If you were looking at the SummerSlam match card before today, you would have noticed the Intercontinental Champion, The Miz, had nothing to do on it. He’s been going back-and-forth with Jason Jordan in recent weeks but there hasn’t been enough time to build to a proper match.
You’d also notice The Hardy Men had nothing going on, a function of an injury suffered by Scott Dawson of The Revival.
Put it all together, and this makes sense:
