Love the article. Most people forget that when Austin, the Rock, HHH, Shawn Michael, and great WWF/WWE superstars won world/wwe/wwf championships as heels their credibility came from their hard work as a face/anti-hero before. The Miz was never given this opportunity. I like that he can be himself off camera too. When you think about, I don't know anyone other superstar that has gone out to promote his organization faster and better AND STILL be able to carry that much heat in the WWE. I love the fact that he's champ, and if Cena or Orton beat him for that belt, I will stop watching RAW for a week : )
Miz should never be a face. It would not suit him at all. He has too much of a heel personality and would never pull it off. And he was built up slowly, like Edge was in 2005. Miz had the U.S. title for too long however(7 months). As soon as he lost it to Bret Hart, he should have been able to move on. Instead, they let him win it again & have it for 3 MORE months. Too long.
BECAUSE HE'S THE MIZ AND HE IS AWESOME
I love this article, but I have one issue with it. The Miz paid his dues and has earned his spot in the main event no matter what anyone says. He was the runner up in the million dollar Tough Enough. I thought he should have won. Then he wallowed in developmental for a number of years until getting thrown into a tag team with John Morrison on ECW. The two quickly ran the ranks and won multiple tag titles and eventually the unifed titles. Then the draft split them and we had Miz on Raw! He floundered a bit because his character lacked the certain something. So he rededicated himself, got new ring gear and got AGGRESSIVE. Shorty after won the US title nd held that for a while. Along the way tagged with Big Show to win the unified titles as Show Miz. All the while holding the US title. Eventually won the Raw MITB. Held that and the US title for a while. Lost the US title but upgraded shortly after to the WWE title. Now to me THAT is paying your dues!!!
Great read! The Miz is a small, average sized guy, like you said, so having some lackeys help him should be expected. He plays the part of a heel perfectly, and is AWESOME!
You are God, The Miz is AWESOME and so is this post.
