WWE Tough Talk - Early feuds (2006–2007) - Netflix
From March 7 onwards, a video on WWE's website and vignettes on SmackDown heralded The Miz debuting on SmackDown. When Mizanin actually attempted to make his debut on the April 21 episode of SmackDown, he was in storyline banned from entering the arena by network executive Palmer Cannon who told him that he had been “cancelled” before having security escort him from the premises. The Miz debuted as SmackDown's host on June 2, hyping up the crowd at the top of the show. Other duties included backstage interviews and hosting a bikini contest. The hosting duties seemed sporadic at best, with some weeks having little to no involvement of Miz at all. Starting in July, Miz, along with Ashley Massaro, hosted the annual Diva Search competition on both Raw and SmackDown. After the end of the Diva Search competition, The Miz returned exclusively to SmackDown as a villain, starting his in-ring competition with win over Tatanka in the September 2006 episode of SmackDown. After this win he, along with commentator Michael Cole, began to note whenever possible that he was “undefeated”, though he only wrestled five matches over the next two months, defeating such wrestlers as Matt Hardy, Funaki and Scotty 2 Hotty. At the same time he began a feud with Diva Search winner Layla El, who spurned his advances on more than one occasion, leading to Miz helping Kristal defeat her in various competitions. However, Miz and Kristal soon found themselves being stalked by The Boogeyman. This began a feud in which the Boogeyman ended The Miz's winning streak at December's Armageddon event. Following a brief absence from television, The Miz returned to SmackDown to host an interview segment named Miz TV. After the unsuccessful segment, The Miz returned to in-ring competition with a more intense style and began to pick up wins once again. On the June 11, 2007 episode of Raw, Mizanin faced off against Snitsky in a match to determine a draft pick for SmackDown. Snitsky easily defeated The Miz to give ECW the draft pick, but after constantly assaulting The Miz after the match, the referee reversed the decision and awarded the match to Miz, thus allowing SmackDown a draft pick. SmackDown then picked Chris Masters. Miz was drafted from SmackDown to ECW on June 17 as part of the 2007 supplemental draft. He was absent from the first few weeks of ECW, though he was the subject of backstage mentions between matches and had several short Miz TV Crashes ECW video segments. He made his debut on the July 10 episode of ECW in a match against Nunzio, which he won. Following this match, Extreme Exposé began expressing admiration in him and gave him a lap-dance, starting a new gimmick for him of a self-proclaimed “chick magnet”. Extreme Exposé then became managers for The Miz. He then began a feud with Balls Mahoney after Kelly Kelly began to fall in love with Mahoney on screen. On the October 2 episode of ECW, it was revealed that Miz owned the contracts of Kelly Kelly, Layla and Brooke Adams; and he used this excuse to stop Kelly from going out with Mahoney. He was voted at Cyber Sunday to face CM Punk for the ECW Championship, but lost the match.
