Steel Cage Match: Shane McMahon vs The Miz

It was a controversial win for Shane McMahon who overcame The Miz in a Steel Cage Match. Miz hit McMahon with a Skull Crushing Finale on a steel chair and should have won the match.

According to the rules, the referee should have kept on counting since there are no rope breaks in a steel the cage match. McMahon capitalized on the controversial moment that favoured him to regroup. He climbed out of the cage by letting loose of his shirt while The Miz held on to it.
