After eight years away from WWE, John Morrison returned to the company in 2019. Morrison was immediately paired back up with The Miz, reuniting the duo who captured the World Tag Team Championships in 2008.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Miz discussed Morrison's return and why it made sense for them to be together again.
"John signed with WWE and it was a natural fit to bring him back and get him warmed up to everything we needed to get done and to showcase what he can do. It's been working. On Raw, we are the entire show. People see the chemistry between us. We're doing things outside of it like right now, we wrote another rap," he said.
Doing things outside of the ring has served Miz and Morrison well as the two started to gain traction in WWE when they began a web series venture entitled The Dirt Sheet.
"If you're not on television, WWE has many avenues where you can showcase your talents. Back in 2007, John Morrison and I were having great matches but nobody knew who we were as a tag team. I went to Stephanie McMahon and cut a promo on her, and said, 'John and I want to do The Dirt Sheet.' She said, 'What's The Dirt Sheet?' 'It's a show that's a cross between The Soup, Saturday Night Live, a lot of skits and variety. We're going to pick on everybody.' Then I get really heated and gave her a promo and was like, 'We're the greatest tag team of the 21st century, be jealous!' 'Be jealous, I like that.' The next day, I got a call from creative who were like, 'What's this thing you want to do? Stephanie wants you to do it.' We started writing, editing, every single week. It's before YouTube was a thing. We created it and it allowed us to show who we were. When opportunities don't present themselves, make opportunities for yourself," stated Miz.
Miz noted that Talking Smack is a great place for talent to make their own opportunity.
