This is horrible that a 40+ year old manager like Paul Heyman manages to look like the true star in his exchanges with The Miz when The Miz is supposed to be regarded highly for his skills on the microphone. Tonight and for quite some time (since before his awful face turn) I have found The Miz to be slightly above average when it comes to his work on the microphone and feel as if he should improve in this area, since he's already very average in the ring. He appears as if he's not interesting in what he is doing, because he does not go that extra step in engaging the audience.
Another part that irked me in the segment was just how unlikable I found The Miz. I don't know what it is, but I just cannot like The Miz no matter what he does. Perhaps he should just turn heel again? When Brock came out and The Miz just stood there with his completely unconvincing pose and tough guy look, how can the audience believe he's even a threat? Because of the way he held himself in that stare down, he just looked like a tool and I wish the WWE just had Brock beat the crap out of him instead of having a stare down between the two. However, I was highly entertained during Brock's beat him down on The Miz in part due to the points listed above. The Miz is just totally unconvincing, average in the ring and on the microphone and it is clear that his face turn is not working at all. The fact that his face turn is not working could be attributed to a lack of direction, but I don't think so. I think it's because of his lack of talent and interest that he's stuck as a directionless mid carder and I am glad that it appears as if he's staying there for quite a long time.
Wow. Wow. Wow.
Hold up, what did Miz do wrong with that promo? He put in emotion. Used his catch phrases. It didn't help the crowd was dead and stupid. Everything else got a dead reaction, EXCEPT "EHRMEHGERD. ORTON, CENA, AND BROCK."
And how did he look like a tool? Honestly, The Miz hate gets old. I'm sorry, but how is this any different from when Hurricane glared down The Rock?
It helped The Miz's character. He didn't slide out and run. He looked at the problem face on. Hell, he even got a few shots on Lesnar.
So tell me, what's so wrong with The Miz? No, he's not that good in the ring. His promos aren't SPECTACULAR, but he's hardly horrible. Just give me a few things he does wrong on the mic and in the ring. Like, does he not speak clearly? Does he botch moves?
Infact, if I remember a bunch of superstars even talk that working with The Miz is a pretty pleasent experience. Your whole post was just this giant enormous ignorant "WELL, THE MIZ IS JUST BORING AND SUCKISH IN THE RING. LET ME REPEAT THAT FOR FIVE TIMES, WITHOUT ANY ACTUAL BACK UP TO SAID POST."
In short? Your post could've just said. "I don't like The Miz.".
