WWE Raw commentator Corey Graves has named who he believes is the “most unsung yet valuable player in WWE”.
During today’s episode of the After The Bell podcast, one of the topics that Graves and NXT announcer Vic Joseph discussed was the segment involving Edge and The Miz on this past Monday’s Raw.
Joseph explained that, like many fans, he actually felt a bit deflated that Miz came out to interrupt Edge as compared to someone like Finn Balor, Seth Rollins or Kevin Owens, but by the end of the promo, his mindset had changed.
This prompted Corey Graves to talk about how underappreciated Miz is, saying:
“Miz is, in my opinion, for my money, maybe the most unsung yet valuable player in WWE. Because for years, until recently, Miz has never been injured. Miz can get a reaction. Miz can put on a good match with anybody. Miz is just the all-purpose utility guy that for some reason is never viewed in that same light with a Randy Orton, with an Edge, with a John Cena. But in my opinion, if you look at Miz’s body of work, in WWE and beyond, absolutely Miz belongs in those conversations.
“I understand his character is such that he’s grating and he’s not a tough-guy badass type, but that’s what makes Miz so special. Miz can get under your skin and speak like very few in this business can, and has done so for a long, long, long time, and for me, Miz doesn’t get nearly enough credit.”

Reports emerged after Raw that WWE had talked about the possibility of bringing Edge’s wife Beth Phoenix in to be involved in the storyline, since Miz has his own wife Maryse by his side, which was followed by Phoenix announcing her departure from the NXT 2.0 commentary team.
