“He was never truly respected”

The latest release of Jim Ross ” Grilling JR ” podcast revolved around WrestleMania 27 PPV, which was the mainstay of the WWE Championship game between The Miz and John Cena.

Miz’s rise to the top of the WWE caught a few fans back in 2010, and Jim Ross believes the company did not properly book the A-Lister during his first world title.

Jim Ross explained that Miz did not receive the same respect as other traditional WWE champions. However, Ross could not explain the reason for WWE’s misbehavior with Miz’s title rule.

“I think even during Miz’s run; he was never truly respected as traditional champions were. I don’t know if it was Vince’s apprehension or Vince waiting for Miz to catch some kind of thing or to really get over it and connect with to the audience wherever it may be. “

I believe the title should go last: Jim Ross on the conflict over the main event of WrestleMania 27

During the podcast, host Conrad Thompson revealed that there was talk in the WWE of banning the match between Undertaker and Triple H without stopping at the main event of WrestleMania 27 during the WWE title competition. However, Jim Ross stated that a match for a world title should always last last.

“But I will always say that your main title, which this was, should last last. Period. To protect that property, your championship and the image it projects, and the other thing is if you want to put pressure on young Mizo, you force him to followed by Undertaker and Triple H. Now you have to put on work boots. So I believe the title should last. Period. That’s my position on it. “

The first reign of Miz’s WWE Championship lasted 160 days and ended with John Cen in May 2011. Miz recently won the WWE title for the second time in her career, only to cede it to Bobby Lashley of RAW within eight days of the episode.

Miz is currently scheduled to team up with John Morrison in a tag team match against Bad Bunny and Damian Priest at WrestleMania 37.
