The Miz has made a name for himself in the WWE as one of the company's most prolific bad guys. The Miz is a loud, obnoxious, and overconfident character that is able to get almost any fan to hate him.
Even though he is a bad guy on TV, his journey to the WWE is a Cinderella story that you can't help but get behind of. He tried to get his name on WWE's radar by joining reality shows, then worked on the independent scene and competitions, until he was finally signed as a host.

The Miz went on to prove everyone wrong as he held the company's most prestigious title and even went on to the main event--WrestleMania. Also, after over 10 years with the company, The Miz is still on top of his game and getting better and better.
