Stars In Progress…Ziggler, Miz, R-Truth and Daniel Bryan

The Miz
One SMALL Step Up

The MizI put down the way WWE handled the Miz/Truth break-up in my "What's Bothering Me" feature yesterday, but rumors of Miz working a future program with current WWE Champion, CM Punk, gives him a small step up regardless. Working with Punk is never a bad thing.

The question is whether WWE is planning on taking Miz seriously as a single's competitor again or not. They didn't take Awesome Truth seriously toward the end of their time together, so it's likely they won't put much stock into Miz by himself either.

My main concern is the timing of everything going forward. One can only assume that Truth will want revenge on Miz upon his return. That should only be a month out from now, give or take a little. Does Miz work Punk at TLC and then move on to Truth? Do they wait until next year for Miz to challenge Punk?

These questions are clearly working off the idea that recent reports are true and WWE does have plans for Miz to work a program with Punk at some point in the near future.

Does Miz/Punk draw money? Does Miz/Truth draw money?

I'm not sure I can answer either of those two questions yet.
