The Miz has seen a lot of wrestlers come and go during his 18-year tenure within the WWE, which puts him in good stead to be able to answer any question in regards to who he considers being the best wrestler in the company today. This is what he did at the end of January while talking to The Ringer podcast when the subject of the best technical wrestler was brought up on the show.
There’s a handful of people that were there that are still here. You know Kofi, Dolph, myself, Randy full time, full time, you know, superstars. Edge is obviously there as well, but he comes and goes. Honestly man I’ll tell you what, this thing with, you talk about Randy. I think no one I think is better in the ring technically than Randy Orton.
Like just his maneuvers and the things, the moves, and the in-betweens on what he does in his moves that really set him apart from everybody else. And I don’t know if people, I think everyone notices it. But for a person, as a WWE Superstar, that’s done this for such a long time. To see the level that he’s elevating and he just keeps going higher and higher, and it’s just pretty incredible”
Far be it for me to argue with The Miz – someone with almost two decades of WWE service under his belt – on this subject, so for the third time today I’ll keep my own opinions on the subject to myself. What I will say is that this will make SPOBS very own Andrew Grevas unbelievably happy as he has been trying to convince me that Randy Orton is the greatest wrestler of this generation for quite a while now, and with The Miz now fighting his corner I doubt very much if I’ll ever hear the end of him professing his love for The Viper.
