They say they are “Mizerable.” It was a “Miztake.” Some are saying the championship is being “Mizhandled.” Ever since The Miz won the heavyweight belt people have been saying that they are going to stop watching Raw or WWE altogether until he loses it. Hell, some people are acting like they’re gonna give up on wrestling because of this. Episode 195 of Tha O Show has the most comments I have ever seen posted since Episode 100 and most of it is in protest of The Miz. I have one question for all of you.
What took you so long?
As I write this I couldn’t tell you who has the belt on Smackdown. Who are the tag champs? Does Dolph Ziggler still have the Intercontinental title? If it took The Miz getting the belt off of Orton for you to finally tap out on WWE or Raw you have a stronger stomach than me because I haven’t been able to enjoy the show for a long ass time now.
Smackdown moved to SyFy. I don’t have cable and I won’t even bother to find it online. It’s sad but true. I have watched Raw live online maybe four times in two years. I don’t watch NXT. I’ve caught TNA maybe twice in a year or so. I use Angrymarks.com the same way a groundhog uses his shadow. “Oh, it’s still shitty? Alright. I’ll wait it out.” I’m not watching based on reviews, but coverage.
The thing that confuses me is how surprised everyone is about The Miz winning the title. I mean, to me the only shocking part was him getting it from Orton. Orton is one of the few guys left that I even enjoy watching currently. I have never been a fan of The Miz. I didn’t like him on Real World. I didn’t like him with John Morrison. I didn’t like him with Jericho or Big Show. I don’t like his “style” of wrestling. I hate his moveset particularly his finisher. Fuck, I really hate that move. Hated when Julio Dinero and Jeff Jarrett used it and I hate it now. Know what though? None of the reasons I stated are why I don’t really like The Miz being champ.
It’s not because of the amount of time he has spent wrestling. I know a lot of people say you need to wreck yourself on the indie scene first. You have to spend years close to poor to earn a spot. Come on now. Those days are damn near over. The Miz got in the way a lucky few do now. And being upset because he got the title “too fast”? Lots of guys got to rise and/or get a belt fast. Carlito, Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, Sheamus, Drew McIntyre. Once they got into WWE or WCW they rose quickly.
The reason I don’t like The Miz is because he represents everything I hate about wrestling currently. Too much emphasis is spent on talking than entertaining me with wrestling skills. I know more about the guys that have beaten him than the ones he has beaten. He is carried through matches. He has never done anything that made me even for a moment think “This dude is gonna be a champ one day!”
I’m not gonna bash Frank for liking The Miz. Millions love Cena. But when you like someone or something and others don’t and challenge you on it have ammunition. I liked Orton back when no one else but girls did when he had the AJ Styles type hair and the cross body finisher because I saw something special in him and defended him when friends or people online shit on me for liking him. The Miz? I don’t see it and I never have.
You all can keep watching and be mad like you have for years now. Me? I got "the F out" a long time ago.
