With four spots already secured, The Miz and Apollo Crews tonight (Feb. 5) battled for the fifth spot in the Raw Elimination Chamber match.
Fresh off a huge win over Roman Reigns, The Miz explained why the current Intercontinental champion wanted a crack at the Universal championship if he won the Chamber match.

A standing shooting star press got Crews his cloesest two count. Crews then reversed a Skull Crushing Finale into a roll-up that nearly got a three count and the upset.
After ramming Apollo Crews into the turnbuckle, The Miz landed his second Skull Crushing Finale attempt and picked up the victory.
