Re: Impressed with The Miz
A LOT of wrestlers copy others when it comes to mic work. Getting at him for copying Jericho is nitpicking, if anything it is good that he looks up to a good mic worker.
No doubt that copying is an established part of the wrestling world. However, a good amount of time (2-3 years at a minimum sounds about right) should at least pass before one guy copies another to a tee. Jericho's quiet, suit-wearing evil mastermind gimmick ended barely 2 months before Miz mimicked it to a tee when he won the WWE Title. Miz's shit in-ring ability also didn't help his case of being a poor man's knock-off, either.
