The Miz's career has been a bit of a roller coaster if you ask me. He started out as a talk show host, raised up to tag team champion/U.S. Champion, hit the main event scene as WWE Champion, then dropped down into obscurity before tagging with R-Truth.
It's been a long, winding road for the loudmouth from Cleveland. However, it seems as if The Miz may be on his way back to the top. I thought he was entering a feud with CM Punk the weeks coming up to TLC, but that didn't pan out. He now is in a rivalry with former friend R-Truth. Due to the fact that Truth was recently suspended, I think The Miz will come out the victor if they end up having a match.
The only issue with this rivalry is that it probably won't end by the Royal Rumble. I could easily see R-Truth entering and eliminating The Miz to further their rivalry possibly to Elimination Chamber or maybe further. I like The Miz, and his rivalry with Truth is interesting, but it may hinder his chances at this year's Royal Rumble.
