The Labor Day edition of Monday Night Raw will see Bobby Lashley face The Miz inside a steel cage!
The September 5th episode of Monday Night Raw emanates from the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, MO and is set to feature a rematch for the United States Championship between current champion Bobby Lashley and challenger The Miz.
The two went one on one for the title last week, but during the match, Dexter Lumis appeared and caused a distraction for The Miz, which allowed Lashley to lock in the Hurt Lock for the tapout win. The previous week, Lumis kidnapped The Miz during a tag team bout, and Miz seems to still be affected by the trauma of the experience.
Despite being on vacation with his wife Maryse, Miz took to social media over the weekend to demand a rematch with Lashley and also call out the fact that the United States Championship wasn’t defended at Clash at the Castle on September 3rd. In order to avoid another distraction at the hands of Dexter Lumis, Miz wanted the match to take place inside a steel cage on Raw.
“The fact that the #USChampionship is not represented at #WWECastle is a slap in the face to every legend who has ever held it. Maryse and I may be on vacation, but this Monday it’s back to business. #WWERaw Lashley vs. Miz for the US Title inside a steel cage. #NoDistractions”
