As seen at Sunday’s (September 15, 2019) WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view event in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Spectrum Center on the WWE Network, Nakamura beat The Miz to retain the title thanks to outside interference by Sami Zayn.
While WWE could continue this feud, it’s not likely considering the company didn’t do much with Nakakuma as champion on television.
There was speculation that the company could put the title back on The Miz due to to the current record holder no longer being under contract with the company. But that wasn’t the case.
Chris Jericho had the most reigns with nine but is now tied with Miz. Jericho split with the WWE as he signed with AEW (All Elite Wrestling). WWE typically likes for talent that they are in good standing with to be a record holder.
Thus, this was the reason as to why fans had speculated that WWE could put the title put on The Miz.
