Impressed with The Miz

Did anyone else see his promo with Triple H on SmackDown? I've been down on him, but he really impressed me with his mic work, and delivered there. Anyone else think the same?

Re: Impressed with The Miz

His delivery was a reminder of his WWE Title run when he was a poor man's version of the quiet, suit-wearing Jericho. With that said, I hope Randall beats the shit out of him again.

A LOT of wrestlers copy others when it comes to mic work. Getting at him for copying Jericho is nitpicking, if anything it is good that he looks up to a good mic worker.

Re: Impressed with The Miz

Miz is a pretty good talent when he's given chance, certainly on the mic. He's been feeding off scraps since that horrible burial by Cena at OTL'11, but before that he was cutting some really solid heel promos and getting a lot of heat. Even in the fall/winter of 2011 he was still probably the most over heel despite being buried over and over again. IMO he should turn heel again since the fans don't seem to want to accept him as a face, the only problem is where he'd fit in since the roster is already pretty heel-heavy ATM.

No doubt that copying is an established part of the wrestling world. However, a good amount of time (2-3 years at a minimum sounds about right) should at least pass before one guy copies another to a tee. Jericho's quiet, suit-wearing evil mastermind gimmick ended barely 2 months before Miz mimicked it to a tee when he won the WWE Title. Miz's shit in-ring ability also didn't help his case of being a poor man's knock-off, either.

I mean they did put all of their eggs into one basket and when the star of the main storyline on both shows doesn't make it the product suffers. Orton doesn't have enough star power to do it on his own. It was an "ok" show with what they were given. I probably wouldn't have put all my other draws (Ziggler/RVD/Kofi/Shield) in a 6 man tag though. Especially with the lack of star power on the show.

EDIT: The Miz was pretty good tonight in his promo though.



Props to CHAMPviaDQ for the sig

Re: Impressed with The Miz

Miz hasn't been good on the mic since he turned face.

Re: Impressed with The Miz

Miz always had good mic skills and charisma. It is in the ring he is rubbish at.
