Backstage News on Why WWE Is Turning The Miz Babyface

– As you could probably tell by WWE TV lately, there has been a lot of internal talk about turning The Miz babyface. The feeling is that he is one of their best talkers and does a great job representing WWE with promotional and charity work. There is also the strong feeling that The Miz has done everything he can do as a heel.

They are hoping that putting him in a new WWE Studios movie for the Holidays will help with a babyface turn. They are looking for the best way to bring Miz to the next level and the feeling is that the best way to do that is turn him and do it in an organic way. Miz turning babyface isn’t being planned to be a short-term angle and the turn itself will reportedly take time, if WWE has it their way.

The Miz vs. Antonio Cesaro has been discussed as a top feud for early 2013.

  • Josh shut the fuck up nigga u aint shit.

  • luckysalt

    Needed to happen Miz is stale as fuck

  • Austin

    Josh, you are not in the buisness. If you knew about this you wouldn’t be on the dirtsheets.

  • Josh

    Oh CeeJay, I’m in the business, and just because you can “call something” doesn’t mean you should be in it. There’s a LOT of deliberation that goes on. There have been talks about this for longer than a year. Much longer.

  • Bawb

    If he’s a cocky face, it will be something sorely missing from WWE. The whole “I don’t like you” exchange he had with Mick Foley was great. It’s important these faces have an everyman-for-himself attitude.

  • One

    Let Miz go babyface and let Orton have the heel turn he wants. That would make for a great feud in 2013

  • Hank Moody

    I’m still calling him turning on Team Foley this Sunday, so I don’t believe this, but The Miz does need a babyface turn. He’s done as a heel, there’s just nothing left.

  • CM Mark

    Hard to turn a guy face that everyone boos just for showing up at the arena.

  • Zedd

    Putting Miz in a shitty movie is a Great way to make him a face, great thinking WWE!!

  • REALLY? REALLY? ( Miz voice) Lmao 24 of yal don’t like what I said? Thats not the only reason I should be in the business. And I called it a year ago. But he will be great face if given the right time. And storylines.

  • Robinson

    I think the miz can be the next Jericho type. He can be a face but still be a liner amd talk shit to everybody

  • Really

    Hate or Love The Miz but he does put the work in. Cena cant wrestle and can bore people into a coma but he had become the top guy by putting the hard work in.

  • 1919dpg

    sadly cesaro’s current persona isn’t working. he should reform the kings of wrestling and gain momentum from there.

  • sam mccourt

    @JJC he was face when he first appeared in WWE on Smackdown when his catchphrase was “Hoorah”

  • nick

    I really like the idea that somebody turning a face is getting rko’d by somebody who is tunring heel at the same time

  • xXx

    if they take their time in a slow pace it’ll be a good turn, not forced like others

  • jerry

    this is absolutely perfect, perfect timing. WWE has been lacking this element for the past few years if you ask me. I also like that they are doing it organically instead of a one night turn.

    MIZ has talent, face it, admit it. I think they are grooming him to be the next cena, meaning as far as outside the ring goes..appearances,charity work, etc. he cleans up like a shiny penny, and will be a great face, which WWE needs more of right now.

    they are doing the same with Orton.

  • Men on a Mission

    For once I agree with all the comments in the above article. Miz has gone as far as he can as a heel, and I think he would make a good face (Lord knows WWE needs new babyfaces). And he does do a lot of promo and charity work. I’m interested to see how this goes.

  • Alan Wake

    Well I’m happy that Cesaro will be in a “top feud”

  • Sammo

    A face turn for The Miz has been rumoured by many for a few months, ceejay.

    Maybe we should ALL be in the business?

  • Jesus Jamal Christ

    Get off your horse ceejay miz has never been a face so it’s simple logic to see if he is well rounded in that aspect. He’s annoying as a heel (and human) and I believe he’ll be a boring face.

  • Boy did I call that! I’m glad that they’re doing it and taking time with it. I swear I should be in the business!
