Another reason, why the Miz was made, WWE Champion is because he used to be associated with MTV in the past. He was a former “Real World” star. Then he went on WWE’s Tough Enough, another wrestling reality show where wrestler hopefuls train to get a contract in WWE. Miz was sent to OVW to further his wrestling skills in hopes of getting signed to WWE. Miz becoming Champion in WWE just recently is a ploy to help market WWE in a huge way since he was a former Real World star. WWE knew Miz becoming Champion would be all over mainstream news. Hoping to get more ratings and more merchandise sales.
All the internet has been talking about lately is the Miz becoming WWE Champion, and I’m not just talking about wrestling community websites. The Miz is even being talked about everywhere, even on TMZ. I know a lot of people like him and a lot of people hope he may become the next Stone Cold/Rock, but I can think of plenty of other younger wrestlers that can easily fill in Stone Cold’s/Rock’s spotlight. Like I said in the previous post, the Miz is not my favorite wrestler. As I said, I don’t think Miz will have a long title reign.
I think there are other young wrestlers that are better than the Miz. Who? I like Ezekiel Jackson, Evan Bourne, Jack Swagger, and that redhead wrestler, Sheamus.
While I don’t agree with Miz being the Champ, I still give WWE props for finally giving the belt to someone different other than Randy Orton and John Cena all the time. I’m sure Cena will get it back, it’s only a matter of time. Just wait.
Ever since WWE went PG, they never had a heel champion. It was mostly John Cena and Randy Orton that held the belt. I think the Miz was made WWE Champion because it was a test to see how sales goes with the Merchandise. Could WWE lose Merchandise and TV ratings because of the Miz being Champion? Possibly, we’ll have to see how it goes. If the WWE lose merchandise sales, if they start to go down on everything, they’ll probably have to make a babyface champion again. Triple H should be coming back soon, I think that’s another reason the Miz was made Champion so Triple H can feud with him for the belt. That’s the tough thing about the PG switch with WWE, it’s gonna be tough on them having a heel Champion ’cause they know a lot of children are not going to like it.
If the Miz was Champion if WWE was still TV-14 now, all the adult WWE fans would find it cool, but with children that are fans, is a different thing. See what I’m saying? I don’t think Miz will be Champion for long. He got it so another babyface wrestler can take it from him whether it will be Cena or Randy Orton or Triple H.
What do I like about the Miz? Do I like the character? I know the Miz is a very popular heel, which is another reason he was made Champion, but to be honest, I don’t think he’s a good performer. I really don’t like his voice when he does promos in the ring. He messes up a lot of speeches and can’t say things right, plus, his, “I am the Miz, and I am awesome” quote is a bit annoying, and too simple. I’d prefer Wade Barrett of the Nexus being WWE Champion then the Miz, but who knows, maybe Wade Barrett will take it from the Miz and there will be a heel vs. heel Championship match.
WWE can’t overdo the heel thing anymore due to the PG switch, that’s why almost every RAW show ends with a babyface wrestler being the hero, but WWE did something different this week, at least, I’ll give them that. RAW last Monday night was a decent show. They are slightly improving.
WWE stars, Eve Torres and the Miz sign autographs at SDCC. Look, The Miz even brought his Money in the Bank briefcase.
