The Miz Reflects On No One Liking Him In Early WWE Career

The Miz spoke to Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard section about various topics. Here are the highlights.

His career:
“When I first got to WWE, people thought I was going to be fired within three months. No one liked me, no one wanted me there, whether it was the fans or the people backstage. I had to fight and fight and fight to earn my spot. Through hard work and dedication, I proved everyone wrong. And I’m the bad guy in WWE, which I find hilarious. This show is really a ‘feel good’ kind of story. I started off on the The Real World, and no one thought I would amount to anything. Then, all of a sudden, coming into this and pursuing my dream of becoming a WWE superstar, and also doing movies, hosting, and now my own show with my wife.”

Miz & Mrs.:
“This was an opportunity to document what it’s like to be first-time parents in the entertainment industry. We actually get to see our baby getting born on television, and we’ll have this for the rest of our lives. It’s really cool to see people enjoying the show. We love the show, but to hear such great feedback, I’ve never had so many positive reviews.”
