The Miz was over the moon when Shane McMahon agreed to become his tag team partner and things got even better when they won the SmackDown Tag Team Championships at the Royal Rumble.
But their reign didn’t last long as The Usos dethroned them at Elimination Chamber and retained the belts at Fastlane.

Shane-O-Mac then ordered The A-Lister to face him at WrestleMania.
Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley vs Finn Balor OFFICIAL
Bobby Lashley and Finn Balor have been embroiled in a heated rivalry over the Intercontinental Championship.
