Reason Why Roman Reigns Defeated The Miz for the Intercontinental Title

— WWE reportedly had Roman Reigns defeat The Miz for the WWE Intercontinental Title is because Miz will be taking some time off to film a movie.


— While there is no confirmation on what movie he will be filming, the rumors are that it will be for WWE Studios’ The Marine franchise. Also unknown is when The Miz will return, though the report is that he won’t be back on TV until all the entire filming is complete.

— There is also no word on whether Roman Reigns will hold onto the IC title all the way through to WrestleMania and then face off against Brock Lesnar in a champion vs. champion match, but one rumor is that he will drop the title to someone who may be switching over from the Smackdown brand.
