— The Miz says appearing at WrestleMania XXVII is a ‘dream come true’.
“This really is a dream come true,” the WWE Champion told the Toronto Sun in an interview. “As a kid, I watched Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant. It was larger than life. And now, I’m on that same stage.”
He has his sights set high.
“I always say you’re only as good as your last time on TV. If I have an off-day, that’s not good. With wrestlers like (Hogan, Triple H, Flair and Michaels), they didn’t have off-days. I just can’t remember them flubbing anything. All I remember is their iconic status.”

— Layla and Michelle McCool’s speech inducting Sunny into the WWE Hall of Fame received unfavorable reviews from a number of attendees as it was conducted in character. Raw Superstar John Morrison compared their speech to Jersey Shore star The Situation’s universally panned speech during last month’s Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump.
“Lay-Cool’s induction speech at Hall of Fame = the Situation at the Trump roast,” he wrote.
