Speaking to Digital Spy, takes credit for ’s success after mentoring him two years ago on NXT.

“I taught Daniel Bryan everything he knows. So, he’s welcome. The reason he was World Heavyweight Champion was because of me,” he said. “The first thing I told Daniel Bryan when he came here… I said ‘Do you have a catchphrase?’ He came up with some lame catchphrase and so what happened? Guess what – Daniel Bryan went out and got himself a catchphrase. My advice basically gave him what he needs to be successful in the WWE.”

His dream match would be with an individual he tangled with last year in a tag team bout at last year.

“I would say . The reason I wanted to be a WWE Superstar was because of . I used to watch him in The Attitude Era. There was no-one more electrifying and no-one more must-see than . Seeing that I just always wanted to have a singles match with him,” he said.

“I had a tag match with him at a sold-out event at Madison Square Garden, which I was the main event in. I don’t mean to brag about that but I sold out Madison Square Garden in two minutes. Note to self.”

The Miz also reveals that his career highlight Raw involves The Rock.

“I’ve had so many cool moments on Monday Night Raw. I remember when The Rock first came back and every time his music played everyone would go ‘Aaaaah!’ Well since they did that every time and I was getting overlooked by everyone – and I was the WWE champion at the time – I decided to dress up as The Rock and come out with the music,” The Miz said. “I thought people would know it was me from the beginning, but they were just so amazed that The Rock was there. I think Cena was getting beaten up and all of a sudden you hear ‘If you smell…!’ and everyone goes ‘Aaaaah!’ and all of a sudden I walk out like I was The Rock. Then there was another ‘Aaaaah!’ and then I took off the sunglasses thinking people will get it now… No! An even bigger eruption happened.

The Miz also comments on whether he wants to follow The Rock’s trail in movies, whether there is any chance of the Diva Search being brought back, his favorite type of match, and why WWE continues to be successful, among other topics. The full interview is available here.

    Even though this is kayfabe, it still makes me mad he takes any blame for Danielson being champion. Suppose that means he’s a good heel.
