The Miz is always looking to get better.
On WWE TV, former 8-time WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz is one of the most confident superstars in the company. Over the past month or so, The Miz has underwent a slight character change as he is now hell-bent on trying to get SmackDown Live commissioner Shane McMahon to be his tag team partner. "The A-Lister" is always searching for new ways to entertain audiences and he looked at last week's edition of RAW as a call for help from the fans.
When the McMahons arrived in full force on WWE TV for the "shake up" episode, Miz stayed up until two in the morning thinking of new ways that he can entertain and he went more in detail about that while being interviewed by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated.
“I was up until two in the morning after RAW on Monday thinking about how I can better entertain the audience,” said Mizanin. “That’s the mindset I have, I always want to do my job better. It’s not only WWE, now we have Miz and Mrs. where I’m also the executive producer with my wife, and we’re trying to put on the best show possible. I want people to watch the show and say, ‘That show made me smile and took me away from all the pressure that I was going through in my life, and that made me happy.’ With all this negativity in the world, I’m trying to create positive vibes—even as The Miz, who is the ‘bad guy.’” Miz continued, “I watched RAW on Monday and listened to the call for change, and in my head, I was thinking, every time there has been a ‘Superstar Shakeup,’ I have been moved from a show,” said Mizanin. “And every time I’ve been moved from a show, that show has suffered. Every show I’ve been on has been the show to watch. I have made it must-see, so it’s my duty to tell people that because I’ll never get the credit for it. I’m the greatest underdog in the whole WWE that never gets credit for it.”
The Miz also discussed the importance of doing Tribute To The Troops, offered his thoughts on "The New" Daniel Bryan, working with Shane McMahon and more. For the full interview, click here.
