Hey guys Knox here. I'm here to blog about the career of the Miz for a couple seconds. Now the Miz is one of my favorites so I feel its time to address this whole Tag Team situation. He was made into a bonifide maineventer only be thrown back into another tag team which is something I have trouble in understanding.
First The Miz was with John Morrison, then The Big Show, briefly with Chris Jericho, pretty much was in a tag team with Alex Riley and now he's teaming with R-Truth. Where is this coming from?
The Miz's most glorified days as a WWE star: WWE Champ or Tag Team Champ?
The WWE has now got me confused lol. I enjoyed the Miz as a Tag Team Wrestler, it fitted him and it helped solidify his push when he broke from those Tag Teams. But was he more glorified as a tag team partner or WWE champ? I'll leave that for you all to answer on the comments because truly I don't know anymore.
This is where the Miz was the clean cut 2nd best in this tag team. Morrison was an established upper-midcarder. He was a former ECW & I.C. Champ. This is when I hated the Miz but I always seen potential in him. He had no idea how far this would go but we loved every minute of it and then finally the WWE split them up which was a good move.
The first Miz vs Cena feud:
The Miz used his hype as newly produced singles star and was put into a very entertaining angle with Cena. He walked around in his "No Cena" shirt and delivered. They put on a great match at a PPV and that feud was over, for now.
The Miz in his U.S. Title Run:
On the rebound of his brief Cena feud, he went on to win the U.S. Title and kept it for a long time. He was well on his way to becoming the man.
The Miz partners with the Big Show:
What was the point of this. He was well on his way as a singles superstar. He cut some of the best promos on his own and then they put him with The Big Show? I love The Big Show but it made no sense to me. Hell, the Big Show has been in too many tag teams and stables if you ask me.
The WWE had the Big Show help him defend that U.S. Title.
Money in the Bank, Alex Riley, WWE Championship:
Here's where the WWE dropped the ball. They let the Miz win the Money in the Bank Briefcase. Then he was already alligned with Alex Riley.
They couldn't even book the Miz to beat Jerry Lawler without outside interference from Alex Riley.
The Miz won the WWE Champion and had not one fair title defense. The WWE creative team made the Miz look like the weakest champion ever. Alex Riley bailed him out of every title match. In fact, his I-Quit match vs Cena was basically a handicap match and then within 60 seconds Super Cena went on a run and made the Miz tap.
They gave the Miz the opportunity to not only mainevent Wrestlemania but actually pin Cena but with THE ROCK's HELP. The WWE ruined the Miz's career by making him look like a cheap champion.
Feud with Alex Riley:
Now this is what really destroyed The Miz. After The Miz couldn't do anything by himself. he's finally having the opportunity to kayfabe destroy the guy who's been helping him and they have Alex Riley beat him twice. What does that do for a former WWE champion?
Not only that but Roddy Piper pinned the Miz
Teaming with R-Truth:
So now after all that, The Miz is going to team with The Miz. Expect them to have a legendary run together. The Miz's highest moments have occured when he's in a tag team because there's someone else to help carry the weight.
Conclusion: So we ask was the Miz a better Tag Team Wrester or WWE Champ? And we ask will the Miz be known as a Tag Team Wrestler?
The Miz is a better tag team wrestler and thats were the best moments of his career occured.
They made him an even worst WWE Champion than JBL was and JBL was a great champ, he just rarely won on his own. The Miz is better than that but the WWE allowed this to happen.
The Miz didn't defend that belt one time on his own. He jobbed to Cena and quit in 5 seconds. He had a horrible WWE title run.
But his tag team career has been awesome and I loved it. But if you want to revive his career, why put the "Most Must See WWE Superstar" in another tag team?
