The RR USED to be the event where at the brink main eventers would win. I think Rey was the last person to win the RR who hadn't won a World Title prior, that was in '06.Not gonna happen. The Miz has been so carefully built up as a major player this year, MITB is the key for him to be a permanent main eventer, WWE aren't just gonna waste it like that. Besides, Royal Rumble are usually won by established main eventer nowadays, so it will most likely be won by guys like Orton, Cena, or even the returning Triple H. Even though i'd prefer if Royal Rumble will be won by upper-midcard guys who are ready to get elevated such as Kofi Kingston or John Morrison.
I know that, that's why i'm not sure next year's Rumble winner will be someone who's ready to get elevated because these past few years all the Rumble winners were established main eventers (Cena, Orton, Taker, etc). But, never say never, WWE lack any new stars in the main event at the moment, so this might force them to elevate more stars in the future, Royal Rumble will be a perfect time to do it. WWE had a chance with MITB back in July to give the briefcase to Kofi but they blew it by giving it to Kane instead, ugh.The RR USED to be the event where at the brink main eventers would win.

That's definitely not going to happen. People are bitching now, but once Miz wins (if he does) those opposed will become non-existent for the most part. This is the IWC, you know better.The RR USED to be the event where at the brink main eventers would win.

Now MITB is for the at-the-brink main eventers.
If for no other reason, I want Miz to cash in successfully so I can see the IWC cry like the bitches they are after winning.
While it shouldn't be Miz (a heel) I do agree with the basic idea. I posted a similar thing before the MITB PPV, the only difference is that I built it around Christian (a face) as the holder and used Drew MacIntyre as the guy who would cost him. That feud would've kept him busy for a few months before the Rumble push began.I reckon the Miz cashes MITB at the Royal Rumble and it backfires he gets beat or DQd somehow (maybe either Barrett, Cean or Orton intereferes). He then goes on and wins the Rumble! Igniting a feud!
I don't think he should cash in soon because Cena and Orton, two main babyfaces, are still busy with Nexus, The Miz will get pushed aside to give a room for them if he becomes champion soon and i don't want that to happen. If The Miz becomes champion, i want him to get all the spotlights, not playing a second fiddle to other main eventers.WWE better have him cash in soon because theres not much left of that briefcase the way he uses it on people.
