Kevin Nash vs The Miz

I recently read a tweet by Kevin Nash saying how the WWE had made a mistake in making The Miz the Champion. I like Nash and think he has done a good job wherever he has been but I think on this occasion he is very wrong.
The WWE is trying to build new main event stars as old ones are injured, retiring or just boring. The only way to do this is to give the ball to new stars and see who runs with it. They have chosen the Miz to do so and I for one hope it works.
Now many say that the Miz is a reality star and this isnt right. Is this any different to former football stars wrestling and it certainly isnt a David Arquette situation. Many people like me in the UK dont know the Miz as anything other than the WWE guy, so the reality star point is muted. He has built a character that is compelling and draws you in. The fact that many people on here are moaning about how much they hate him and how Cole will be annoying with him is confirmation of a heel doing one hell of a job.
Throw in some much underated wrestling skills (come on how technical ever was austin or cena) and the best mic work out of l the new stand out stars and I think the WWE have just created a new star, something ALL wrestling needs because as much as some of us guys want to relive the past with the old guys, DX and attitude era, these guys are older, falling apart and need to help the new guys to shine. Wrestling has always been perceived as "UNCOOL" and switching on my TV and seeing Ric Flair and Hogan embarrasing themselves on TNA creeps me out and makes my GF laugh.
I hope the WWE makes The Miz into a long serving main eventer, the fact it was a "clean win" over Orton makes me think they will. I would like to see them give Swagger another chance, Swagger and The Miz in a feud would be great viewing.
