The Miz was interviewed on the debut episode of the “Uncool with Alexa Bliss” podcast.
The Miz was on to talk about his life before pro wrestling, playing in the school band, his love for New Kids on the Block a horrible first date story and much more.
Miz explained what he did to improve himself from his younger days to becoming a WWE Superstar: “When I figured out what I wanted, I said, ok, I want to be a WWE Superstar. I’m 6 foot nothing. I’m 200 and nothing pounds. I am not the quintessential WWE Superstar, especially back then. Back then, it was 6 ft 7in, 300 pounds of pure solid muscle. What are the things I can get? What are the tools I can get for myself that can get me to where I need to be. I said I need a nutritionist. I didn’t have money by the way. I literally found a guy that would write me meal plans for $100 a month. I would work my butt off doing speaking engagements from The Real World while trying to live in L.A. I was also in UPW, an independent wrestling school. I was in improv classes at the Groundlings and Improv Olympics. I was in acting classes and to top it off, I would find speaking engagements where I could speak in front of a large audience so I could figure out how to motivate an audience and how to guide an audience to figure that out. I would find the tools that would get me to where I need to be.”
