Jim Ross on If The Miz Will Ever be WWE Champion Again

Jim Ross on If The Miz Will Ever be WWE Champion Again

On this week’s “Grilling JR,” Jim Ross and Conrad Thompson talked about the career of The Miz.

The Miz is considered to be an overachiever and an unexpected star in the business after MTV’s The Real World and after being signed by WWE after coming in as the runner-up in the 4th season of Tough Enough.

Jim Ross was asked what went into the decision of giving Miz the WWE.

“I don’t really know because Vince made that decision. I would say it was a gut feeling that Vince developed to have enough confidence that Miz could carry his share of the water as the WWE Champion. It was also an interesting way to get through that WrestleMania and when people left that show, were they thinking about Miz retaining the title or were they looking forward to Rock and Cena. We both know the answer to that. They are looking for Rock and Cena. So, he was a role player that night even as the champion. I think Vince felt it served a lot of masters for that point in time. But, that’s how I would look at it.”

Why wasn’t Miz given a second title run.

“You never say never in WWE because they do strange booking and they come out of left field from time to time which is not unusual for any booker or any creative group. I don’t know that he will be the WWE Champion again. Would it surprise me? No, but I would kind of doubt it. He’s one of those guys like Jake Roberts used to be. He didn’t need the title to be over. As long as the Miz is able to communicate in whatever form that may take, he will be a top guy.”
