Mike "The Miz" Mizanin's face-turn has been planned for quite some time by WWE.

Miz began his turn last Monday night on Raw as he joined Mick Foley's team for the upcoming Survivor Series.

According to a staff report at PWMania.com, WWE has a list of opponents they would like him to face in the coming months:

"PWMania,com noted before that WWE has plans to organically turn The Miz to a babyface over the next few months and that one feud discussed for 2013 is against rising star Antonio Cesaro. Other potential feuds for babyface Miz next year include Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler and CM Punk."

Being a longtime fan that has given Miz a lot of credit for how he has evolved from the annoying and overly-confident reality TV star, it was a surprise to see the beginnings of this shift during last Monday's Raw.

As for his future opponents, the only one I like is Dolph Ziggler. But maybe it's just me, but I'd like to see something new and fresh.

Now I want to play the role of WWEs creative team and pitch an concept that would be perfect for the debut of someone I've wanted to see for a long time.

For those who don't know who Dean Ambrose is, he has spent about seven years on the independent circuit under the name Jon Moxley for such companies as Combat Zone Wrestling and Dragon Gate USA.


He reported to WWE developmental's Florida Championship Wrestling and debuted as a heel that was hell-bent on defeating Seth Rollins (a.k.a. Tyler Black). He has also had five-star matches with William Regal.

Ambrose's character has remained just as twisted, demented and unbalanced as when he was on the indy circuit.

As far as a feud with Miz, it has to start with Ambrose coming out of the crowd during a match. This could continue for weeks until Ambrose explains that he refuses to be nice to those who have what he feels he rightfully deserves.

Ambrose could use Miz's reality TV background as fuel for the promo fire, claiming that he didn't have to work as hard as he did.

Now, who knows what the creative team has planned for us over the next few weeks. It will be interesting to see the Miz play the good guy.

I just believe this is a perfect time for a new heel to make an awesome impact.
