I would hesitate to say that he is "the future"  but I would agree that he has a very bright future.  I am glad that Morrison and him are getting their chance to shine as the WWE star power wanes.  Let's home these 2 guys can pull it off.

I will not really equate Miz to The Rock but when The Rock was Rocky Miavia and had won the Intercontinental Title and was getting a mid card push, he got tons of heat too. No wrestler ever had heard that kind of jeering before. The crowd would chant " Die Rocky Die". But WWE believed he could be a major star and persisted and look where he is today. Miz has the camera presence akin to The Rock . All he needs is a little work in the ring . Yes they people are harsh at times when it comes to him. Miz's matches against Mysterio and Orton on Smackdown were not that bad . Ok, he can't be Chris Jericho , but he can certainly improve his ring work if they give him the opportunities to work long matches regularly.

When I was reading this, up until the end I was kind of sitting here under the belief that you were going to tell me that Miz had all 3. And I would've had to laugh. I will agree the guy has mic. skills, and drawing ability I would agree with maybe after seeing him defend the title at a major ppv against someone who isn't a big draw(such as Morrison) and see the PPV still get decent buys. As far as wrestling ability I will say he has improved drastically over the past year or two but that doesn't say much if you look at him from back than.

And I would hope that your saying that in-ring ability is the least important as far as WWE is concerned because otherwise I've lost some respect for you. In the world of Wrestling, in-ring ability is the most important. But with the WWE we're talking about Entertainment so you can be Cena and be a huge star.

I would agree though that Miz is the future. Just like Sheamus, they don't really need any talent. The ability to politic and kiss ass gets them further than any talent ever could. Miz has been given every title, every accomplishment, has been touted for over a year now as something greater than he is and now hes one of the major stars. Sheamus was a nobody, whom they gave the title and touted as an unstoppable beast till people bought into it. In WWE you don't need talent to become a star... just kiss the right persons ass.

But Sheamus did prove he belongs . He may have reached the main event kissing ass but he's shown he can stay there on his own. The guy may not be the greatest in ring technician of all time, he does have that ring psyche and the ability to work with anyone pretty well. He's had a couple of very entertaining matches against Morrison and his match on Raw against Orton was a good one too.

Thing is he didn't really even reach the main event. He was thrust into it. He has feuded with no one prior to Cena. He was in for six months, spent 4 and a half of them on ECW. He was put on RAW as a nobody and within 6 to 8 weeks he was WWE Champion. When he won the title the crowd was sitting on their hands because they were in disbelief of the stupidity. The only reason he got over with the crowd is because he was given the title and pushed down everyones throats until they booed him. Getting boos because you make fans hate you is one thing, fans booing you because they think your undeserving is a whole different thing.

Hes had a few good matches, but hes not a draw, if he left they wouldn't lose ratings. He couldn't sell out an arena. Hes a guy who has gotten to and stayed where he is solely because of his relationship with Hunter.

The only other person to go from debut to winning the WWE Title in as quick of time as him was Kurt Angle. And for anyone to put Sheamus in the same category as Kurt would be insane.

Sheamus beating Cena in that table match would have been brilliant had Cena not been the WWE Champion. Instead WWE Creative thought it'd be a good idea to shock everyone, including the internet, and give this nobody the WWE Title. It wasn't the best idea, even though it was amusing to see how butthurt most of the internet fans were. They inadvertently sounded like Cena marks.

But anyway, the Miz has been around, always succeeding in looking like a dumbass. From his debut as the Smackdown 'host' that forgot his lines to today, it's still difficult to take him seriously. He's good on the mic, better than a lot of others, but he's not really the best. He's good in the ring, but as Rated said, that's not particularly important in the WWE. And while he's relevant to an extent, he's not exactly the primary heel of Raw. And he's the WWE Champion! Shouldn't he be involved with somebody apart from Jerry Lawler? Whatever, look, Miz is not bad, and he probably is the future. I'm just not quite on board with him currently being the present.

Miz's mic skills are decent...but his promos are generic and unoriginal.  Sadly, he is one of the few young guys who seems comfortable on the mic....but still...that doesn't mean he is great on the mic. 

I have no idea how anyone can say Miz is a draw at this point in his career.  Not that he may not be...but he has had no chance to prove it.  Based on crowd reaction...I think Miz gets go away heat...RKO said sheamus got heat because he didn't deserve to be where he is at....I think it is the same with Miz.  At least now Sheamus has had some good matches with Orton(amazingly since Orton took about 2 bumps) and JoMo....its just a shame that he has had two meaningless title runs...it hurts his character more than helps it...but, back to miz.

His ring work is boring.  He doesn't do anything in the ring that separates himself from anyone so his matches don't exactly stick out.  But in all honesty, there really isn't a whole lot to say about his in ring work because up until a month ago he barely wrestled in any lengthy matches.  I guess you can look at his matches with Daniel Bryan....but Bryan carried him in those matches..oh..and he also beat the Miz like three times....now Miz is champ and Bryan is in backstage segments with the Bellas.....anyways..

I am going to compare Miz to Jeff Jarrett...a guy who I just cannot stand to watch....he is a midcarder walking around with a world title and it just makes the company look ridiculous.  Only, Jeff Jarrett had/has more talent than the Miz ever will.

I agree almost completely with main-event. The last PPV that I paid for was WM, and that was because I HAD to see HBK/Undertaker. There is no situation I can foresee that anyone can reasonably look forward to a Miz vs. anyone main event as MUST-SEE. If you can't bring it in the ring, then you shouldn't be champion.

In wrestling you need a payoff. Miz builds up something he can't deliver: a worthwhile payoff.

I hated Rick Rude and Ted Dibiase, but I liked watching their matches. Can't say the same for Miz.
