The Miz On Ric Flair Passing Down The Figure-Four, Trying To Earn Respect

The Times-Picayune out of New Orleans has a new article online featuring quotes from The Miz to promote Sunday's WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. Below are the highlights:

Ric Flair passing down to him the figure-four leg lock:

Are you kidding me? When I was a kid, I was giving all my friends figure fours all the time. For him to pass it to me, it was incredible. I was so grateful.

Reputation in WWE and trying to get respect despot his "reality star" past:

I'm still trying to earn respect. But I've never looked at the reality thing as a negative. It was a positive. It allowed me to realize what I wanted to do with my life. Whenever a veteran says you've paid your dues and earned their respect, that's a great feeling.

    Few have worked harder in an attempt to gain respect. He’s got mine.

  • The Breaker

    He did the Figure Four on his friends all the time as a kid but somehow struggles today to lock it in correctly?
    Really, Miz? Really?

  • Just saying

    For someone who claims he use to do it all the time, he sucks at doing the figure four almost as much as “Pluto” sucks at trolling ..
    “teacH” BITCH

  • Dangerous Lee

    Whenever a WWE wrestler executes a move incorrectly, the announcers tell us it’s a “variation”. LOL

  • Gotta love The Miz, I was watching him on the Real World last week from an old VHS and it’s amazing how his dreams came true. Also, I misread the title of this as “The Miz on Flair passing” yikes
