Sport 360 recently interviewed The Miz while he was in Abu Dhabi promoting the upcoming WWE tour in October. Here are a few highlights from the interview:

His favorite wrestlers growing up: "My favorite wrestlers growing up were The Ultimate Warrior, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, and then in the 90s it was The Rock."

What inspired his character: "There were so many Mike's [where I'm from] so my friends ended up calling me Miz (after my last name, Mizanin). 'The Miz' is Mike at 100 per cent."

His relationship with other Superstars: "It's like any other job, you're friends with some people, acquaintances with others. I'm pretty close with Dolph Ziggler, Zack Ryder, Chris Jericho, Christian, CM Punk. Sure we hang out outside of work. But we have our own things going on too, we're all from different cities."

Miz also discussed life before joining WWE, what television shows he's watching, how he plans to spend retirement, his cheat meal and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
