Most recently, Stephanie McMahon resigned from her position as Co-CEO of WWE, coinciding with the return of her father, Vince McMahon, to the Board of Directors.

Speaking with TMZ, The Miz reflected on his relationship with Stephanie. Miz says Stephanie McMahon greenlit the idea for "The Dirt Sheet." The Dirt Sheet was a web show hosted by Miz and his tag team partner John Morrison. The show started in 2008, and Miz credits Stephanie as one of the only executives who okayed the idea.

Furthermore, Miz says The Dirt Sheet would later be used as a blueprint for WWE's content on YouTube.

"I feel like she's always been one of the people you can go to to talk to," Miz said. "I remember when she was head of creative when I first got to WWE. I ran an idea by her. It was called The Dirt Sheet. Before YouTube was really a cool thing — It was a show that me and my tag team partner really wanted to do, and we couldn't get it going. So we went to Stephanie, I pitched her the idea, and she said, 'We're going to do it,' and literally gave us the freedom to do it, and it created one of the models of what WWE's YouTube channel is today.

"That one thing turned Into one of the biggest YouTube channels," he continued. "John Morrison and myself started The Dirt Sheet, which basically was the first show on YouTube for WWE. She was the reason behind all that happening."

Regarding the future of WWE with Vince McMahon back on the Board of Directors, The Miz says everyone remains optimistic about the future and dedicated to WWE's goal of putting smiles on faces.

"I mean, everyone is excited about the future of WWE and what it holds. Whenever you're in a company like that, you know, and we touched so many lives," said Miz. "It's the whole idea of WWE. The number one thing we always say is we just try to put smiles on people's faces. Whoever is at the head of time, we're just trying to do our job as WWE Superstars to make people happy."

The Miz is not the only person to talk about Vince McMahon's return to the Board of Directors, Karrion Kross was recently quoted as saying nobody he's spoken to in WWE is currently worried about their job.
