Sport 360 recently spoke to The Miz. Here are some 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.”


  • Geoff

    “I’m pretty close with CM Punk” – No. The guy hates your guts.

    • Tyler Cross

      I’m pretty sure he would know better than you. Also if you’re thinking about Punk’s documentary, he never said he didn’t like him. He said he was a better heel. Even if hew didn’t like him then, is it impossible for his feelings to change???
