Corey Graves is never afraid to share his opinions on his After The Bell podcast. On the most recent episode, Graves and NXT commentator Vic Joseph talked about the segment with Edge and The Miz from the most recent Raw. Corey put over Miz big time during the segment.

Graves said that The Miz is unsung, yet a valuable player for WWE. He praised his durability, noting that he is hardly ever injured. He said the former WWE Champion is special.

“Miz is, in my opinion, for my money, maybe the most unsung yet valuable player in WWE. Because for years, until recently, Miz has never been injured. Miz can get a reaction. Miz can put on a good match with anybody.

Miz is just the all-purpose utility guy that for some reason is never viewed in that same light with a Randy Orton, with an Edge, with a John Cena. But in my opinion, if you look at Miz’s body of work, in WWE and beyond, absolutely Miz belongs in those conversations.


“I understand his character is such that he’s grating and he’s not a tough-guy badass type, but that’s what makes Miz so special. Miz can get under your skin and speak like very few in this business can, and has done so for a long, long, long time, and for me, Miz doesn’t get nearly enough credit.”

Miz recently welcomed his wife Maryse back to WWE Raw. There were rumors that the couple would feud with Beth Phoenix and Edge floating around. Beth recently announced that she was leaving her commentary duties with NXT 2.0, so time will tell.
