The Awesome Rise of The Miz

In June of 2007, The Miz was drafted to WWE‘s ECW brand as a part of the yearly Draft Show. That’s where his career started to gain some traction. After unsuccessfully challenging for CM Punk‘s ECW Championship at Cyber Sunday 2007, The Miz would go on to form a tag team with another one of WWE‘s up and comers, John Morrison. In November of 2007, The Miz and Morrison would win the WWE Tag Team Championships from Matt Hardy and MVP, launching both their careers to new heights. In February of 2008, the duo came out with “The Dirt Sheet,” a web series on WWE.com where they would cover pop culture topics and talk trash about other wrestlers. The concept was years ahead of it’s time. The show was a success, and helped show off both men’s promo skills, specifically The Miz‘s. Like all great WWE tag teams though, The Miz and Morrison would eventually break up and embark on their own individual singles runs. The Miz would move to Monday Night Raw and win the U.S. Championship, his first singles title. While Morrison would go to Smackdown and eventually claim the Intercontinental Championship. This would set up a match between the two Champions at WWE‘s interpromotional pay-per-view, Bragging Rights 2009. The match itself was okay, but the real memorable part of the feud was their one off edition of The Dirt Sheet in which both men referred to the other as the “Marty Janetty” of the team. Making reference to The Rockers, and Shawn Michaels‘ less successful tag team partner. So far, to the surprise of many, it’s The Miz who has been the more successful of the two, and it’s not even close.
