Source: Digital SpyDigital Spy has posted an in-depth interview with WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz. Here are some highlights:
What Raw or SummerSlam moment sticks out: "I've had so many cool moments on Monday Night Raw. I remember when The Rock first came back and every time his music played everyone would go 'Aaaaah!' Well since they did that every time and I was getting overlooked by everyone - and I was the WWE champion at the time - I decided to dress up as The Rock and come out with the music.
"I thought people would know it was me from the beginning, but they were just so amazed that The Rock was there. I think Cena was getting beaten up and all of a sudden you hear 'If you smell...!' and everyone goes 'Aaaaah!' and all of a sudden I walk out like I was The Rock. Then there was another 'Aaaaah!' and then I took off the sunglasses thinking people will get it now... No! An even bigger eruption happened."
If you could have a bout with anyone, who it would be: "I would say The Rock. The reason I wanted to be a WWE Superstar was because of The Rock. I used to watch him in The Attitude Era. There was no-one more electrifying and no-one more must-see than The Rock. Seeing that I just always wanted to have a singles match with him.
"I had a tag match with him at a sold-out event at Madison Square Garden, which I was the main event in. I don't mean to brag about that but I sold out Madison Square Garden in two minutes. Note to self."
His relationship with Daniel Bryan these days: "I taught Daniel Bryan everything he knows. So, he's welcome. The reason he was World Heavyweight Champion was because of me. The first thing I told Daniel Bryan when he came here... I said 'Do you have a catchphrase?' He came up with some lame catchphrase and so what happened? Guess what - Daniel Bryan went out and got himself a catchphrase. My advice basically gave him what he needs to be successful in the WWE."
The Miz also discussed his SummerSlam victory over Rey Mysterio, if he wants to follow the Rock's footsteps, advice he would give younger wrestlers, a Diva search return and much more. You can check it out by clicking here.
