Let’s be real for a moment by saying that The Miz is in crucial need of finding some new life on Raw. To say The A-LISTER is drowning would be a major understatement and it’s baffling to see how far down he’s dropped since becoming a babyface. At one point in time Miz appeared to be on his way to make it into the Universal Championship title scene.
This all occurred earlier this year during the road to WrestleMania when Miz was blindsided and viciously attacked by his tag team partner the self-proclaimed Best in the World Shane McMahon. The two had recently won the SmackDown Tag Team Championships from The Bar at the 2019 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. The very next month at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, Miz would lose the tag team titles to The Usos.
At the Fastlane pay-per-view held in Miz’s hometown of Cleveland, Ohio with Mr. Miz at ringside, and Shane would deliver a great performance but unable to regain the SmackDown Tag Team Championships from Jimmy and Jey Uso. As Miz was getting support from his dad and his partner, Shane revealed his true colours by attacking him and his father in front of his hometown crowd.
Shane’s reasoning behind his heinous attack was that he wasn’t The Best in the World because he won a trophy at WWE Crown Jewel, he’s the best because he’s a McMahon. The egocentric boss claimed he thoroughly enjoyed choking Miz unconscious so much that he wanted to face him one-on-one at WrestleMania. Not that Miz had any choice in the matter because after all, Shane was his boss.
The two former-partners-turned-rivals engaged in a chaotic and brutal Anything Goes Match that had ended controversially as Miz Superplexed Shane off a ridiculously high camera Scaffolding that left both men unconscious and Shane landed on top of Miz to gain the victory.

A few months later at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Miz and Shane would do battle once more except this time it was inside a steel cage just as it appeared that Miz would finally gain his comeuppance Shane slipped out and landed on the floor to win the match.
Miz would set his sights on the King of the Ring Tournament but was prematurely eliminated in the first round by King Corbin. Following yet another heartbreaking loss Miz would enter into a small program with the Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and his loudmouth mouthpiece Sami Zayn. After weeks of sneak attacks by the dangerous duo, Miz would attempt to make history by becoming a nine-time Intercontinental Champion at the Clash of Champions pay-per-view but was unsuccessful.
Miz is holding a very special edition of MizTv with WWE Legends Hulk Hogan and The Nature Boy Ric Flair on next week’s Raw premiere episode.

Nobody else has even thought of this but what if on the monumental episode Miz picks his moment to humiliate and bash two of the biggest icons and legends in WWE history? I could not think of a better way to garnish some serious heel heat than to shock the WWE Universe and turn heel in the process.
I believe we can all agree that Miz has always portrayed a terrific heel in his illustrious career and whoever thought that Miz should play a sympathetic babyface should be fired. It’s not working and the only possible way it would’ve was if Miz defeated the self-proclaimed Best in the World on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
On the same episode, Cedric Alexander looks to dethrone The Phenomenal AJ Styles and win the United States Championship, perhaps Miz could feud with The Heart of 205 Live over the prestigious US Title or set his sights on dethroning The Kingslayer Seth Rollins and becoming the Universal Champion. Either way Miz needs to do something to save his career from flushing down the toilet.
