The Carroll County Times has a new article online featuring quotes from The Miz to promote next Saturday's WWE TV tapings from the Verizon Center in Washington, DC. Below are the highlights:

Hectic schedule as a WWE star:

"That’s what I’ve asked for," The Miz said in a phone interview while driving to Philadelphia. "I’ve asked to be a WWE Superstar, so to just sit here and complain about, ‘Oh, I never get a day off, I’m so tired.’ No. I want it. Give it to me. I want to be the biggest star WWE has ever created. So in order to do that I need to do everything."

Main eventing Wrestlemania:

"Anytime you are in the ring with the Rock or John Cena, you have to shine. You have to basically show what you got. And I think I did that," he said. "So whenever I got the microphone and got to be able to talk to the Rock or John Cena, I think I stood my ground and I think by the end of it, people weren’t talking about the Rock or Cena, they were talking about the Miz. And I’m still talking about it to this day. The Miz retaining the WWE Championship, not once but twice, at WrestleMania 27. I mean, I made history that day. So I get to brag about that for the rest of my life and you will hear me brag about that for the rest of my life because it’s something I’m proud of."

Turning babyface:

"It’s kind of weird because I’ve done nothing different. I’m still the same exact cocky, arrogant, egotistical person I was before, it’s just now maybe the fans are starting to understand me and cheer me because, to me, I’ve never been a bad guy. I’ve always been a good guy," he said. "I’ve done what I’ve had to do to win like everybody else in the world, you know, when you want a job or a promotion, you go after it. And that’s what I’m doing, I’m going after what I want. So that’s what I’ve been doing and now I think the fans are actually getting behind it, saying, you know what, I like this guy. I know somebody like him. I’m a guy people can get behind if they understand me and I think they’re starting to understand me."

    The miz is insane. He actually sees himself on par with the Rock and actually believes he's accomplished something memorable in this business. Probably the most dellusional wrestler out there.

      Dude, if you didn't have a wrestling background and grew up solely as a fan, wouldn't you feel proud to have won in the main event of WM 27? The Miz has done EVERYTHING asked of him. He's made some mistakes, but he has consistently learned from them to become a credible superstar. His microphone skills are only second to the top mic guys (Austin, Rock, Piper, etc.). Give the guy his due credit.

    never been a big fan of his BUT I will giove him props because when he first got into the WWE he was HATED beyond belief by the locker room and was HAZED often by Undertaker and JBL especially so he had to work basically twice as hard to earn the respect of guys like JBL and Taker and he has busted his ass to get where he is; he went from "reality tv joke" to a main event superstar
