The Miz recently spoke with WWE Fan France about a variety of topics. Here are the highlights:
His WWE return:
“Let’s put it this way, The Miz wanted the Intercontinental Championship and my wife allowed me to have the Intercontinental Championship. There’s no real plan to it.
Why the Intercontinental title is important to him:
“As a kid, growing up, my heroes all had the Intercontinental Championship. Ultimate Warrior, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Mr. Perfect, Ric Rude, all of them. And they were the people I looked up to and wanted to be like. So coming to WWE, the one championship I wanted was the Intercontinental Championship. Not only that, I wanted to make it as prestigious as it was when I was a kid, but I also wanted my name to be synonymous with the Intercontinental Championship. That’s exactly what I’m doing and why I have such a pride for that title.”
Good things about Cena and Bella:
“One good thing about Nikki Bella and one good thing about John Cena? They’re both gone from the WWE right now. There’s your good thing for both of them. Oh, you’re a big John Cena fan? Are you gonna cry because he’s not gonna be at the show today? What are you five?”
“I have so much more to do. Even though I’ve accomplished so much in WWE as well as having a franchise in The Marine, it’s still not enough for me. I always want more. I think that’s the drive we both (he and Maryse) have. Right? With all you’ve (Maryse) accomplished don’t you want more? It’s always what’s next. It never stops.”
What is next for him:
“What’s next? I will be the biggest WWE Superstar the WWE has ever seen, I will be the biggest movie star movies have ever seen, I will be the biggest TV star that TV has ever seen, I will be the biggest person in the world. Everyone will know my name and everyone will know exactly who I am and will be proud and respect, and I’ll be richer than everybody, and I’ll throw hundred dollar bills out to everyone as I walk into these media things. So everyone loves me.
