WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz spoke with WTMJ-TV Milwaukee and gave his thoughts on Ric Flair saying he’s the best heel in pro wrestling today.
“Ha! Is that what he said? Coming from him that’s an honor,” Miz said. “Ric Flair – in my opinion – is the greatest of all-time. I mean he is absolutely incredible, I mean, he gave me his figure-four, how can I say a bad thing about him? You know what I mean? He’s just an incredible human being and incredible in-ring performer. And still, his legend lives on, no matter if he’s in the ring or outside the ring people still do ‘The Strut,’ give the ‘Woo!’ It’s amazing.”
In regards to Flair giving Miz his figure-four submission, it happened back in 2013 when Flair became Miz’s mentor for a storyline against Cesaro. Miz has since adopted it as one of his finishing moves.
Miz is expected to defend the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 34, but his opponent(s) have yet to be decided.
