Edge and Beth Phoenix To Face Miz And Maryse At Royal Rumble

Royal Rumble Edge Beth Phoenix Miz Maryse

On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, Edge called out The Miz and his wife Maryse to face himself and his wife Beth Phoenix at the Royal Rumble and the most must-see couple in WWE accepted the challenge.

The Miz and Edge have been trading heated words for weeks on Monday Night Raw after Miz and Maryse interrupted the Rated R Superstar’s WWE return on November 29. Even after agreeing to face each other at Day 1, the two continued to duke it out on television, most recently with Edge interrupting the vow renewal ceremony between Miz and Maryse on the December 27th episode.

During their match at Day 1, Maryse interfered constantly, at one point putting The Miz’s foot on the rope to evade a pinfall and another time hitting Edge in the head with her loaded purse. As she was standing on the ring apron trying to cause more of a scene, Miz got a look of fear on his face and pointed for his wife to turn around, only to find a returning Beth Phoenixstaring at them from the ramp.

After watching Phoenix chase Maryse around the ring and away from the action, Edge was able to hit a spear on the horrified Miz and win the match. He celebrated with Beth Phoenix in the ring as Miz and Maryse looked on in disgust.

On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, Miz and Maryse made their way to the ring to address the situation. Miz called his Day 1 opponent a coward and asked what kind of man would put his wife in harm’s way, obviously referencing the fact that he put Maryse between himself and Edge on a recent episode of Raw.

The WWE Hall of Famers interrupted the It Couple and made it clear that the Glamazon wasn’t put in harm’s way at the behest of her husband. In fact, she said that everything that happened at Day 1 was actually her idea.

Edge then issued a challenge for Miz and Maryse to face him and Beth Phoenix at the Royal Rumble. Though Miz initially asked if he was serious, he eventually said that the It Couple accepted, though Maryse didn’t look sure that she was entirely on the same page as her husband when it came to their plans.

WWE has confirmed that this match will take place at the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event on January 29th, 2022.
