Miz is a modern made star. Getting his start on reality television he forged a patch to stardom in the WWE. He was perhaps brought up too fast evidenced by a very poorly received main event at WrestleMania with John Cena. Its most likely that he has had his shot at the top and wont see the main event again hell remain a well compensated upper mid carder. Although like Ryder The Miz is a proven hustler and will likely find other lucrative ways to bring home the bacon.
