Re: Miz is a comedy of errors...
You guys are being overly ridiculous about this. The guy made a mistake. Mistakes do happen. Even in WWE. Especially when you're rushing. It looks like he started off setting up the move correctly, but Ziggler's leg slipped out of his hands. Instead of just starting the whole move over, though, he just tried to lock in the move without the first step and it ended up looking sloppy.
Keep in mind that it was a Beat the Clock match, though. He and Ziggler probably had to make sure that they didn't waste any time in order to make the match end when it was supposed to. Timed matches have to have a bit more thought given to them. Like I said, Miz rushed it. It also makes sense kayfabe-wise, because of the match type, so Miz doesn't end up looking so bad in the end. I do think he would have had time to retry to first step of the move, but it's over now. No big deal. He'll master the move eventually.
