The Miz was recently a guest on The Sam Roberts Show where he was asked about CM Punk’s comments towards him in the “Best in the World” DVD. In the DVD, Punk said one of the reasons he was fed up in WWE, one of the reasons he was talking about quitting, was because The Miz was in the main event of Wrestlemania 27 and it was unacceptable to him.
Below is Miz’s response:
“My favorite part about that DVD is the entire time I’m just putting him [Punk] over, putting him over… then I watch that and I’m like… what?!? What?!?! But if you look at it this way and this is the way I look at it. Any superstar that’s not in the main event of Wrestlemania should be pissed off, should want it more than anybody. And I think that’s what CM Punk thought. I mean, I think he thought he deserved it more than anybody. And I think everyone should feel that way. Right now, I want to be in the main event of Wrestlemania 29. Do I feel like I deserve it? Absolutely. There’s no one that’s worked harder than me this entire year. That’s done more media that’s traveled all over the world, have done live events. Filmed a movie, I mean I’m non-stop all day everyday. I don’t have days off nor do I ask for days off. Do I feel like I should be in the main event of Wrestlemania? Absolutely. Am I mad that I’m not in it? Absolutely. Now am I going to sit there and, ugh, complain about it. No, I’m going to build from it. I’m going to say, you know what, Wrestlemania 29, I may not be in the main event but I can still steal the show and have everyone talking about me after Wrestlemania.”
This was just in the opening five minutes of the interview. He went on to talk about dealing with Vince McMahon, messing up on TV and getting kicked out of the locker room. You can watch the appearance in its entirety in the video below:
