It turns out that The Miz and Dexter Lumis were working together during all the weeks of supposed terror for 'The A-Lister' and his family!
This is according to Johnny Gargano, who sat down with Byron Saxton on last night's edition of the show to deliver on his promise to expose a secret that would both explain away exactly why Miz had been targeted and potentially "cancel" him at the same time.
Lumis made Miz' life hell on television once a week because...he was paid to do it by the man himself! Gargano explained that after Lumis fell on hard times, Miz saw an opportunity and used the assault idea as a way to keep himself relevant as an influential figure. This obviously extended to costing him matches, physically assaulting him and, for two weeks at least, traumatising his wife Maryse at work and in her home.
Gargano failed to mention that Lumis was down on his luck and forced into this strange situation because of WWE - the company released the former NXT star in April 2022 during a round of the company's "budget cuts".
Earlier on in the night, The Miz had tried to secure the help of Roman Reigns in order to stop the story breaking but was Superman Punched in the jaw for his troubles. He was defeated by Mustafa Ali later in the show too.
