WWE SmackDown: 10 Things You Might Have Missed (Jan 10)
10. The Miz & Maryse Were In Mourning
At No Mercy in October of last year, The Miz looked like his confidence had been shattered into tiny pieces after losing the WWE Intercontinental Title to Dolph Ziggler. On the next edition of SmackDown, Miz showed up dressed in dark colours and looked for all the world like he was mourning the loss of his championship.
Lightning struck again last week when Miz dropped the belt to Dean Ambrose. Once again looking to sell how grave an impact such a defeat has had on his career, the heel appeared on this week’s show wearing all black. Alongside her husband, Maryse looked like she was attending a funeral.
This had to be deliberate, it’s hard to believe The Miz and Maryse had coincidentally picked out such a dark choice of clothing for this specific episode of SmackDown. It’s really these little touches that made 2016 a year of resurgence for Miz.
Now, he’s one of the top heels on SmackDown. This attention to detail is exactly why he’s one of the best.
