– The Miz has fallen out of favor with WWE management in recent months – and the Survivor Series buyrate and R-Truth’s botched move from RAW are not the only reasons.
Miz was a big favorite of several influencial decision makers a year ago around the time he won the WWE Championship because of the way he handled media appearances and represented the company.
The feeling now is that Miz has regressed, both in the ring and on the microphone. The feeling is that when Miz was booked as a mid-carder before, he was hungry and forced officials to make him a headliner. Miz is now relegated back to mid-card status and isn’t giving WWE much motivation to elevate him again.
– WWE recently signed 21 year old UK wrestler Andre Tyson to a developmental deal. He wrestled in the UK as MVK Valkabious and is expected to start at FCW soon.
– As previously reported, WWE has signed former ROH star Chris Hero. The medical issue that prevented WWE from signing him sooner is now believed to be his naturally elevated testosterone/epitestosterone levels. It took months and many rounds of testing to prove that the high testosterone level was natural.
