The Miz Says That He Feels Like The Rock Right Now

The following is an excerpt from a recent interview with WWE Superstar from The Examiner Of Beaumont:

Coming over from reality television, how were you received in the WWE locker room?

“Everyone hated me. It felt like I had to walk on eggshells and everyone was waiting for me to do something wrong. It was a different locker room back then and it wasn’t very fun for me, but I wanted to stick with it.”

Now you have some gold around your waist. Have you arrived?

“Even right now, I think I am progressing. I honestly feel like going from the WWE to the movies. He had to make an incredible transition where he’s no longer known as , but Rock the movie star. Granted, I love the reality stuff I’ve done and had a blast doing it, but I don’t want to be known as that guy, I want to be known as a WWE superstar. I am not at the level I want to be at. I don’t think I have arrived yet. When I arrive, that’s when I am on every WWE poster and every time you turn it on Raw, you just want to see what The Miz is going to do. Winning the U.S. title puts you into a category with the likes of , , Curt Henning, , , , Dusty Rhodes and Stone Cold . For me to hold that title in the ring and get to say “I’m The Miz and I’m awesome’ in front of millions, it gives you goose bumps.”

You were a mentor in the first season of NXT, now your back in the second season as a pro for Alex Riley.

“He has the talent, the charisma and is very physically fit. He looks and acts the part. I think he has the ability to do something big in the WWE. I just wish the WWE Universe would get on his bandwagon. The problem is the Universe likes good, cool guys who ask them what they think.”
