Tonight on Monday Night Raw, The Miz ripped his pants wide open during a match against Heath Slater.
About an hour into the show, The Miz hosted an episode of Miz TV, which concluded with Heath Slater challenging him to a match for the Intercontinental Championship. The Miz was not expecting a match, and so he came to the ring in a suit rather than his ring gear. However, Kurt Angle booked this match with Slater, which took place immediately after Miz TV ended.
Miz therefore wrestled wearing his dress shirt, pants, and black shoes. It didn’t take long for The Miz’s pants to rip, but this was not some small tear. Rather, his pants were completely split open, and he wrestled for nearly 10 full minutes with his pants torn.
This moment blew up on social media, with hundreds of users making jokes about the “ripped pants” episode of Spongebob Squarepants. Later, Corey Graves made reference to this on commentary, saying that someone should get the Intercontinental Championship a new pair of pants.
