Former WWE writer Vince Russo recently spoke out about The Miz’s recent appearances on Monday Night RAW, stating that the wrestler’s gimmick had become predictable and that he should be taken off TV for a while to make a fresh comeback.

The Miz appeared on this week’s episode of WWE RAW claiming that he was responsible for the success of WrestleMania. He also voiced his unhappiness with the surprise matches involving Shane McMahon, Pat McAfee, and Snoop Dogg. However, his speech was interrupted by the returning Matt Riddle.

During the Legion of RAW podcast, Russo expressed his views about the wrestler’s gimmick, saying that it was time for The Miz to take a break from WWE television. He added that the wrestler’s act of repeatedly getting beaten up and hosting Miz TV had become stale and made him a “channel changer” for viewers.

According to Russo, The Miz needed to be taken off TV for a while to feel fresh again. He suggested that the wrestler should be sent away for six months or more to rejuvenate his character and make him interesting again for the audience.


“Bro, my God! Miz needs to go home for a year. I gotta be honest with you, this is not a shot at Miz, this is the writing of the show. He’s gotta be the biggest channel changer on this show at this point. When Miz comes out, there’s nothing to see. here’s never anything to see. They need to send this guy away and give him six months or whatever. His act, saying the same thing, Miz TV and getting his b**t kicked, it’s tired bro.”

The Miz has been a fixture in WWE for over a decade, winning numerous championships and becoming one of the most recognizable faces of the company. However, as Russo pointed out, his current gimmick has become stale and it might be time for the wrestler to take a break and come back stronger.
