A giant Miz shaped shadow has just been cast over the AJ Styles versus Daniel Bryan world title feud.
This week, on a very special Miz TV, Styles and Bryan joined the Hollywood A-Lister for a sit down interview. In a segment intended to hype up the pending title match between Styles and Bryan at WWE Crown Jewel, The Miz didn’t just steal the moment, he grabbed it plain sight without hesitation.

He KNOWS he can, and he'll have the chance to at #WWECrownJewel! #SDLive pic.twitter.com/f8NnJnnPZB
With Styles and Bryan basically roasting Miz for much of the interview, the host eventually stormed off but not before he got the last word.

The Miz pretty much booked Styles and Bryan into a number one contender’s match for the right to wrestle him. Brilliant.
On paper, Styles versus Bryan should be a fantastic in-ring display. The fact that The Miz could make us overlook all of that for a future world title feud says a lot about the level he is currently operating on.
Who will win the right to face The Miz after WWE Crown Jewel, AJ Styles or Daniel Bryan?
