It took a couple weeks, but WWE finally got around to Otis defending himself in court against charges brought by The Miz related to his Money in the Bank contract. The long and short of it is Miz was trying to take the contract for himself using a harebrained scheme that included taking Otis to court to win a judgement against him.
It wasn’t going to work, because it was so incredibly stupid that even judge JBL could see through it, but it ultimately paid off because, well, the judge was JBL. If we know anything about John Bradshaw Layfield it’s that he can be bought.
So that’s what The Miz did. He earned a judgement in his favor, though that didn’t actually award him the Money in the Bank contract. Instead, it earned him a match against Otis at Hell in a Cell this Sun., Oct. 25, 2020, in Orlando, and if he wins said match then and only then will he get the Money in the Bank contract.
Here’s the updated Hell in a Cell match card:
- Bayley (c) vs. Sasha Banks (SmackDown women’s championship)
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Jey Uso (Universal championship)
- Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton (WWE championship)
- Otis vs. The Miz (Money in the Bank contract)
- Jeff Hardy vs. Elias
