The Miz cashed in his Money In The Bank contract during the opening contest of WWE TLC – but has failed to win the WWE Championship.
Cashing in on a type of Ladder Match, despite not winning the briefcase via that same method, Miz would interrupt the colossal clash between Drew McIntyre and AJ Styles to try take advantage of the fact he didn’t need to win via pinfall or submission to gain the title. However, Miz would find himself going through a table at the hands of AJ Styles’ Associate Omos – who Morrison would try to decimate with a chair, only for the chair to come off worse.
Seize the moment, and stay in it.

Drew McIntyre would retain the title in the TLC Match, defying all the odds to prolong his second reign as WWE Champion.
It’s potentially worth noting that John Morrison seemed to cash in the briefcase for The Miz, and that the bell didn’t ring after Miz’s cash in to restart the match – although commentary would state throughout that the Money In The Bank contract had been cashed in.
