1.)  How viable is this superstar?

Miz is one of those decks that's both offensive and defensive. This makes him permanently viable in just about any format. His search ability screams Multi and or 1-2 maneuver types but his defensive ability screams "pack popular offensive cards" to rip them from your opponent's arsenal. His recovery ability screams "Have fun getting rid of me". It could combine well with a "sponge" deck design that reverses often from arsenal.

2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight?

Two, actually.

I Came To Play!
Pre-match Event
Cannot be blanked.
Your cards with "trash talk" in the title or text do not take up a Pre-match slot in your Ring.
When you would discard cards for your opponent's effects, you may instead overturn the same number of cards.
F: 0     D: 0     Permanent     Unique

Combined with his ability you basically have your recovery aspect down without taking up arsenal space. THE only issue I have is that I wish his "Trash Talking" text cards were permanent.

3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?

I've come very close to finishing his deck and now I will seeing as Yo, Kill The Beat has been neutered/changed.

4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual

As I've stated before, he's universally versatile. No restrictions means he's a swiss army knife.
 
5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?

I can't imagine anything that could really make him better other than making his "Trash Talk" cards permanent and/or allowing him to pack them in his backstage area instead and then throwing them in the ring area after the phase is over so your pre-match isn't half Trash Talk.

That's the really the only glaring "weakness" of this Superstar; with Trash Talking Interview x3, Terri, Nowinski...that's 5 of your pre from the get go. Add in his awesome 2 specifics and that leaves you with 5 to pack; some people are turned off by such things. For me, it's a welcome setup and a challenge at the same time.

If trash talk is permanent, he can't ace Nowinski.
