Former WWE champion The Miz, recently spoke out about his achievement of being named the #1 wrestler on the PWI Top 500 list. The list was compiled during the period of June 1, 2010 to May 31, 2011. During that period, The Miz rose to the top of the WWE by becoming the WWE champion after a successful reign as the United States Champion. The Miz held the WWE title for 160 days. On Friday, The Miz made the following comments via his Twitter page:
“@mikethemiz named PWI 500’s #1 wrestler of the year! No one expected that of him when he was on The Real World”
WWE News – John Cena comments on WWE title confusion
The Miz was on the 10th season of “The Real World” where he was heavily criticized for his personality. He would go on to join the cast of WWE’s Tough Enough in 2004. Although he lost, the WWE was interested in him and signed him to a developmental contract. The Miz was treated inferior by his peers due to his TV role. It took several years before he could earn the respect of his peers. To this day, the Miz still talks about how other WWE wrestlers would haze him and make him change in the hallways because he wasn’t allowed in the locker room.
At first, many wrestling fans blasted the PWI Top 500 list as they didn’t think that The Miz deserved this recognition. The Miz came in 12th for the 2010 list as AJ Styles beat out John Cena and CM Punk for the top spot. For the 2011 list, The Miz edged out CM Punk for the top spot. I think it’s pretty clear that CM Punk will take the #1 spot next year as he has transcended the sport with his recent storyline.
