After seemingly doing enough to win the 20-man battle royal for the WWE Intercontinental Championship at Battleground last night, Dolph Ziggler was surprised and eliminated by the Miz.
Given a superstar has to be thrown over the top rope to be eliminated, Miz used the loop hole allowing him to be outside the ring and climb back in to steal the win.
As expected, WWE fans were not pleased about the result…
I don’t even like Dolph Ziggler but I’m honestly upset Miz won instead of him.

I literally jumped out of seat and started screaming when I thought Ziggler won!! But then Miz won and now I’m just sitting here in silence.
