Jim Ross Gives His Take On The Miz And His Viral Promo

WWE Network
Jim Ross recently blogged his thoughts about The Miz cutting the now virtually infamous viral promo on Daniel Bryan.

Here is what Good ‘Ole JR had to say:

“@mikethemiz created a buzz in social media circles after his reality based, organic sounding promo that Miz aggressively executed on ‘Talking Smack’ on the WWE Network after Smackdown Live went off the air Tuesday night. Miz’s promo represented his best work IMO in a long while as he seemingly expressed himself from his heart and not from his memory. Few wrestlers in today’s marketplace are truly accomplished in being able to have a quick turnaround upon once receiving their promo copy, memorizing it, and then being able to deliver the copy in a real, authentic manner when it counts and that’s on live, TV.  The “I’m Not Working You” feel of any pro wrestling promo always resonates infinitely more than does a memorized promo that sounds as if it is being recited from pure memory without true, motion behind it.

All promotions should consider putting more confidence in their own talents to let them create a large portion of their own promos but with the help of a producer who also realizes that less is truly more when it comes to the heavily scripting of promos and inadvertently producing the personality out of these verbal adventures.
My black hat’s off to The Miz for kicking some verbal ass Tuesday night that will hopefully be the start of more to come from the IC Champion. For the record, It’s not about volume but always about authentic passion and convictions when it comes to cutting a promo.

Final note on cutting promos is to do all that you can to be yourself and not ‘work’ the audience as i tl relates to one’s delivery and sincerity.

Unlike many fans, I have no skin in the game when it comes to how I like or do not like the look of various pro wrestling title belts. Sorry but I’ve never been a “belt guy” and honestly scratch my head at times about how obsessed some fans seemingly are regarding this matter.”
