Source: ComcastComcast has an in-depth interview with The Miz, who was promoting this Sunday's Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Here are just a few highlights:
His theme: "I will say I have one of the best entrance themes in all of WWE. I won't say the best of all time because my favorite is The Brood. They didn't even have words, and they didn't need words. They had the best entrance as well coming up through the fire was just awesome."
Winning The Royal Rumble: "When I win the Royal Rumble I will have the choice between the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship. So, you look at it and you go, CM Punk vs. the Rock. CM Punk has held the title for 400-something days. He's a proven champion and he'll do whatever it takes to win that title at all costs. Then you have the Rock coming back, hasn't been in the ring in almost a year now. CM Punk has been defending the championship for the past year. He's crisp, he's in his prime. The Rock might have a little ring rust. But, I want the Rock to win. The Rock is the reason I wanted to become a WWE Superstar. I would like to face the Rock in the main event of Wrestlemania, beat him, then solidify myself as the most must-see WWE Superstar of all time."
If Rock had any ring rust when they wrestled at the 2011 Survivor Series: "Not that day. You heard the sold-out Madison Square Garden chanting at him, 'You've still got it.' He definitely still had it then, but remember, that was a year and a half ago. A lot of things happen in a year and a half. Obviously, he's training and getting ready, but it'll be interesting to see what happens."
Having a Woo-Off with Ric Flair: "(Laughs) You know, you really can't beat having a 'Woo' off with the legend Ric Flair. Not only that, but to have Ric Flair allow me to apply the figure four, it's almost like… I hate to say a passing of a torch, but I felt so honored. To sit there and talk to Ric Flair on Miz TV and not only strut like Ric and 'Woo' like Ric, but to have the honor of putting on the figure four and now using the figure four is just an incredible feat."
Much more is contained in the interview, including Miz discussing his upcoming movie, having problems using the figure-four, being a babyface, The Real World and his match with Antonio Cesaro this Sunday on the pre-show. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
