Prior to being "fired," the Miz spoke with Chris Van Vliet, an entertainment reporter for WOIO-TV, the CBS affiliate in Cleveland.

The Miz talked about how winning the WWE Championship almost made him cry and that he celebrated by going to Denny's and eating a BBQ Chicken Sandwich because it was the only restaurant he could find that was open.

He credits John Cena for helping take his skills to main event status, saying, "working with Cena made me realize I have a lot more work to do." He also says the step up in his skills can be attributed to switching his ring attire from shorts to briefs.

Miz also commented on being number one on the PWI 500 list, saying it was a huge honor but found it funny since Pro Wrestling Illustrated used to hate him calling him "annoying" and saying he had "turn the channel type of heat."

Miz also took over Vliet's entertainment segment on 19 Action News earlier today and did the entire segment himself, you can check that out below:
