Either you hate him or you love him—or you love to hate him; at the end of the day, you should give Mike “The Miz” Mizanin his props.
Mizanin went from being the host of Friday night SmackDown, to dominating the tag team division; then ultimately re-inventing himself and becoming a household name.
After The Miz won the 2010 RAW Money in the Bank briefcase, we (the fans) expected great things to come.
The Miz would cash in on then WWE champion Randy Orton on the November edition of Monday Night RAW. After a successful title defense against Wade Barrett, Orton was attacked by members of Nexus, this helped Miz get the win.
Miz became the first Tough Enough contestant to win the WWE title.
After winning the title, Mizanin stepped up his game by appearing on numerous TV spots on different channels like TBS’s George Lopez Tonight and G4’s Attack of the Show.
This would help garner more buzz for the WWE and The Miz.
But as of right now, The Miz is without a major WWE title and seems to be out of the main-event picture for now.
The Miz would lose to Cena at WWE’s annual Extreme Rules PPV event in a triple-threat steel cage match involving former tag partner John Morrison as well.
This would lead to a feud with Alex Riley, who was seen as The Miz’s protégé.
Although out of the main-event picture, The Miz has continued to keep his name present by doing numerous interviews and appearances.
“Vince really liked Miz’s promo last week on Raw, which sold SummerSlam even though Miz didn’t have an opponent named,” a reliable insider informed us, “and Vince thought Miz came across as a top heel at SummerSlam.”
The source continued, “But what Vince loved the most was Miz’s performance tonight endorsing Subway, because he did it in such an entertaining fashion, and Vince kept telling people that Miz’s performance is exactly what he’s looking for from WWE Superstars. Miz really raised his stock in WWE in the past week.”
With McMahon high on The Miz’s recent work, expect to see Miz elevated back into the main event picture in the coming weeks and months.”
This is great news if you’re a “Miz-fit," it would be great to see Miz in some key feuds, and this will help him grow his character.
This is a long stretch but it would be interesting to see Miz back on SmackDown, as it will add more depth to the roster and more star power.
But right now let’s see how the Miz continues to develop.
