– In a somewhat shock revelation, The Miz told the Appleton Post-Crescent that he’s not too happy with his promos, saying:
“It’s funny; people always say, ‘You were really good at promos.’ I wasn’t always good at promos. I think ‘The Real World’ and basically doing all the motivational speeches that I’ve done to colleges before I was in the WWE really helped me get comfortable with a crowd.
“And now it’s just like second nature. As far as my promo, which I think is the best one I’ve ever cut, I hate all my promos. They all suck to be honest with you, That’s just me. I’m a perfectionist, though, and if the promo isn’t perfect and how I wanted it to go, then it literally isn’t good enough for me. … I always want them to be better no matter what.”
On working with Bret Hart, he had the following to say:
“Incredible. I mean if you think about it, I was his last singles match, so it was pretty cool to actually have Bret Hart’s last singles match. I mean, I really don’t know how to express this more. I used to watch him as a kid, putting sunglasses on kids, and I was like, man, I want to be one of those kids someday.
“And then there I am in the ring, ripping him apart (laughs) on the microphone and you know, having a wrestling match
with Bret ‘The Hit Man’ Hart. It’s incredible. I’ve also wrestled Marty Jannetty! I mean come on! These are like dreams come true for me. I remember being Marty Jannetty and my friend was Shawn Michaels back when we were kids.”
