The Miz is Awesome
The Miz in my opinion is the most underrated Superstar in the entire WWE. The Miz is not widely liked on these forums on understand that, however the that still doesn't take away from the talents that he is. I believe a lot of people are still sore over the fact that he main evented a WrestleMania but quite frankly I believe he was given an opportunity and shined through that and continues to shine in the WWE. Now no doubt his face turn did him no favors however I still think he has all the talent, skill, and marketability to become a top WWE superstar once again.
One thing that I have always enjoyed about the Miz and also I find great about him is his move set. He uses a plethora of maneuvers that not only make his matches good but make the matches that he is in so much more interesting And the truth is it's just not the fact that he has the ability to hit certain moves it's how he does it. Notice when he does his running corner clothesline. He hits it and holds on to it for a moment either showing his cockiness when he's a heel or his pleasure of hitting his move when he's a face. His heel work and move set shatters that of his face move set however he is still extremely talented when he gets into the ring ad I feel this often goes unnoticed.
His realty TV background enhances his mic work and his in ring work. He is one of those people who knows how to work a crowd. People may not like him but he uses them to his advantage and can always cut solid promos. This is seen through him earning his Miz TV segments and having them constantly be the means of setting something up. Also watch his facial expressions inside the ring. He has the ability to show exactly how the match is going by the way he expresses himself. He usually is serious but when he has the advantage he is cheerful and when he's losing he looks in distress. As an entertainer and an actor Miz does indeed have some of the best quality work whether you like it or not.
The Miz puts in the "extra" effort. If you want to see a WWE superstar who does a ton of WWE things after the shows and live events it's the Miz. Whether attending a convention, a talk show, a signing, who is the WWE's go to guy the Miz. He always is a crowd pleaser knows how to connect and knows how to sell the WWE product. He's the host of Summerslam and whilst most wrestling fans (myself included) are not looking forward to this because it will take away from in-rig time, I truly believe he will do the best he can to entertain the masses.
Wrestlezone, I understand that there's a wound given to a lot of wrestling fans that hasn't healed because he main evented Mania. There's a wound that can't go away because he's a "poor man's Rick Flair." However Wrestlezone, The Miz is far greater then what he gets credit for. He constantly does his best and tries his hardest to entertain. Is he the most underrated? That's debatable. But does he deserve more credit then he gets?
