The Miz and John Morrison are still looking to continue their recent beef with Braun Strowman and Otis, as during tonight’s segment of The Dirt Sheet, the pair continued to call out Mr. Money in the Bank and the WWE Universal Champion. However, after Miz lost singles match to the champ, John Morrison quickly issued a unique challenge for WWE Backlash.

Strowman took down The Miz after being called out by him, coming down to the ring and making short work of his opponent in a singles match with Morrison looking on. Following Strowman’s win, Morrison grabbed a microphone and said that while Strowman had won a tag team match last week and a singles match this week, he knew one match Strowman couldn’t win. He then challenged Strowman to a Handicap Match against both Miz and himself for the WWE Universal Championship. Not one to back down from a challenge, Strowman quickly accepted, setting the stage for a potentially big night on the pay-per-view.
