Mr. Money in the Bank, The Miz, recently was a guest on Barstool Sports’ KFC Radio podcast where he talked about not getting the respect he feels he deserves from wrestling fans.
The Miz is one of the veterans in WWE right now. He’s been working for the company for over 16 years now and has mastered his role as a heel.
Speaking on the podcast, Miz said that WWE fans don’t respect him very much and that some people don’t feel he deserves to be in the company.
“Even in WWE, sometimes I feel I don’t get the respect I feel like I want, maybe that I feel I deserve. I’ve won every title there is to win, but yet sometimes I feel like — you know, you’ll read Twitter here and there and you’ll see all the negative comments. ‘You don’t deserve to be there, we hate you, you’re the worst.’”
He also said that these kinds of comments motivate him a lot and he takes them as compliments.
“But honestly, I look at those as compliments because they motivate me, they drive me and it’s some nerd in his basement just typing away. So, I use it as fuel.”
