WWE Monday Night RAW is back in DC on July 24th, this Monday! You can go here and get tickets for what could be the biggest RAW of the summer.
WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz called to talk about what's happening with himself, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, working with Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, constantly reinventing his character, who could face Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, being at the ESPYs, future movies, Superstar manscaping and a ton more!
Here's our conversation:
Thank you, as always, to The Miz for a great interview. Monday is going to be another great night with RAW at the Verizon Center. Get your tickets now by clicking here!
Some highlights from our conversation:
Superstars who backstab each other: "That's the problem with everyone, like everyone's not honest around WWE. I'm the person that will tell you straight up to you face, whether you like it or not, and most of the time people don't like the things that I say. But what I say is the truth and sometimes the truth hurts and I guess people can't take it. And so if you can't take it then I guess you shouldn't be in the ring with me with a microphone, you should just get away from me. That's why I'm the Intercontinental Champion, my job is to make it them most prestigious, most relevant title in all of WWE and that's exactly what I'm doing."
Why Brock Lesnar is at the top of WWE: There's a reason they call Brock Lesnar "The Beast". This guy is to be reckoned with. He is a person who has been successful in WWE, he's been successful in UFC, anything he steps into, he's a bonafide star. So when you go up against him, you're going up against someone and it could be your last match."
Roman Reigns has IT: "Right now, he's a really big good guy or a really big bad guy, it all depends on the way you look at it. He'll walk out and get booed out of the building or he'll walk out and get cheered out of the building. But the one thing that Roman Reigns has is the "it factor" and he's a bonafide star who can go in a WWE ring."
Bringing Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel into The Miz-tourage: "It's two talented individuals, not getting a chance. I'm a person that will give you a chance, and not only that, I will provide everything that possibly can for you. I even told Heath Slater that I wanted him as a part of The Miz-tourage. He didn't want to be a part of it, he wanted to be the Intercontinental Champion. So then he goes up against me as the Intercontinental Champion and he loses, now where is he? You don't really get to see him that much. Now where is Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel? They're both on tv, each and every week, on Monday Night RAW."
The next acting project is almost ready to be announced: "I think WWE's a great training ground for that, and it's helped me with my career in doing so much and I plan on doing more. You'll just have to keep posted on the next thing that I'm doing because I have something in the works. It's going to be pretty big and a lot of fun but I haven't dotted the I's yet. I don't want to get the word out too soon but definitely keep an eye out. You'll see what I'm up to in a few months.
