I know that when the stipulation for Survivor Series was first announced, a lot of people expected The Miz to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.
Personally, I’m not sure. I think it would be slightly messy and there is enough on the line as it is without The Miz getting involved.
However, it is not clear how they are booking The Miz in the lead-up to Survivor Series. At the moment, I couldn’t suggest who The Miz will be facing off against. I would hope that on the occasion he does eventually cashes it in, he would already be on the card against someone else. Though, if he isn’t on the Survivor Series card, then it would suggest that the briefcase is ready to be cashed.
I don’t really know how they would work The Miz cashing the briefcase in. He won’t cash it on Orton, because if Randy wins, then they’ll play out the reactions of him and Cena at the end. Though if Barrett does win the title, then Cena would definitely unleash hell on him. This would be an ideal opportunity for The Miz to run in and steal the WWE Title.
This would be horrible. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a massive Miz fan and am looking forward to him becoming the champion one day. But, you can’t have Barrett win the title and then lose it immediately. It would make him look like a joke, it’d also make a mockery out of the Nexus if they allowed that situation to happen.
I’d rather see The Miz begin to interact with the Nexus over time, if Barrett was champion. Think it would be enjoyable to see Miz keep trying to cash it in, only for the entire Nexus stable to prevent him.
The WWE are dealing with The Miz excellently, they shouldn't spoil it by having him cash it in at Survivor Series. It's unnecessary at this moment in time, I'd still love The Miz to create his Wrestlemania moment by cashing it in and becoming WWE Champion on the grandest stage of them all.
