Digital Spy recently conducted an interview with The Miz, covering his experience in other media, if there are plans to turn him face, and more. In the following excerpt, The Miz names his dream opponent:
If you could have a bout with anyone, who would it be?
“I would say The Rock. The reason I wanted to be a WWE Superstar was because of The Rock. I used to watch him in The Attitude Era. There was no-one more electrifying and no-one more must-see than The Rock. Seeing that I just always wanted to have a singles match with him.
“I had a tag match with him at a sold-out event at Madison Square Garden, which I was the main event in. I don’t mean to brag about that but I sold out Madison Square Garden in two minutes. Note to self.”
The Miz was also asked about his favorite moment on WWE TV:
What Raw or SummerSlam moment sticks out for you?
“I’ve had so many cool moments on Monday Night Raw. I remember when The Rock first came back and every time his music played everyone would go ‘Aaaaah!’ Well since they did that every time and I was getting overlooked by everyone – and I was the WWE champion at the time – I decided to dress up as The Rock and come out with the music.
“I thought people would know it was me from the beginning, but they were just so amazed that The Rock was there. I think Cena was getting beaten up and all of a sudden you hear ‘If you smell…!’ and everyone goes ‘Aaaaah!’ and all of a sudden I walk out like I was The Rock. Then there was another ‘Aaaaah!’ and then I took off the sunglasses thinking people will get it now… No! An even bigger eruption happened.
“Then I started walking down and people started getting it and then I beat the crap out of Cena. That was one of my highlights. I thought this is awesome… I messed with everybody.”
