ESPN recently interviewed The Miz. Here are a few highlights from the interview.
If he’s received advice from The Rock about acting in movies: “I did, actually. I texted The Rock, because let’s face it, The Rock is the biggest action hero right now in movies, so I was like, listen, Rock, what’s your best advice, and he told me to just be natural. He said that too many times guys try and be this big guy, but it ends up looking robotic. He told me to act natural, have fun, and enjoy the scenes, enjoy yourself. It sounds so simple, but when you get in there and there are all these cameras and you have different takes and different feelings, being natural is great advice, and it actually helped out a lot.”
If The Rock gets a bad rap for working part-time and being WWE Champion: “Listen, anytime The Rock wants to come back to WWE, I welcome him back with open arms. The Rock is the reason I wanted to become a WWE superstar, and not only that, but he brings his movie crowd to the WWE, and if the ratings are going up and you’re watching Raw, guess what, people are seeing The Miz, and more people are going to stay and watch The Miz. So if The Rock wants to come back, I open my arms to it because he always brings a whole new set of WWE fans.”
If he will be facing Antonio Cesaro at WrestleMania: “That’s what I’m hoping for, but with WWE, you never know what’s going to happen. It’s live, it’s in your face. You never know what is going to happen. We love shock value.”
