While everyone has been quick to jump to the conclusion that the Miz will be getting no where in WWE and that he's a temporary champion, the truth is that he will be a key part of WWE in the near future.
Before I get started, let me remind you that guys like Triple H and The Undertaker will not be around forever. We've already seen the departure of Batista and Shawn Michaels. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that WWE needs to create new main event wrestlers in order for the company to survive.
In case you haven't been watching WWE as of late, the company has taken a new initiative. It involves pushing new and fresh superstars into the main event.
One of these superstars is The Miz. While he may not be an in-ring general by a long shot, he's got tremendous mic work and he's capable of generating a great amount of publicity for the company.
If you know anything about Vince McMahon, you'll know that he loves generating publicity for his company. Which business man wouldn't?
The Miz is actually one of the few wrestlers that has received a nice, slow and steady push to the main event. Rushed main event wrestlers are Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barret and even Alberto Del Rio.
He was built perfectly during his entire time with the company, and when he won Money in the Bank, only good things followed.
He's a heel at the moment and is capable of generating quite a nice reaction from the crowd. To be completely up front with you, he reminds me of The Rock back in 1997-1998 when he was a heel. He could generate excellent crowd reactions, and it became very clear that he will be becoming a huge star in the company as the millennium approached.
The next step in The Miz's career is to have him defeat John Cena at Wrestlemania and remain heel with the WWE Championship for another 6-8 months afterwards. He can make the switch to a face after this point.
If you don't already know, The Miz has already been offered a role in a movie outside of WWE Studios. That's a huge feat as not many wrestlers have been able to get involved in movies outside of WWE's own Films.
To me, it's very obvious that this man is the next face of the company. Mark my words, he will be the company's center piece in the next 3 or 5 years.
