At WWE No Mercy, Jason Jordan will have the opportunity to silence The Miz, who has accused Jordan of receiving favouritism from his father, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, and take The A-Lister’s coveted Intercontinental Title all at the same time.
Jordan earned the right to go head-to-head against Miz by winning a hard-fought Six-Pack Challenge against Jeff Hardy, Matt Hardy, Elias, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel this week on Raw. Angle originally set up a Fatal 4-Way Match, but when The A-Lister accused the GM of giving his son advantages that he didn’t deserve, a determined Jordan requested that his father include The Miztourage in the melee as well.
Just moments after emerging victorious from free-for-all, Jordan was the recipient of a vicious post-match assault by The Miz and his cohorts, who made it clear that he will not be so lucky this Sunday.
Though there is no denying the tremendous ability of the up-and-coming Superstar – not to mention the success embedded in his DNA – overcoming the seven-time Intercontinental Champion will not be the least bit easy. Not only will The Awesome One have his wife Maryse and The Miztourage backing him up, but the A-Lister just passed The Honky Tonk Man to become the third-longest combined reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history, and he is determined not to stop that number any time soon.
Prediction: The Miz
While I would like to see Jorden win this, I think him losing would set up more of a storyline down the line at some championship opportunity in the future…
