The Miz is arguably one of the greatest heel in this era. The amount of superstars he has elevated is unbelievable. The Miz is in WWE for over 15 years. Even though he’s criticised a lot for his wrestling skills but The Miz gives his absolute best whenever he’s in the ring.
The Miz is a grandslam champion, he has main evented WrestleMania, which is a dream for many wrestlers. The Miz’s recent feud with LA Knight was very entertaining. The Miz produced an viral segment by interviewing invisible John Cena on his Miz TV.
The Miz recently recently was on Unbreakable with Jay Glazer podcast, where he talked about losing matches in WWE.
“It wasn’t until a guy named AJ Styles came in. He was brand new to WWE, he was a huge star everywhere else. In WWE, it’s just different. When he came in, we started having a program together and it elevated him, and our job was to elevate him because he is now a huge star, he was back then, but in WWE, he was brand new. We elevated each other. Everyone in the back saw that and everyone was like, ‘we need to start stepping up on The Miz.’ My brain was like, ‘We need to start stepping up and I need to start stepping up and realizing how good I am.’
Sometimes, you go into, when you start losing and start going down a tunnel, ‘Maybe I’m not good enough.’ Maybe this isn’t for me and I need to try something else.’ Then something clicks and goes, ‘I’m good enough. I’m better than good enough. I’m number one,’ and you start really figuring out what you need to do to be a top tier talent.
“From then on, I’ve been going up and away. I can lose every match in WWE and it will not matter because I am Teflon. I’m indestructible in WWE. Now, that’s my mindset. I’m completely indestructible, I will make you believe whatever I want you to believe, when I want you to believe it and I’m good enough to have five stars matches each and every time, five star segments each and every time. You can revolve an entire show around me or give me one minute, you better believe you’re going to have moments that the fans will have for the rest of their lives. That’s where I’m at today. Was I there when I got done with the WWE Championship in 2011? Hell no. It took a long time to develop that confidence, get that confidence back.
When I was on the rise, and I had the title, I was ‘I’m the man, I’m great.’ Once you start going downhill, it’s that slippery slope. I had that glass break. It took a long time to find all the pieces and get it back together and make it now a nice shiny glass and you see right through and there are no scratches. Those scratches were all learning moments. I want to keep those scars and little pieces because they taught me what I need to do and how I need to be and how I need to conduct myself in order to be where I am today, which is a proud father, a proud husband, and doing what I love in my job and even outside, doing what I love. I feel I’m very happy, in a great spot, and enjoying life.”
