Ever since arriving in World Wrestling Entertainment as one of the hosts of the WWE Diva Search competition, Mike Mizanin has been highly criticized from several individuals not only in the Internet Wrestling Community, but also from those inside his very own locker room in the promotion.
Since originally competing in Tough Enough, he has come a long way inside the squared circle and in developing his persona in and out of the ring.
His credentials should tout him as a no doubt, future top competitor with his multiple championship title reigns as a singles and tag team star. The Miz has also shown great desire and dedication while working for "The Worldwide Leader In Sports Entertainment."
On Monday night, the former reality television star on MTV's The Real World cashed in his much anticipated Money In The Bank title shot opportunity on a wounded Randy Orton. While some were extremely pleased to see "The Awesome One" capture the WWE Championship from "The Viper," others seem very annoyed and frustrated on the matter.
One of those individuals happens to be a former World Wrestling Entertainment and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling performer, Kevin Nash. Following Miz's WWE Championship title victory last night, "Big Sexy" had some comments on WWE's decision to give the prestigious title to The Miz.
"I promise I will not be back in the WWE. They think young sells," Kevin Nash wrote on his official Twitter account. "I've watched Grand Torino 15 times. Bad a-- sells, not Men's fitness in trunks. WWE told the world that there s--- is a work with The Miz as champ."
Kevin Nash has kept it no secret over the past few months that he is firmly against World Wrestling Entertainment's new "youth movement," so it isn't shocking to see Nash criticize the move—not to mention when it surrounds a controversial performer such as The Miz.
The "tweets" have since been deleted, but it is definitely interesting to see Nash be so harsh about WWE's decision, considering that the two are apparently on good terms. Not to mention, Kevin still has a friendship with Triple H, who has a lot of backstage and political influence in the WWE when it comes to creative decisions.
The Miz is definitely going to have to prove his critics wrong with this opportunity presented to him by the WWE. With the amount of hard work he has put in to get this point, he should have no problem proving his doubters wrong if given proper material to work with moving forward.
Although, up to this point, it seems as if World Wrestling Entertainment has to be satisfied with the amount of buzz this has generated throughout various media outlets, such as MTV, Us Magazine and TMZ—or even the Internet wrestling community—whether it be positive or negative.
