The card for this year’s WrestleMania continues to take shape as it was announced last night on Raw that The Miz would be defending his Intercontinental Championship in a Triple Threat match against Seth Rollins and Finn Balor. The match being made shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody – the seed was planted last week when both challengers defeated The Miz in singles competition on Raw.

The star power of all three men in this match could make the Intercontinental Championship bout feel more than a simple throwaway match at ‘Mania – which has not been the case in recent years. A high stakes bout for a belt helps it to become as prestigious as its champion professes it to be.
Even though the match has been officially announced there is still the possibility that Braun Strowman and Elias could be added, making a ladder match – a staple of WrestleMania in recent years – fairly likely. This would add more to the match in terms of the mayhem that would take place, though a stunt-fest would find it difficult to top the in-ring chemistry and storytelling that could take place between Miz, Balor and Rollins in a straight match.
WrestleMania 34 marks Finn Balor’s first ever WrestleMania match, and it could be argued it will be Miz’s first meaningful match in years where he doesn’t feel like an afterthought making up the numbers. Seth Rollins also hasn’t come close to replicating the intensity he brought during his big “WrestleMania Moment” back in 2015.
The three wrestlers have already proved that they can steal the show when they share the same ring, as proven when The Miz defeated Balor and Rollins in one of the most underrated matches of the year last May.
