Saw another promo for "Reality Check" Miz coming to SD! this week. I guess his gimmick is that he's a reality star? I've seen him on the various MTV Real World shows, but I'm not sure how well he'll be received by the WWE crowds.

Has anyone actually seen him wrestle outside of the Tough Enough competition? I always thought he had some character potential, but assumed he would end up in a Josh Matthews role because of his size. Admittedly, I haven't seen him recently, so perhaps he's bulked up.

I've seen bits and peices of his stuff from UPW (i think) and I've heard that DDP is big on him, so we'll see how he's recieved in the ring.

I've seen him wrestle for weeks in OVW. He's okay for a new guy just starting, I guess. Better on the mic than in the ring. I feel he has a tendency to blow spots on a regular basis, but I'll add on that I'm probably overly critical of the guy as I think the whole "reality show" gag he's been using since he first started is pretty lame.

Funny enough, they were just jettisoning that gimmick for him in OVW these past couple of weeks. Now WWE is looking to bring it back full-force.

I gotta tell you, I'm probably less excited about this debut than for any other hyped debut in memory (I normally love hyped debuts, even if the gimmick blows.) I mean, who cares? "I was on reality TV" isn't really much of a gimmick -- tons of losers have been on reality TV. I suppose the biggest reason for my lack of excitement is that he seems to be a babyface -- I could imagine him, maybe, as the kind of heel you just want to punch hard in the face, but why am I supposed to like this guy?

Meltzer compares him to Jimmy Valient - good at getting the crowd hyped up, lousy stuff in the ring.

I grew up in Memphis. That's not a very good compliment.

He'll be a good manager who can tag occasionally. I hate what he stands for too and i'll be happy to boo him.

I personally can not wait for Mike The Miz Mizanin to debut. I hope he is very successful. I think he will be a great wrestler. He has a huge heart and passion for wrestling. I have to admit I am a big reality fan and I have watched everything Mike Mizanin has been in and am a member of his website. I think I am more excited for this debut than any other hyped debut ever.

When Maven is done with VH1's "Surreal Lifr", I can see the writers probably going and making Miz and Maven a tag team because of their reality show experiences.
