Roddy Piper pitched a Wrestlemania idea to WWE, where he would team up with a heel against Hulk Hogan and John Cena. Piper wanted the partner to be CM Punk, but it appears that management is currently against the idea of turning him back to a heel.
"Worst call I've ever made other than refusing to job to Brock Lesnar at Atlanta. But, you know, that was my idea. Vince always likes to do something big at Wrestlemania. He didn't have anything big planned. So, me being the rocket scientist that I am, I figured okay. You're a hot babyface, and if you turn heel, you're a hot ass heel to draw money like that. Or vice versa. By and large that is true for the most part if the time is right to turn. Well clearly the time wasn't right for me to turn. It was like everybody loved John Wayne for what he stood for and so he did not ever have to be a bad guy in his movies. He never was. People didn't want to hate me. Me, because I always loved working heel more than a babyface. Thought it was going to be a chance for me to have fun, go back to working heel, doing what I loved to do and with that being said, I love working babyface too. Obviously it's where I made my money, but I like working heel. I like being a piece of trash. I like talking trash. I like cheating. That was my style of wrestling. Man, I did a lot of that as a Stone Cold babyface. So it was a bad idea, but Vince bought into it with me."

Word going around is that the WWE creative department forgot about his Christmas movie when they decided to turn Miz into a heel.
While fans are talking about the heel turn from Monday Night Raw, WWE is not expected to make a very big deal about the Miz and his character change.

Since his wedding to Maryse Ouellet is taking place later on this month, there is a very good chance that the current story line for the Miz is a way to write him off of television. Though he hasn't been penciled in for a match at Wrestlemania 30 yet, he's expected to return by then.
Miz and Maryse Ouellet are really trying to build a life together. Aside from getting married in the Bahamas in February, the couple also has been looking for a house to purchase. Since Miz has been on the road with WWE, his fiancee has been in charge of finding them a new home.
When WWE previously asked her about a return to the company, Maryse Ouellet turned them down, as she was busy working on some projects and preparing for her wedding with the Miz. The belief, though, is that the company will try to offer her a contract again after the wedding in February.

Maryse Ouellet held the WWE Divas Championship for 216 days straight, but she is about to be surpassed on that list by AJ Lee, who has now held the belt for 212 days straight. No word yet on whether or not WWE will make a big storyline out of that.
Former WWE diva Maryse recently posted a picture on Twitter of herself getting ready for a date with the Miz, her fiancee.
Maryse and Kelly Kelly met up recently at a convention in Pittsburgh, where the two former WWE divas goofed around for a picture to post on Twitter.
