Daniel Bryan shocked the world on Tuesday night when he turned heel and defeated AJ Styles to capture the WWE Championship. Bryan will now face Universal Champion Brock Lesnar this Sunday in a traditional Champion vs. Champion match at Survivor Series.
There’s one top Superstar who may benefit the most with Daniel’s shocking heel turn – and that’s The Miz.
Bryan and The Miz have a long history between them and their rivalry once again kicked off when the Leader of YES Movement was appointed as the General Manager of SmackDown Live. A heel must-see Superstar and a babyface GM would make the most out of SmackDown Live, however, it was about time that Bryan returned to in-ring action this year at WrestleMania 34 and both men took their rivalry to the ring.
According to recent speculations, The Miz could turn face in the coming weeks. If WWE plans to have AJ win the Royal Rumble and switch to RAW by challenging Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35, then there’s no better Superstar than the A-Lister to be the top babyface on the blue brand and go head to head with heel Daniel Bryan next year at the Show of Immortals.
The “Marine” star took to social media to unload on Bryan’s heel turn:

I told you how Daniel Bryan really was but you chose to ignore me. I told who the real Daniel Bryan was but you chose to boo me. And now, after manipulating his way into title match after title match after title match, the true colors of Daniel Bryan are finally on display for the world to see. Was I right all along? ??YES!??
The Miz has also been rumored to become WWE Champion in 2019 and that makes Bryan’s heel turn seem legitimate.
The A-Lister also claimed himself to be the MVP of WWE in 2017 and was rated as the Most Improved Wrestler of the Year (2016) by PWI. The Hollywood star also returned to RAW 25 as a sort of babyface for one night only to beat Roman Reigns for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
Even as a heel, The Miz is one of the hottest Superstars in his own right and receives huge pops while mocking Bryan’s moves in his matches. Capable of delivering must-see promos with a real-life touch, it’s about time that the 8-time Intercontinental Champion turns face and gets his hands on a top-tier championship.
