The Miz's Figure Four botch was a work
Like most of you, I watched the Beat the Clock match between Dolph Ziggler and The Miz, and like most of you, I saw how The Miz "botched" the Figure Four leglock. Not only did I have a facepalm moment, but thought that Miz should stop using the submission move altogether.
He did it decent enough on both Raw and SmackDown last week, but tonight he looked like he couldn't do it at all. It was horrible.
Then I saw this...
No wonder Cole and Lawler kept saying Miz was rushing ahead during the match. WWE is already in contract disputes, and this is just a lame attempt to bring Ric Flair back in on a more permanent basis. If this was WWE's plan, we all fell for it.
