The Miz Reveals Advice Billy Kidman Gave Him, Discusses The Marine: Homefront, Catchphrase

The Los Angeles Times has a new Q&A online with The Miz to promote Sunday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view. Below is an excerpt:

Q: You have mentioned before about your difficulties breaking in. What advice would you give a young wrestler trying to break into the business today?

Miz: I was told by a young Billy Kidman some great advice that I still believe. You have to stick with it. Too many times people have excuses on why they give up. But if you stick with it and work hard enough, you can make it.

Q: You left for a couple of months to make a movie. What’s it about and when can we see it?

Miz: “The Marine: Homefront” will debut in spring of 2013. I think it will be an absolute incredible movie and I can’t wait for its release. It is about a Marine who just got home from a tour and one of his sisters gets kidnapped by terrorists. He then has to go in and save them. I think I play the best Marine of all of them but, of course, that’s just my opinion.

Q: How did you come up with “I’m the Miz and I’m awesome” catchphrase?

Miz: The catchphrase just came to me. It’s like when people ask me stupid questions and I look at them and go, “Really? Really?” I don’t really know how I came up with it. It was the simplest thing at the time, who am I? I’m the Miz. What am I? I’m awesome. You will see first hand at SummerSlam on August 19!

    I personally do not like the hirse faced moron known as the MIZ but i will give it to him when he first got to WWE he was treated BADLY by the locker room and seen as someone who had not paid their dues and was there just because of his reality show past but over the years he has worked his ass off kept his mouth shut for the most part and just asked questions and absorbed as much info as he could from people so I will give that to him he has worked VERY hard to get his spot

    The Miz is an impressive person. He was just some guy on a reality show who acted like a pro-wrestler and talked about how bad he wanted to be a pro-wrestler. In not so many years he turned himself from basically a fan / wanna-be into the WWE Champion headlining Wrestlemania and defeating the top guy in the company. He’s a very hard worker and deserves everything he has coming to him. Which will be very good things if he can keep doing what he’s doing and continue to avoid significant injury
