I can't stop watching the last 5 minutes of RAW where Miz aced it and out performed everyone by a country mile (level with JBL). He had cheers during his promo, maybe because there was a lot of cena-haters in the audience. But for a guy like The Miz who is a cocky-do-anything-to-win sort of character that's weird, especially to their #1 face Cena. This years RTWM has been a lot more lenient, allowing words such as "ass" and "bitch" on a live show to be said. When a heel is as good on the mic as Miz, and starts making funny jokes, says words such as "ass" they do get liked, it'd be pointless listing many people who have. Similar to Mr Kennedy really, and early John Cena.
So what happens if he gets more and more cheers each week and actually does a Randy Orton and accidentally becomes a top face? I know it's very unrealistic and WWE Booking will do what they can to prevent it, but more and more people are starting to like The Miz. Deserves all of his success.
