The Miz talks about his WWE career, current run in WWE, fans



WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about various topics. The Miz stated in this interview that he doesn’t care if people buy his t-shirts because he is a heel and his job is to be the greatest villain the WWE has ever seen. However, Miz doesn’t see himself as a villain but rather himself.

I could care less if people are wearing my t-shirts. I have a job to do, and it is to be the greatest villain the WWE has ever seen. I don’t see myself as a villain, but everyone else does. People think I’m cocky, arrogant, and egotistical–but I’m confident in myself. That’s what people should be seeing me exude. People should be more confident in themselves in their own life. Some people are so negative on the Internet, as well as in the WWE Universe, that sometimes they don’t even realize how negative they are being. If they had a little more positivity in their lives, then maybe they’d cheer me.

Miz explained that early in his WWE career, people within the company thought he would only be there for three months.

Everyone always said I’d be out of here in three months. People thought I’d be fired, and I was kicked out of the locker room. But–through hard work, sacrifice, dedication, blood, sweat and tears–I’m still here fighting and scratching and clawing and craving. This new era of superstars coming in makes it very difficult to keep your spot, but I’m motivated every day. The hatred that people send to me on Twitter and Instagram really motivates me to be better, and hopefully that motivates someone else, too.

Miz also talked about Maryse being back on WWE TV and more. You can read the full interview here.
