The Miz was jobbing left and right and tapping out to Daniel Bryan before winning the WWEC and holding the title for a considerable amount of time while also beating Cena at WM.
Heck, even Daniel Bryan looked fairly weak before cashing it in -- jobbing to Wade Barrett at Summerslam and numberous other jobs, including Sin Cara and Mark Henry.
IMO, the MITB briefcase, if not cashed in quickly, is a good creative prop that enables its holders to both look weak (jobbing to advance storyline or to enhance other talents) while still appearing as a threat to the audience.
No matter how many times a MITB briefcase holder loses, he's still going to get chants whenever a world champion is severely incapacitated in the ring.
