The Miz and Dexter Lumis are set to finally go one on one next week, and a huge stipulation for the match has been set!
On what’s being hailed as the season premiere of Monday Night Raw, Maryse spared no expense when throwing a birthday party for her husband The Miz, who turned 42 on October 8th. Not only did she provide a cake, an ice sculpture, and an inscribed baseball bat, she also presented her husband with two giant red balls with his face on them.
Miz loved his presents, but he was less thrilled when the head of Dexter Lumis popped up through the gift table, indicating that his nemesis had been hiding under the table and was determined to ruin the party. Chaos ensued, and as Dexter attacked, Maryse was sent flying into the cake, ruining her perfect appearance. Just as he’s done for weeks on end, Lumis put his foe to sleep before taking the cake knife and using it to deflate Miz’s giant balls. He then ate some of the cake to end the segment.

Following a commercial break, the members of D-Generation X were seen talking to Omos’ latest victims before the enraged Miz and Maryse stormed in to complain. Shawn Michaels said that he knows Lumis, and that he’s a good guy who wouldn’t go after just anyone, but the birthday boy insisted that he’d done nothing to provoke these attacks.
Road Dogg, who works backstage in an executive role with WWE, provided a solution, saying that the two will face off next week in singles action and if Miz is victorious, Lumis will be gone forever. Shawn Michaels added that if Lumis wins, he’ll earn a WWE contract. X-Pac joked that he didn’t know Road Dogg had the power to book matches.
Elsewhere on Monday Night Raw, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson returned to the company and reunited with AJ Styles against The Judgment Day. Not only that, Brock Lesnar also made his return and attacked Bobby Lashley, leading to Seth Rollins defeating Lashely for the United States Championship.
