I know the Miz gets a lot of love right now (and rightfully so), but I remember everyone raving about this boring Balor/Rollins match on Raw a couple of months ago. So I gave it a shot.
Miz was at the booth, shining himself after the birth of his kid. And, had he been presented as a baby face in that program, then fine. But that's not even the issue I had with his commentary, because at least he came across like a genuine good guy.
But my main takeaway was in how he constantly referred to Finn and Seth as "performers" and "entertainers." I mean, he must have said it a dozen times during the match. At one point, he was running down his resume and wanted to reference how he beat John Cena in the main event of a WrestleMania. But he can't call him a great wrestler or anything, so he refers to Cena as one of the greatest entertainers of all time.
It's some of the silliest shit I've ever heard.
I immediately wondered who the fuck would ever actually talk like this? I mean, Miz could've gotten away with calling John one of the greatest "champions" or something, but it was like he was so hung up on trying to speak the correct buzzwords that he carefully selected only the safest of options available to him. Just awful. Truly awful.
