The Miz was a big favorite of WWE management back when he won the WWE Title a year ago because of publicity that he brought the company.
The feeling now is that Miz has regressed, both in the ring and on the microphone. The feeling is that when Miz was booked as a mid-carder before, he was hungry and forced officials to make him a headliner. Now he’s back to the mid-card and isn’t forcing them to push him.
The botch with R-Truth on this week’s RAW didn’t do him any favors.
