* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Puns notwithstanding, his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUVJvA2Jctw current theme, "I Came To Play"]], is pretty cool. That being said, it could change to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DkCx2es3pc "Hate Me Now"]] (a song so appropriate for Miz, it's not even funny) and nobody would really complain.

** The [=MITB=] briefcase (although it was usually [[HoYay Alex Riley]] that carried it) to the same degree.

* CriticalResearchFailure: He deserves to be drop kicked by time traveling Jumping Bomb Angels for stating the women of the 1980s did nothing interesting on the ''[[WrittenByTheWinners Monday Night War]]'' {{vanity project}}. * [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music Of Awwwwwwesoooooommmmmmeeeeee!!!!!!]]: His [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUVJvA2Jctw current theme, "I Came To Play"]], is pretty cool. That being said, it could change to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DkCx2es3pc "Hate Me Now"]] (a song so appropriate for Miz, it's not even funny) and nobody would really complain. * DeaderThanDisco: Less than two years after he lost his push, the Miz's reputation on the internet turned almost completely toxic. On Wrestling Observer Newsletter's year-end awards in 2012, he ''jumped to #2'' on the "Most Overrated" list from out of the top 10, despite the fact that he was demoted to the midcard that year. By 2015, there are very few WWE fans who still like The Miz. However, after 2015, many felt he was actually underrated these days, as Miz is currently one of the only heels that can draw legitimate heel heat. * DracoInLeatherPants: Seriously. {{Smar|tMark}}ks have a good deal of affection for him, as he's one of the funniest Heels on Wrestling/{{WWE}} programming, and his theme is pretty badass too. ** Like many other heels that have gotten this treatment, this was eventually paid off with a HeelFaceTurn for Miz.

** Also, his TakeThat at The Rock right before ''[=WrestleMania=] XXVII'' for his role as the host of said show. He was recently announced as the host of Summerslam 2013. Also doubles as HypocriticalHumor, as Miz got his start on the main roster as the host of Smackdown and of the widely-disliked WWE Diva Search.

* JerkassWoobie: There's really just one time he fit this trope, but it's worth mentioning: the night he cut [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKU_k9mcZsc this promo]]. Despite the fact that he's delivering it in character as a {{Heel}}, a lot of it's a shoot, and JBL would later admit flat out in an interview that he hazed the hell out of Miz back in the day and wasn't the least bit sorry for doing it - because he wanted to see if Miz had what it took to be a part of the locker room. ** Nowadays on commentary Bradshaw openly admits that he once hated the Miz but now respects him for what he's endured and accomplished.

* {{Misblamed}}: He was apparently blamed and punished in early 2012 for the low Survivor Series buyrate despite being only one of four men involved in the main event. The other three participants? John Cena, The Rock, [[TheLastofTheseIsNotLiketheOthers and]] [[Wrestling/RonKillings R-Truth.]] Also keep in mind that the match was set up through Cena being overwhelmed by Awesome Truth and asking Rock for help, only for the next few weeks on Raw to see Cena overcoming them '''by himself''', killing off all sense of unpredictability this match could have beforehand.

* OvershadowedByAwesome: ** He got back in to the feud by cutting an amazing promo where he destroyed Cena using [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome The People's Elbow.]], entering the ring dressed as The Rock [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beating the hell out of Cena again the following week,]] kicking his ass all the way back up the entrance ramp and then bouncing Cena's head off everything that had a metal surface, which included hitting a Rock Bottom and later finishing it with a Skull Crushing Finale on the WWE logo stand. * ReplacementScrappy: The Miz was fairly popular during the million dollar tough enough but was far behind the winner and was audibly booed, even then back then. He didn't become really until that Tough Enough winner, Daniel Puder (a legit competitor strong enough to ''easily'' beat both Miz and Ryback at arm wrestling, skilled enough to nearly out shoot ''Wrestling/KurtAngle'', and then beat Miz ''again'' in a boxing match), was unceremoniously released and The Miz was put on television in his place. As if to fuel the first, Miz was also made host of the Diva Search, long after that segment had overstayed its welcome. Poor bastard never stood a chance. * RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Just look at his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7iP1vjeKIQ first appearance on the A-Show.]] Who would have thought this fool would be cashing in Money in the Bank on Wrestling/RandyOrton four years later to become WWE Champion?

* TheScrappy: YMMV as to whether Miz counts as a scrappy, however, almost ''no one'' likes his apprentice Alex Riley. At the very least, they think he's run his course as Miz's lackey. ** Which might have worked out pretty well for Riley; he got a HUGE pop on the 5/23/11 RAW when Miz's [[KickTheDog insults and]] [[NeverMyFault blame-shifting]] finally caused him to snap and give Miz a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. *** And if that didn't work, Miz returns the favor in the 7/4/11 RAW and [[TakeThatScrappy beats Riley senseless]] with anything the arena can give him [[VillainousBreakdown after losing to him one many times]].

* LoveToHate: Miz is one of the few heels on the roster that can still draw heel heat -- the "good" kind. Even people who are huge fans of his love seeing him get beat up.

** Many people who had previously hated Miz consider his work from 2014 forward to be a big step up from most of his previous work, feeling that he plays his pompous Hollywood celebrity heel gimmick very well and also that he's in just the right spot on the roster. If that wasn't enough, his tag team with Wrestling/DamienSandow may have been.
