The confrontation between Shane McMahon and The Miz’s dad was apparently not supposed to happen and it led to a broken rib.
George Mizanin talked about his WrestleMania 35 role during the Jobbing Out podcast and he noted that he was not supposed to get in the ring but things kind of just happened when Shane McMahon called him in the ring.
“I wasn’t supposed to get in the ring [at WrestleMania],” Mizanin said.
Mizanin said McMahon told him to follow his lead. He added, “And he was calling me into the ring. And I thought, ‘What’s going on? I’m not supposed to get in the ring.’ And I got in the ring and that’s where he actually knee’d me. I broke a rib. And I guess I gave him a black eye. And I guess Michael had three staples put into his head that day.”
Mizanin did a great job and Vince McMahon approved. McMahon told Mizanin that he was his favorite part of the show.
