Should MizTv open Raw?

If they are going to have Raw open with long talking segments, and I am not saying they always do, but doesn't this make sense just to have MizTv open the show each week? I think it does, and it adds that sense of consistency. We know we are getting full does of Cena, Punk, Team Hell No, Ryback, and a splash of everyone else. Thats as consistent as it has been for some time now. Add MizTv, and make it the open to the show.

The Miz can carry an open segment with some thoughts of his, few words to a fellow competitor about his IC title, and then move on to the guest, or guests of the show on Raw. You don't just get some random match, and perhaps the show acts a spark towards a match, or feud later that night. It's a great way to set up a match, or feud. It will feature the IC title, and that should always be stated in his opening, and will change accordingly to what ever title he may have.

Have him go, and get Colin Cassidy, and Big E Langston as Body Guards for the show in order to keep "The Ryback" as Miz would call him far away from his set. Colin stands near 7' tall, and Langston is just a big man in size not height. This gives them some air time on the big time. Miz would tells us that these two men aren't just some muscle, they are trained professionals who know how to hurt people when they step out of line. Miz gives them they 15 seconds of fame, and from that point on they just come out weekly to stand in the ring watching Miz's back, and IC title.

First segment is supposed to provide the teaser of the night. That's not going to do it. Plus if I'm not mistaken the first time they did it, it tanked the ratings.

Re: Should MizTv open Raw?

If Miz opens every Raw and people know it, then people will know not to tune in until 8:20. No one wants to see some Mid carder open the show every week. There is a reason the biggest feud of the time always opens the show, it's because it's the fed and the people the fans are supposed to be most interested in.

Raw (or any wrestlng show for that matter) has never been about the same thing occurring at the same time every week. They need unpredictability to get the fans invested.

Re: Should MizTv open Raw?

the same thing opening Raw everyweek is a bad idea, specially The Miz. Its more a 'mid-card' segment, not a show-opener.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena

John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]

MizTv is a terrible concept. They should just scrap it. Casual fans don't like it either judging by the boring chants.

No. The WWE Champion, The Best in the World, CM Punk, along with Paul Heyman of course, should open Raw EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK.
