During a recent interview with Newsweek, WWE Superstar The Miz talked about the state of his current career.
Despite playing a character that craved the spotlight for many years now, according to the Miz he doesn’t really want to be the center of attention if it doesn’t mean he’s not in a good storyline.
“I have a problem with being the center of attention. I don’t want to just be thrown in a cold match that no one cares about,” the Miz told Newsweek.
“What we are as WWE superstars are storytellers. If I’m not involved in a story that people are invested in, that people want to see, then no. You rather let people who are in-story to get the time that they need to tell that story. To be the people to steal the show,” he elaborated.
He also told Newsweek that he is legitimately happy with his career in the WWE for maybe the first time.
“For the first time in my career, I can sit down and legitimately say I’m happy. I’m doing very well with WWE. I feel like the audience has finally taken to me and cheering me and respecting me as a WWE superstar. It took a long time to do that,” said the Miz.
He also spoke about the possibility of feuding with another veteran WWE superstar, Dolph Ziggler who he clashed with a little on the last episode of Raw. Ziggler has currently been going around criticizing people who he believes got opportunities that he should have.
“Dolph and I are friends. I don’t know what’s gotten into him or what’s going on. Sometimes I feel that Dolph is very bitter,” said the Miz.
“We both wanted to be better and bigger. But I started realizing that negativity isn’t where I want to be. So him coming out there and try and get a rise out of me kinda pissed me off,” he said regarding his response to Ziggler’s new attitude.
