The MIz

WrestleMania is a couple of hours away and the match everyone’s talking about, for all the wrong reasons, is the WWE title match.  The verbal feud between The Rock & John Cena is over shadowing the fact that WWE champion The Miz will be in the main event at WrestleMania 27. The Miz has been over looked and is being used more like a prop or a third wheel in the main event at WrestleMania. We all must agree that his in-ring performance and his mic work have improved over the course of three years. This man fought his way to the top of WWE ranks and he is still not viewed as a top performer. He won Money in The Bank ladder match in July 18, 2010, which gave him a contract for a title shot when ever and where ever he chooses.  On November 22, 2010 The Miz cashed in his Money in the Bank contract and defeated Randy Orton, thus becoming the new WWE Champion on Monday night Raw.  

The road that The Miz took to obtain the WWE Championship was long and wearing, he was a cast member on the MTV realty hit series “Real World”.  In 2004 he competed in the “Tough Enough competition”, in which he placed second. The WWE gave him a developmental contract and placed him in their wrestling training companies. He wrestled in Deep South Wrestling (DSW) and Ohio Valley Wresting (OVW), in which he had great success. He became the Deep South Heavyweight Champion and held the OVW Tag Team Championship. The Miz joined SmackDown in early 2006, later was drafted to ECW where he won the WWE Tag Team titles with John Morrison. The Miz and Morrison also won the World Tag Team Championship.  He was drafted to Raw mid 2009, where he won his first single title, by defeating the United States Champion Kofi Kingston live on Raw. The Miz held the United States Championship on two different occasions. He later teamed up with The Big Show and became part of the Unified Tag Team Champions by defeating DX (Shawn Michael s & Triple H),while also holding the US title at the sometime.

The Miz future is bright, but there will be many questions to answer after this WrestleMania. If he wins who will be his next opponent? Is there another young wrestler ready to become the top WWE superstar?  Or if he loses, will he start all over at the bottom of the WWE rankings?  We have seen this happen before, most recently with former World Champion Jack Swagger, whom I thought was going to be a great superstar. Never the less we should recognize that The Miz is on top of the WWE universe…. He is Awesomeeeeee!.
