At WWE TLC, Intercontinental Champion The Miz will step into battle against longstanding adversary Dolph Ziggler in a Ladder Match. However, if Ziggler falls short this time around, it will be the last time The A-Lister will have to face him for his illustrious title — as if the stakes weren’t high enough already!
Not only can’t the two Cleveland natives stand each other, but they both have a tremendous love for the title itself, with Miz currently on his sixth reign as Intercontinental Champion and Ziggler having held it five times.
Despite the fact both Superstars are well-versed in the prizes and pitfalls of a Ladder Match, there is truly no way to prepare for the dangerous rungs. Yet, the X factor of this contest will be Maryse. The Miz’s crafty wife has helped him win several matches, including against The Showoff the title on the 900th episode for SmackDown and against Sami Zayn at Survivor Series. Ziggler will need to find a way to neutralize her, or he may not stand much chance of regaining the championship.
Prediction: Dolphe Ziggler
