Promoting WWE’s return to the Kay Yeager Coliseum in Wichita Falls, Texas on Sept. 30, The Miz addressed his starring appearance in the “The Marine: Homefront,” the third installment in “The Marine” franchise. His character will be greatly opposite to his WWE persona.

“I derived that character from a bunch of old movies … a lot of Paul Newman movies,” he tells Time Record News. “I haven’t played a good guy in seven years.”

The Miz, who grew up idolizing Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan, ventured into the world of professional wrestling after gaining fame as a cast member on MTV’s The Real World. His wrestling trainers told him he wouldn’t receive any special treatment due to his fame.

“I tried really hard,” he recalls. “… It was brutal just having people tell you you’re not going to make it. But that was the fuel … One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever gotten was from Billy Kidman, who said, ‘Stick with it.’”

Years later, The Miz is a Triple Crown Champion after having won the WWE Championship, the Intercontinental Championship, and the World Tag Team Championship. He explains how he obtained such great success.

“I tried to think, what would irritate people? Why not be the most arrogant, cocky person … so that’s where it’s derived from,” he said. “But I back it up each and every time I’m in the ring. I get why people boo me.”
