SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
The Miz retained the Intercontinental Title against Dolph Ziggler in a featured title match on this week’s Smackdown Live show.
It was a re-match from the Backlash PPV where Maryse used mace on Ziggler leading to the finish.
The Smackdown match finished with Maryse trying to spray Ziggler with mace, getting caught, being kicked out from ringside, leaving behind the mace, Miz distracting the referee with the IC Title belt, using the mace on Ziggler, and hitting the Skullcrushing Finale for the win.
Ziggler had a super-close nearfall moments before the belt distraction that led to the ultimate finish.
It remains to be seen if WWE sets up another title re-match at the No Mercy PPV on October 9.
