The Miz and Dexter Lumis will face off in the squared circle on WWE Monday Night Raw.
Since making his comeback to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on the August 8, 2022 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, Dexter Lumis has been toying with The Miz. For weeks, Lumis stalked the former WWE Champion, as well as tormented him and threatened his family. Lumis also kidnapped “The A-Lister,” broke into his house and cost him multiple bouts.
Johnny Gargano has also been involved in the feud between The Miz and Dexter Lumis, making claims that the former paid the latter in order to achieve publicity. Originally, The Miz denied the accusations from Gargano, however, “Johnny Wrestler” would release footage that he obtained from a private investigator. In the video, the investigator was acting as a Hollywood producer that was having dinner with The Miz. During the conversation between the two, The Miz admitted that Gargano was telling the truth.
Gargano would confront The Miz yet again on the November 14, 2022 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw. At first, The Miz would try to move on from the situation, however, Gargano would come out to say that he had a conversation with management of World Wrestling Entertainment, who set up a match between The Miz and Dexter Lumis in two weeks on WWE Monday Night Raw. If Lumis scores the victory, The Miz will have to pay Lumis his money, as well as the latter receiving an official contract from the company.
