Re: Should MizTv open Raw?
Typically Raw opens with a promo, or hype involving two stars, and more specifically the main event. What's the difference if these things are done on the The Miz show? Now that Raw is 3 hours there is room for a show like this to take 15 minutes. For those who think The Miz is not a household name check again. He is easily one of the most known stars in the company. The Miz is constantly busting his ass promoting the WWE. He is literally everywhere, and that kind of exposure is exactly what he needs.
The Miz is a former WWE Champion, and he wasn't some "flash in the pan" either. His mic work is far above average, and his ring work is "solid". Having this show is a way to keep him relevant as well. In what way does he need to be involved in the main event for this show to work? The Miz knows how to work a crowd, and that is exactly how you get the live audience in to the rest of the night. You have to open with someone who can make some noise. Not to mention his guest that would come out, and make some noise.
Think about it. What if his next guest was Stone Cold Steve Austin, and it was to help push the new WWE 13 game, and out came CM Punk to confront this issue? What if the next guest was The Rock? Open the show with The Rock on MizTv, and the show becomes a hit. Have Vince McMahon on tonight with The Miz hosting Vince, catering to his every needs, complimenting him, and such. The next HHH interview done on MizTv, and the next big contract signing done on MizTv.
No, it won't be the next Piper's Pit, but Miz can work the mic, and keep fans interested especially as a "heel". He is over as a heel, and people can really get in to not liking this man. Think of all the shit he could say. He is better than Oprah, Dr.Phil, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, etc. Not to mention he is currently the Intercontinental Champion, and so furthering feuds on his own show makes sense as well. Possibly cut a promo prior to his guest, and talk shit on his next opponent. Having it open Raw says that it's a mainstay show, and it's a part of the act for Raw on Mondays. Randomly just having it come on is what makes it useless.
