So, uh, how long do these movie shoots usually take?
Miz was out for 4 months to film The Marine 4, so yeah.
Miz was out longer than the movie took to shoot. If I remember correctly, Summer came back like a month before him.
I don't think they can afford to not have Ambrose on within the next 5-7 weeks. This feud is way too good.
It's possible they filmed all of Summer's scenes first and then kept Miz for another month to do his solo stuff.
Miz was ready for like a month before he actually returned to TV. If I'm not mistaken, he actually worked house show dates between The Marine 4 and his return as Hollywood Miz.
Also, there's another five weeks between NoC and Hell in a Cell, so Ambrose being gone 5-7 weeks seems logical.
