Quote :
WWE officials contemplated months ago of putting The Miz back in the WWE Championship picture come January. That did not happen and he has not won a televised singles match since the December 5, 2011 edition of Raw. There are people within WWE who believe top officials are blaming him for the Survivor Series drawing a disappointing buy number. Teaming with R-Truth, he appeared in the main event against John Cena and The Rock.

The pay-per-view event, which featured The Rock’s first wrestling match in over seven years, is estimated to have garnered 260,000 buys worldwide. It was reported that of that figure, 160,000 pay-per-view purchases came from the United States.

The estimate compares to 244,000 buys in 2010 and 235,000 in 2009, which nearly got the show scrapped from the annual pay-per-view line-up.

REALLY? R-Truth was in that match as well and i would say Miz is a bigger star than he is

:laugh: how they could blame Miz is beyond moronic but quite funny, it smells of pure pass the blame

The biggest problem with any buy-rate was that Cena was kicking both Truth and Miz' ass on his own for weeks so rendered Rocks help pointless then when Rock did show up he too beat the crap out the both of them on the go home show

By the time the match came along neither Miz nor Truth individually or as a team presented them with any likelyhood of a challenge, it was the poorest booked angle of the year so unless Miz booked it I fail to see how it could possibly be his fault

This was the card:

Dolph Ziggler (c) Vs John Morrison - United States Championship

Beth Phoenix (c) Vs Eve Torres Lumberjill match for the WWE Divas Championship

Team Barrett (Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Hunico and Dolph Ziggler) Vs Team Orton (Randy Orton, Sheamus, Mason Ryan, Kofi Kingston and Sin Cara)

Big Show Vs Mark Henry (c) for the World Heavyweight Championship

CM Punk Vs Alberto Del Rio (c) for the WWE Championship

The Rock and John Cena Vs Awesome Truth

So it gets blamed on Miz when you have Big Show Vs Mark Henry, Del Rio wasn't drawing as champion and Ziggler Vs Morrison was a squash, after the event it wouldn't encourage people to buy the PPV if they hadn't seen it either.

If I recall Cena squashed Awesome Truth single handedly in the build up to the PPV on multiple occasions, why would anyone pay to see Awesome Truth squashed again?

I was planning on buying it on PPV, but they did such a shit job of selling the damned thing beforehand, I changed my mind. what really did it was when Rock and Cena spent more time in the big interview spot talking about things trending on sodding Twitter than their opponents, they'd dominated Awesome Truth single-handedly for weeks; the whole thing was the most fucked up angle of 2011 by some distance.
