John Morrison & The Miz might be the most self-centered tag team in sports-entertainment history. Respectively known as "The Shaman of Sexy" and "The Chick Magnet", Miz & Morrison's larger than life egos draw instant ire from audiences. Unfortunately for the fans who love to hate them, the arrogant tandem is as good as they are narcissistic.

In November 2007, the egotistical Superstars took full advantage of the Smackdown!/ECW working agreement, which allowed talent to cross from brand to brand, when they jumped to the Friday night show to upend Matt Hardy & Montel Vontavius Porter for the WWE Tag Team Championship. After the win, Miz & Morrison successfully defended the titles against both rosters of Superstars, including Jesse & Festus, CM Punk & Kane and the father and son duo of Finlay & Hornswoggle.

While incredibly successful in the ring, Miz & Morrison are even more known for their popular WWE.com webcast, The Dirt Sheet. Airing weekly, the duo used the show to poke fun at their competition.

History

Formation

On the November 16, 2007 edition of SmackDown, ECW superstars and then-rivals John Morrison and The Miz were paired to face Matt Hardy and Montel Vontavious Porter in a match for the WWE Tag Team Championship and subsequently won after Porter turned on Hardy. After winning the title, Morrison and Miz brought the title to the ECW brand. When they won the WWE Tag Team Championship, the two were no longer portrayed as enemies, but rather as trusting friends. They would defend the title on numerous occasions on both ECW and SmackDown as well as multiple pay-per-views against the likes of Shannon Moore and Jimmy Wang Yang and Tommy Dreamer and Colin Delaney. The team's gimmick was further expanded upon when they were given a show on WWE.com called The Dirt Sheet, which later became the most popular show on the website. On June 23, at the 2008 WWE Draft, the duo defeated the Hardys which earned ECW its only draft pick, which was Matt Hardy. On July 20, 2008, at The Great American Bash the team lost the title to Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder; however, neither Miz nor Morrison were pinned during the match.

After losing the tag titles, Morrison and Miz entered a feud with ECW newcomers Evan Bourne and Ricky Ortiz, who they had previously mocked (and continued to do so) on the Dirt Sheet, as well as an Internet-centered feud with RAW's Cryme Tyme based on which WWE.com online show was the best (between the Dirt Sheet and Cryme Tyme's "Word Up"). Morrison & Miz won a match between the two teams at Cyber Sunday, which was voted for by fans. Recently Jillian Hall has also aligned herself with the tag team. Throughout October the team has mocked D-Generation X. On the October 28th edition of ECW their feud with DX continued mocking them after a live Dirt Sheet attacking two impostors playing Shawn Michaels and Triple H. They proceeded to lose a match against DX on the 800th Episode Celebration of Raw. During the match they mocked DX's signature moves having Morrison perform Sweet Chin Music on Triple H, The Miz went for the Pedigree on Triple H but failed to perform it.
