Nearing the end of a highly competitive match, Kingston and Miz are both down. After they both struggle to get to their feet at a nine count, Kingston hits the Trouble in Paradise out of nowhere. After gaining the victory, Kingston leaves the ring, but the Miz still lays unconscious for the second time in the last three weeks from the Trouble in Paradise.
Kingston then starts to use this as the basis for some character growth, and he talks about just how dangerous the Trouble in Paradise is, saying he can beat anyone in the WWE in a second. This would eventually lead to a feud, way down the road, with CM Punk for the WWE title.
The Miz takes some time off to rest his actual injuries, Kingston gets his push, and the fans can stop complaining about Kingston not getting his shot.
WWE Creative believes that it is smart to put the IC belt back on the Miz—despite his minor concussion, lack of depth and general mediocrity.
Miz never begins a real feud and only defends his belt on PPVs against guys like Tyson Kidd and Michael McGillicutty.
Kingston then gets paired with Zack Ryder to form a less-than-stellar tag team who eventually wins the tag team titles against Team Hell No, thus destroying both the Intercontinental and tag team title divisions at once.
