The Miz recently spoke with WOIO-TV CBS-19 Cleveland Entertainment Reporter Chris Van Vliet. Here are some highlights.
Which Superstar they would love to see return in a WrestleMania dream match: “I’d want to see Ultimate Warrior come back and give like three clotheslines and a splash. And literally run around shaking the ropes and run back. That’s all I want. All I want is to hear the music, run down, three clotheslines and a splash. 1,2,3. Run, boom, done. See ya, bye and I’m the happiest person in the world. I’ve never met The Ultimate Warrior, he’s been my favorite since I was a little kid, so I’m excited to hopefully get to meet him at the Hall of Fame.”
What it means now that the titles are unified: “It makes it a lot harder. It makes it a bigger target for that champion and it makes it even more important for this Royal Rumble coming up to win it because then you go on to main event WrestleMania and go for that WWE World Heavyweight Championship. No longer do you get a choice when you’re a Money In The Bank winner, because you’re going for that title.”
Working with Ric Flair: “Everyone wanted that spot and I was the lucky one that got chosen. It’s an absolute honor. Growing up watching Ric Flair with the way he dressed, the way he walks, the way he talks, I kind of embodied that character. It’s been working out really well because I’ve been winning with it. So thank you Ric Flair, I’m finally winning.”
