WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about his WWE career. Miz is currently being managed by his wife Maryse and was asked about her being back in WWE. Miz believes that she gives him more confidence as champion.
"I’m so glad she’s back in WWE because we have so much fun together. She’s been back for how many days? [149 days] Well, that’s the same amount of days I’ve been Intercontinental champion. I wonder why? She adds another degree of confidence for me."
Miz was asked about what the most consistent challenge that he faces in WWE. According to him, it’s to stay relevant.
"It’s definitely very, very hard to stay relevant. We have an influx of talent with this new era of superstars, like Enzo and Cass and Apollo Crews, and they’re out to take your spot. You have to figure out a way to keep your spot, and make sure the audience is captivated. Enzo and Cass are really hot right now."
