The Miz has been a big part of WWE television since he debuted in 2006. Despite receiving a lack of praise from many fans for his in ring work over the years, The Miz became a two-time Grand Slam champion, a WrestleMania main eventer, and a former Money in the Bank holder. He has achieved a lot in WWE but is underrated when talking about the greats of the company.
The Miz’s Legacy.
As previously stated, The Miz debuted in 2006 when he faced Tatanka. The early parts of his career are well documented as he wasn’t well received by his fellow superstars. The reason for this is that he came for a reality television background. There is a famous story that he wasn’t allowed to change in the toilets because people didn’t want him in the locker room. The Miz has won many titles, including two runs with the top belt. However, he is more well-known for his work with the Intercontinental championship, where he feuded with Dolph Ziggler. He has held the prestigious title eight times and has been dubbed by many as one of the greatest intercontinental ever. The highlight of his career was main eventing WrestleMania 27 alongside John Cena, which shows that he was considered a top talent in the company at one point.
What Makes Him So Good?
The Miz has mastered his role in WWE. Even though he is a solid in-ring worker, his character work is when he is at his best. He has played both a heel and a Babyface throughout his career. Yet, in the heel role is when he shined the brightest. The Miz also has an incredible ability to express emotion on the microphone and make an audience feel sympathy for him even though he is a bad guy. The Miz showed this ability in his war of words with LA Knight on last week’s episode of Raw. These skills have helped him become the only two-time grand slam champion in WWE history.
What Does The Future Hold For Him?
Looking at the future of The Miz, he is entering a feud with LA Knight. The Miz plays the heel at this career stage that puts over the hottest new babyface. However, he can have a couple more rounds with mid-card titles. Whatever happens with the A-list, here’s a future Hall of Famer.
