be his 7th Intercontinental Championship.
While WWE is doing a better job of long term planning than in recent memory, it could be hurting the current audience's interest as knowing what's coming is even worse than "pushing the wrong superstar". The interference from Dar was a distraction and Fox then attacked Banks. My only hope is they are actually planning something long term which would get Bayley and Sasha Banks in a title match at WrestleMania next year, but I am not counting on it. Swann has interfered with the relationship between Noam Dar and Alicia Fox for months, while Banks' feud with Fox has come about because of a handful of recently traded victories. Her popularity seems to be skyrocketing.

She didn't manage to recapture the RAW Women's Title, so now we have to wonder what is next for Bayley. How did the Kendo Stick on a Pole match turn out after the putrid angle involving Alexa Bliss and Bayley on Raw?
The Miz held an advantage over Ambrose in their Intercontinental title match, as if Dean Ambrose was disqualified, he would hand over his title to The Miz.

Cesaro and Sheamus (-16,000) are favored to win the Tag Team Championship from The Hardy Boyz (+4000) in a Steel Cage match. He has 1/25 betting odds to retain his Cruiserweight Championship against Austin Aries (15/2). Expect the finish of this match to be some kind of disqualification in order to further develop things towards SummerSlam. She said she would have an interview with Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy during the second half of the Kickoff Show. Then, you can maybe squeeze a few more pennies out of Team Extreme as they try to regain their belts. After a hard fought match in which three of the contestants would find themselves half broken, Samoa Joe and Bray Wyatt battled it out to the very end with Joe getting the victory. The size difference between Balor and Lesnar would make for an interesting match and he seems to be one of the favorites to win the match. Once it was every man for themselves, the match went to the next level. Samoa Joe would be a great tank-versus-tank matchup. Remember, this matchup came about after the untimely injury to Braun Strowman, meaning to say the Big Dog Roman Reigns winning this is highly unlikely.
Moments earlier, Finn Balor blasted Reigns with a kick that leveled the former WWE champion at ringside. But unluckily for him, before he could go for the pinfall, Joe returned to the ring and locked in a vicious Coquina Clutch to leave Balor unresponsive and forcing the referee into calling for the bell.More news: Walker pitches LSU to SEC tourney title, 4-2 over Arkansas
