Is Miz...Tough Enough?

By Speed on the Beat  (@speedonthebeat)

By now, I'm sure you've heard or seen the news. In the wake of the controversy with Hulk Hogan, The Miz has replaced him as the third judge on Tough Enough. Miz, a TE alum himself (along with NXT mentor), is obviously no stranger to reality TV. Nor is he a stranger to stranger-than-usual pick your superstar adventures. But, there's something about Miz that makes me question whether or not he's really an astute enough talent to choose "the next WWE superstar."

With Bryan, Paige, and Hogan, you had a grand total of close to seventy years of business experience. Miz, while "successful" in some aspects of professional wrestling, such as being a face of WWE, he's...well, he's just not that good inside the ring. He's serviceable at best. And, no, Hogan wasn't cranking out five-stars all willy nilly, he was, at least, Hulk friggin' Hogan.

I wonder why WWE couldn't have picked someone with a bit more experience. Additionally, The Miz is best when he has a mic in his hand. He's an interviewer with "eh" wrestling skills. And his Tough Talk post-show was typically better than the actual show because of this. So, why risk ruining what's somewhat making the show work to cut some corners?

Hell if I know. But, I really feel that Miz should not be the third judge. Even Paula Abdul had some semblance of talent and skill recognition outside of being a pretty face who interviewed well. As always, though, that's just my opinion.

Until next time.
