WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz has been medically cleared to compete at tonight’s television taping in Memphis, Tennessee after being struck hard in the head by Kofi Kingston’s “Trouble In Paradise” maneuver during their match on Raw Monday. He will defend his belt against Kingston in a match that will air tomorrow night on WWE Main Event on ION Television.
Michael J. Sampson, WWE’s ringside physician, determined that The Miz did not suffer a concussion after being struck by Kingston’s devastating kick at the conclusion of their match on Raw. He stated in a video published on WWE.com that the Superstar has some pain on his forehead and required sutures, but has no signs of concussion-like symptoms after undergoing neurological testing.
In another video, The Miz offers insight into his state of mind as he heads into a title match against Kingston. He says “he’s coming” for him.
