John Cena has starred in The Marine, 12 Rounds, and Legendary just to name a few of his acting gigs. Along with that, John has had numerous roles on television appearing on talk-shows, television movies, and even reality shows. With such a record, I think it's safe to say that John has some success as far as media coverage goes, and apparently is interesting enough to warrant attention.
Meanwhile, another superstar has been carving out a similar niche in the mainstream. The Miz, a man who regards himself as "The Most Must-See WWE Superstar in History," will star in The Marine: Homefront, Christmas Bounty, had a spot in The Campaign, and will be appearing in another WWE production called "Queens of The Ring" along with WWE Champion CM Punk and WWE Divas Champion Eve Torres.
Aside from that, The Miz has also been on several talk shows much like Cena so again, I have to think that there's a lot of interest in this man outside of the WWE.
This brings me to a suggestion for the year of 2013. Somewhere down the line, perhaps WWE can delve a little deeper into what they showed us Monday night when John Cena and The Miz, two men who hated each other not terribly long ago, put their anger aside for a common cause and beat The Rhodes Scholars in a tag team match, showing a surprising amount of chemistry in the ring.
Indeed, it may be a bit difficult in the early part of the year, but looking a bit closely I think WWE has something with these two. The former WWE Tag Team Champions will likely split apart for the foreseeable future, what with the many possibilities for Cena at Mania, and Miz's relatively new position as a face. Still, when you at least look at where The Miz is at, I think there's at least a small chance WWE puts him in some sort of tag team.
The Miz has seemingly made The Rhodes Scholars his primary focus, berating them, picking up victories over the likes of Damien Sandow, and many of his matches as of late have been tag team outings with Alberto Del Rio. Now, while Del Rio wouldn't be a bad partner for The Miz (if Del Rio can put aside his legit feelings about Miz), I think WWE could do a little better than this duo.
Cena could likely leave WrestleMania as the champion and by them, Miz's fortunes may or may not have changed (depending on what WWE does with the tag titles), however, I think if Team Hell No has shown us something, it's that the tag team division can be a good place for stars, once it's time to take a break from the main event.
It worked for Bryan, gave Kane something to do, saved the directionless Rhodes and Sandow, Mysterio has a purpose in WWE now, and Sin Cara has never been better.
Perhaps, when Cena does drop the strap (should he win at Mania), he can look to a tag team with The Miz. I certainly think these two would be a huge draw in the tag team division, and could even provide more star power by appearing together at events to help promote the WWE.
Along with that, this would be a good way to get The Miz back into the main-event scene. Say they end up winning the tag titles and having a good five- to seven-month reign as champions and eventually drop the titles to a young and growing tag team (let's say 3MB pick up the win). This could easily be parlayed into situation where the two are both in position to be the No. 1 contender for the title.
Here, Cena can put over The Miz, without looking weak (because not only has Miz been able to raise his stock while teaming with Cena, he's also picked up plenty of pins). Cena can be a heel, we get a new star, and we had some fun along the way.
And who's to say it has to stop their. I did mention that Eve was going to be starring in a movie alongside Miz. Who's to say she doesn't turn face at some point, (cause the Divas could use one more face, anyway) and join the three, given her own record of outside projects.
This answers a lot of questions like, "What can Cena do after WrestleMania," "What is WWE doing with The Miz," "What will the division come too after Hell No disbands?"
All questions that could be answered by a tag team of John Cena and The Miz, or "Hollywood Access," as I call them. (Hollywood Axis, could be used should Eve ever join them as a valet.)
