Backstage News On Plans For Intercontinental Championship Feud


Intercontinental Champion Ryback faced Big Show at Money in the Bank in a match that ended with Big Show winning by disqualification because The Miz entered the ring to attack Big Show and then Ryback. The reason this was done is because the plan is to do a triple threat feud for the Intercontinental Championship. This is according to Dave Meltzer on the post-Money in the Bank edition of Wrestling Observer Radio.

The original plan was for Ryback vs. Big Show vs. The Miz to actually happen at Money in the Bank, but creative changed it to just Ryback vs. Show and now they can move on to the triple threat feud at Battleground on July 19 as well as possibly SummerSlam in August.

The reason for The Miz interfering in the match is because Big Show walked out to the ring on Raw two weeks ago when Miz was going to have a match with Ryback and Show knocked out Miz with one punch to prevent him from getting his match. There was also a point in the Money in the Bank match where Ryback attacked Miz when he was unprovoked and tossed him over the announce table.
