    Well, since WWE is trying to push him as a traditional babyface, with his usual underlying arrogance, I find it important that he gets those sort of mannerisms under wrap. And the fact that he was able to execute well with the WWE Champion speaks volumes. He convincingly opposed WWE's top heel as a face whilst preserving his touch for mic work. That's a cause for celebration IMO so yes.

    Well, you can feel that way and it's cool.

    Of course not. I just stated it as a bonus as I feel that The Miz is one of the few people who could have made that sort of promo work out. All the same, that exclusive advantage isn't necessarily my excuse for my praise. Like I said, just an appreciation for his mick work and how he's flexible enough to make it work as both a face and a heel.
