The Miz upset that the WWE Championship isn’t headlining WWE Pay Per View events

Sports Illustrated is featuring an interview with The Miz where he discusses the WWE Championship match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura not main eventing the Backlash PPV this past Sunday night in New Jersey.

Miz noted he wants to make the WWE Championship relevant and prestigious.

“Do I think AJ Styles is doing a terrific job as WWE champion? Absolutely. But that WWE championship should be in the main event of every single WWE pay per view. It upsets me when I see that it is not.”

Miz, who will take part in the upcoming men’s “Money in the Bank” ladder match in six weeks in Chicago, already has a goal in mind.

“My goal is to not only win the Money in the Bank contract, cash it in and become WWE champion. I want to put that title back where it belongs: the main event.”
