The Miz was interviewed this week on Renee Paquette’s “Oral Sessions” podcast.
Miz talked about his relationship with Vince McMahon, blacking out on Talking Smack, keeping his dad away from Vince, what it’s like being on a reality show again, and more.
Miz also revealed that he had no idea that he would be winning the WWE Championship until a few hours before the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view broadcast. This lines up with reports stating that talent is being kept in the dark on creative plans. This may also indicate that it was a late decision to put the title on him.
Miz said the following on winning the WWE Championship:
“I had no idea. I walked in there (in the afternoon) and nobody was talking to me, like, all the creative, I’m like, ‘Is anyone going to tell me what the hell is going on?’ Then, I went in and figured out what was going on, and I was like, ok, this is it. Honestly, you never believe it’s going to happen. You don’t. Until you hear one, two, three, you don’t believe it’s going to happen.
If you’ve been watching WWE at all, Drew and Roman are on fire. They are incredibly hard to beat. They have grabbed the brass ring and basically said, we are untouchable. You are not going to be able to touch us. You’re not going to be able to get this title off of us. It’s very difficult. Being Mr. Money in the Bank, the fear is always, you’re going to cash in and lose.
Honestly, it was different this time with the internet. Last time I cashed in, it was 100% hate. People could not stand me. This time, it was even. There was 50% that said ‘We can’t stand him. He’s won 3 matches in a year. He doesn’t deserve it. This is the weakest champion ever. Blah, blah, blah.’ Then the other half said, ‘He deserves it. We’re proud of him.’

Working with @mikethemiz can be….interesting….to say the least. So getting to pick his brain for an hour was really fun for me! Give us a listen, hear about his hustle, his story, the only adult man whose face I got paid to slap! 😂❤️ https://t.co/0L2LXvrcYe
