One thing that Miz does not get nearly enough praise for: his perfectly solid in-ring skills. OK, so he's not Kenta Kobashi circa 1995 (who is?), but he's still very good.
Alas, it seems many fans have been conditioned to believe that if a guy didn't come from ROH or isn't killing himself every night with wacky bumps, he's not very good, and Miz remains woefully under-appreciated in this area.
But his track record speaks for itself. Who can forget his fantastic match with Christian in July 2012 (one of the best WWE television bouts of the year)?
Or his brilliant pay-per-view contest with Jerry Lawler in 2011, which will arguably go down as Lawler's last great wrestling match?
Him and Dolph Ziggler also tore the house down last year in a tremendous Main Event bout which still remains one of the best matches the Ion show has ever broadcast.
His recent bouts with Wade Barrett and Antonio Cesaro have also been very enjoyable, serving as a highlight of Raw and SmackDown.
