Source: The Carroll County TimesThe Miz recently spoke with The Carroll County Times to promote WWE's event in Washington, DC next weekend. Here are some highlights:
Dealing with WWE's schedule: "That's what I've asked for. I've asked to be a WWE Superstar, so to just sit here and complain about, 'Oh, I never get a day off, I'm so tired.' No. I want it. Give it to me. I want to be the biggest star WWE has ever created. So in order to do that I need to do everything."
Working with The Rock and John Cena: "Anytime you are in the ring with the Rock or John Cena, you have to shine. You have to basically show what you got. And I think I did that. So whenever I got the microphone and got to be able to talk to the Rock or John Cena, I think I stood my ground and I think by the end of it, people weren't talking about the Rock or Cena, they were talking about the Miz. And I'm still talking about it to this day. The Miz retaining the WWE Championship, not once but twice, at WrestleMania 27. I mean, I made history that day. So I get to brag about that for the rest of my life and you will hear me brag about that for the rest of my life because it's something I'm proud of."
His recent character change: "It's kind of weird because I've done nothing different. I'm still the same exact cocky, arrogant, egotistical person I was before, it's just now maybe the fans are starting to understand me and cheer me because, to me, I've never been a bad guy. I've always been a good guy. I've done what I've had to do to win like everybody else in the world, you know, when you want a job or a promotion, you go after it. And that's what I'm doing, I'm going after what I want. So that's what I've been doing and now I think the fans are actually getting behind it, saying, you know what, I like this guy. I know somebody like him. I'm a guy people can get behind if they understand me and I think they're starting to understand me."
