Source: XfinityXFinity published an interview with The Miz earlier this week, who was promoting Christmas Bounty. Here are a couple of highlights:
The reaction from other WWE stars to the movie: "We're always about ribbing each other. There's a whole lot of love. I get a lot of past / present / future references because that was one of Mikey Muscles' romantic moments. And whenever a guy's giving his softer, more sensitive side they're going to make fun of it. Everyone's been pretty cool about it."
Difficulties he faced after joining WWE: "I think the biggest and hardest thing to do is get respect. When you come from a reality show, that's what you're supposed to do. Just do reality. Sit your life in front of a camera. That's it. You have no talent. But, I wanted more. When I went to WWE I was frowned upon by the WWE Universe, the locker room. Nobody wanted me to succeed. I worked hard at it, I dedicated myself, and now eight years later I can say I've had a successful run in the WWE.
"And now moving into movies it's another transition. 'He's just a WWE Superstar.' I feel like we don't get the respect we deserve. WWE is theater. We're in front of a live audience and you have one take to get it right. We have these amazing storylines. It's very much like movies except we don't get 100 takes. I think people are going to say, 'Oh, it's just a wrestler.' But, I think we're going to turn some heads."
Miz also discussed the movie, playing a Jersey guy, his favorite Christmas movies and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
