No way that won't work, in my opinion.

One year on, new WWE champion, and the kids will love it.
And then maybe that kid in your avatar will crack a smile next time Miz wins a big match.

I think Miz has all of the makings of a good face. Everyone is sick of the smiling goody two-shoes guys who pander to the kiddies like Cena and Sheamus, well Miz can still be a good guy who is booked as a face, but still has some attitude. Punk did it, and for a while he did it very well until the WWE stopped caring about his face run and pulled the plug on it.

Miz does the catch phrases and things that crowds eat it up. He's a natural on the mic, so he isn't someone who HAS to resort to pandering to get the crowd cheering. He can talk trash but still come off as a lovable good guy. I don't mind the pandering if it's kept to a minimum. Orton did it and I didn't think it was bad.

We want more Austin and Rock type faces, and I think as far as mic working goes, Miz is that.

I think as a wrestler, he'll be far better off as a face. He's not much at being the heel and controlling the pace of the match, due to his lack of...most things, like power, mat wrestling ability, good strikes, ring generalship, etc. If he can just sell sell sell then hit some of his Miz neckbreakers and the Breakdown, he'll probably look better in the ring.

As a character, I can kind of see it, but I think he might have too much "douche" and not enough "cool" in the equation. He'd be like Jericho or The Rock, but to me both of those guys are far more natural and a lot "cooler" than Miz. Miz tends to sound like a PR spin machine when he speaks, and bragging about being the Most Must See WWE Superstar Sports Entertainer in the WWE Universe is inherently heelish.

If he becomes a generic babyface, he'll be forgotten fast, since he's a small guy. He needs some edgyness to him if he goes face.

If they do turn him face. They should not turn him into some smiling jackass who tells corny and horrible jokes. That's the worse they can do to him.

That's kinda what he has done for a while though... Doesn't always smile, squints sometimes.

The really cool thing is, Miz hasn't been a real face as an established wrestler.

It could turn out to be a pretty big flop, or he could become the next top face in WWE history. We just really don't know. And I'm excited to find out.

The faces of today ALWAYS pander to the crowd and make corny jokes and do kiddie type shit. Last legit bad-ass face was Edge's SD reign. If they manage to keep Miz's character while being face, then Cena needs to step aside.
