** It's funny how he's known as a promo guy now when back in his first appearance on Monday Night Raw, the Miz [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7iP1vjeKIQ botched his promo]] while hosting the 2006 Diva Search. He forgot his lines and ended up reading the phone number for casting votes written on his wrist in the most obvious manner.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: His 2017 feud with Wrestling/DeanAmbrose. Miz's sheer [[TheParanoiac paranoia]] of a potential ambush drove him to accidentally destroy [[Wrestling/{{Maryse}} his wife]]'s gift for him -- which not only semi-ruined their relationship, but also turned out to be AllForNothing [[ProperlyParanoid when Ambrose managed to ambush him anyway]]. Then, during a later show, said misunderstanding and subsequent ambush '''''reoccurred almost word-for-word''''' -- but this time, with Miz finally snapping and retaliating (with BigDamnVillains help from Wrestling/BoDallas and Wrestling/CurtisAxel) against Ambrose, which now arguably felt more like a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds moment than anything else.

The latter ended up driving the former ProperlyParanoid enough to accidentally destroy [[Wrestling/{{Maryse}} his wife]]'s Maryse's gift for him -- which not only semi-ruined twice, in fact -- thus potentially ruining their relationship, but also turned relationship. Therefore, Miz ultimately [[spoiler:recruiting Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel to ZergRush-retaliate]] the crap out to be AllForNothing [[ProperlyParanoid when of Ambrose managed to ambush him anyway]].

* TheScrappy: Miz would be more a BaseBreakingCharacter than a Scrappy; however, almost ''no one'' liked Alex Riley's run as his apprentice, which at the very least was thought to have ran longer than wanted. See {{Rescued|FromTheScrappyHeap}} above for what happened when it finally ended.

Added DiffLines:

** On Summerslam 2014, during his Intercontinental Championship match against Dolph Ziggler, the Miz sells the Famouser weirdly, [[ArtisticLicensePhysics immediately popping up like a spring]] after receiving it before no-selling it entirely and doing a Skull-Crushing Finale as a "counter".
*** As [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] [[https://youtu.be/PLxRwyO5l-U?t=11m50s put it]], the Miz [[WrestlingPsychology oversold the Famouser]] so much [[InsaneTrollLogic it circled back around to no-selling it]].

* FridgeBrilliance: His hiring of the Spirit Squad. While the hiring of ''those two specific guys'' was probably just to screw with Ziggler, it's also perfectly in character for a cocky Hollywood superstar to walk around with an entourage that includes a hot significant other and a couple of enforcer[=/=]bodyguard types.
* FridgeHorror: Whether as a Face or Heel The Miz has been one of WWE's leading Superstars in the Anti-Bullying ''Be-A-Star'' Campaign because of being bullied in his life. Now the horror is this; was it because he was bullied as a child, or because of the Hazing he suffered from early on in his career at the hands of the WWE lockerroom?

** In an online interview, the interviewer mistakenly said that you could see The Miz on TV every Monday, Tuesday[[note]]When ECW was still airing[[/note]] and Wednesday - to which Miz responded "Wednesday? What are we doing Wednesday?". Fast forward to 2012 where Miz would become a regular commentator on ''Main Event'' - which airs on Wednesdays.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Wrestling/MikeAwesome was using "Because I'm AWESOME" as a CatchPhrase years before the Miz, except that he made people ''believe'' it. In his case, it helped that he was a 6'7", 294 lbs. LightningBruiser.

* BadassDecay. So, so much since losing the WWE Championship. It looked for a while that he would come out of it during his time with R-Truth, but after their split, R-Truth is the hotter one of the two. It took winning the IC title and face turn to become bad ass again.
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Once he won the WWE Championship, the IWC, and to an extent casual fans, promptly split in half, especially considering the nature of how he won it. It doesn't help the fact that those who don't like the fact he's champion are split over those thinking he got his push too early (despite being employed since mid-2006), and those who view it as a personal insult to the wrestling business as a whole.

again. Then in his Hollywood heel turn it took Maryse, the IC title, draft split ''[[Wrestling/WWESmackDown SmackDown Live]]'' and a ''Talking Smack'' WorkedShoot meltdown against [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] in order to get it back even stronger.

** In 2009 it was noted how his feud with Cena didn't result in him looking good at all. Two years later the same thing happens, and only on a grander stage, marking Miz's fall from grace.

Six years after that, despite his reinvention as a big-money superstar with a hot wife, it happens yet again, with he and his wife used as a stepping stone for Cena getting engaged.
