The Miz should be the number one contender

SmackDown Live has established a new number one contender for A.J. Style's WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Dolph Ziggler outlasted the Miz, Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper to earn the next championship match (since James Ellsworth has the flu). The Show Off will get his opportunity at the December 27 edition of SmackDown Live.

I'm a huge fan of Ziggler's, but it's time for the Miz to step back into that main event picture. Since regaining the Intercontinental Championship from Zack Ryder on the Raw after WrestleMania the Miz has been on fire. Pairing he and his wife Maryse has reignited the former reality star's career. I find the two the most entertaining aspect of SmackDown Live.

The Miz facing Styles would be an interesting dynamic as well. We don't often see heel vs. heel matches. Plus it would be a great way to showcase a champion vs. champion encounter. I realize Raw is doing that this weekend at Road Block, but to my knowledge, The Miz and A.J. have yet to go at it one on one.

A Miz-Styles match could be in the works for a bigger event like the Royal Rumble or the February pay-per-view. Ziggler winning was a pleasant surprise. It'll be interesting to see how SmackDown Live closes out 2016. I've been impressed with the show since the brand split and I'm sure we won't be disappointed with this title match in two weeks.
