The Awesome Rise of The Miz

After Bragging Rights, The Miz would make history by becoming the first WWE superstar to ever hold three championships simultaneously. He was already the U.S. Champion, and in February 2010 he and Big Show (ShowMiz) defeated DX and The Straight Edge Society (CM Punk & Luke Gallows) to win both the WWE and World Tag Team Championships. They would lose the titles to The Hart Dynasty (Tyson Kidd and David Smith Jr.) later that year, but The Miz had bigger fish to fry by then. On July 18th 2010, while still holding the U.S. Championship, The Miz would win the Money in the Bank ladder match. This ensured him a WWE title shot at any time of his choosing throughout the next year. He would lose the U.S. Championship to Daniel Bryan at Night of Champions 2010, but that was just to make some room for bigger and better things. On the November 22nd edition of Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton would successfully defend his WWE Championship against Nexus leader Wade Barrett, but would be left in pretty bad shape after the match. That’s when The Miz struck, and cashed in his championship opportunity. After a Skull Crushing Finale, Mike Mizanin’s “far-fetched” dream had finally come true. The Miz was the WWE Champion. It was truly hard earned and well deserved. He had overcome all the negative perceptions of himself to reach the top of the industry he always wanted to be apart of. The “annoying reality star” who “couldn’t wrestle,” was now holding the most prestigious championship in all of pro wrestling. They say “It’s lonely at the top,” but they’ve obviously never had to share the WrestleMania spotlight with John Cena and The Rock.
