Big 2013 Feud for Cesaro, WWE Ready to Take Miz to Next Level, More Backstage News

- As you could probably tell by WWE TV lately, there has been a lot of internal talk about turning The Miz babyface. The feeling is that he is one of their best talkers and does a great job representing WWE with promotional and charity work. There is also the strong feeling that The Miz has done everything he can do as a heel.

They are hoping that putting him in a new WWE Studios movie for the Holidays will help with a babyface turn. They are looking for the best way to bring Miz to the next level and the feeling is that the best way to do that is turn him and do it in an organic way. Miz turning babyface isn’t being planned to be a short-term angle and the turn itself will reportedly take time, if WWE has it their way.

The Miz vs. Antonio Cesaro has been discussed as a top feud for early 2013.

    As long as the US Title stays away from the feud because the title will just devalue the feud.

  • Lisa

    Miz is awesome.

  • Opie

    I’ve always liked The Miz as a Heel, I cant wait to see him as a Face after being a Heel for so long, I just hope they don’t make him into another Cena, Orton, Sheamus SuperHero type Face

  • Jay

    What is going on, Punk is heel now, Orton wants to be heel, Miz is turning babyface, and Del Rio is trying to be a cool heel and getting a girl. You would almost think WWE is becoming….logical. Awesome

  • Chelsii.

    Logical? What girl would want to touch that annoying accent with over oiled hair like a grease monkey.

    To be honest, nothing against Antonio, but I think Miz is a little above him, unless WWE push Antonio as a heel I think Miz should feud with others like Dolph Ziggler. That’d be epic!!!

  • Rybork Laserback

    never been a fan of The Miz or Alberto Del Rio. Both are over-pushed heels who got an undeserved push over talented guys like Cm Punk, Dolph Ziggler and Wade Barrett. I’m not saying Miz hasn’t worked hard, i just think he isn’t main event material and his run really devalued the WWE Championship, and as for Del Rio, he is just boring and his family heritage/backstage politics is probably the only reason he is getting so pushed, otherwise i don’t want him even above mid-card.

    But Miz is turning face, i’m going to give him a chance. But if he’s getting a big main event push as face, count me out.

    Good for the miz. Look at that former group and he came out to be the star. Face turn for miz? Ill like it but y’all guys won’t.

  • JamesBooth

    Good thing really coz Miz has probably done it all for his heel persona as for now. Some bit of change is very welcome, and it would be all the more better if orton turned heel at the same time. Plus it should be interesting to see how miz can work with Cesaro.

    @Me Why would the US Championship devalue the feud? If anything this is what the fucking Title needs!! A upper midcarder / main eventer going after one of the secondary belts is great.

  • Bart

    Thank fuck for that. Patience is a great virtue that WWE has to learn.

  • xXwindsofchangeXx

    @rob But Miz is a former WWE Champion. And Antonio’s much, much better than the belt he’s holding. To call the U.S. Title a secondary title is almost laughable. It’s a tertiary title and everybody knows it. WWE doesn’t even recognize it as a secondary title. Otherwise, for one, it would substitute for the IC title in Triple Crown honors, and it never has.

    I don’t think the US Title is salvageable, to be completely honest. They should retire it and reintroduce it at a different time when they feel they can book it RIGHT. The title picture for the United States Championship gets less set-up than the Divas’ title, and that is INEXCUSABLE. Either have actual feuds for the US belt or RETIRE THE FUCKING BELT.

    Now, if Miz and Cesaro feuded in the future for the IC Title, I wouldn’t have any issue with that. They used to have the same problem, but I believe the prestige of the IC belt has recovered enough (due in no small part to going back to the white belt and former main eventers like Christian and Big Show having the title) that having those two guys feud over it wouldn’t be such a burial. That should be the title Cesaro’s holding, to be honest.

    It will be interesting to see the Miz as a face.

  • brandon

    Miz as a face is long overdue.

  • Kristine

    They should send him to NXT and learn him how to carry a match first.
