At the Battleground PPV, there was a battle royal to determine a new Intercontinental Champion, as the title was vacated by Wade Barrett.
The Miz ended up winning the match and the title, and is expected to feud with Sheamus and possible unite the two mid-tier titles.
However, the original plan was for Dolph Ziggler to win the IC belt. At a creative meeting this past Tuesday, the decision was made to change the finish to the Miz. The rationale was that the Miz is going to be doing tons of media for The Marine 4 movie.
After Miz/Sheamus, the plan is to move to Miz/Ziggler, but that is still TBD.
