I think the midcard is where he should be, honestly. He just doesn't have the right look for me. I do think he can be talented on the microphone but he might have the worst facial expressions in the entire company, which is pretty damn important when you want to be at the top of the card. Ring work, eh, it's WWE so I don't think it matters all that much anyway.
That's not to say that there aren't other people, such as Daniel Bryan, whom I also don't think have the right look, but I do think The Miz should be at about the middle of the card.
Lately, he seems as if he has lost a lot of his passion. Which, losing his girlfriend traveling on the road with him, plus having that insane schedule with all of that PR
only to be made to look bad on TV...that would get to anyone I think.
He was in the main event of Wrestlemania last year & I'm sure that's higher than even he thought he would ever go. He lived his dream, now he can be an enhancement talent.
