Sunday night Backlash aired on the WWE Network, and even though the card featured several title matches, it was Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe that ended up closing the show.

It’s no big secret that WWE officials have been pushing Roman Reigns as the top guy for many years now, but some were surprised to see Roman in the main event considering the fact that AJ Styles defended his WWE Title against Shinsuke Nakamura at the pay-per-view.

There was once a time when the WWE Championship was looked at as the most prestigious title in the industry, and The Miz recently told Sports Illustrated that it upsets him when the title isn’t in the main event.

“My goal is to make the WWE championship as relevant and prestigious as it should be. 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.”

The Miz went on to say that his goal is to win the title and put it back in the main event.

Tuesday night on SmackDown Live, The Miz managed to defeat Jeff Hardy in a Money in the Bank qualifying match, so he may very well get his chance to become champion again if he can win the briefcase.
