Heath Miller spoke with Tim Battle for WrestlingNews.co’s Battleground podcast to discuss a wide range of topics.
During the interview, he talked about Vince McMahon turning down his ideas while he was with the company. Here is what he had to say:
“it’s just one of those things in that spot over there. You get these roles you gotta play and then you play them very well even if you don’t want to play them. Trust me I did a lot of them. It was one of those things to where like you play and you play them well and you give your ideas to make it better. Vince sometimes will do it and when they’ll do it and when it gets over and it’s not their idea then they put you on ice. I don’t know how many times in my career to where I’ll get something that’s horrible and no one wants to do but I’ll stretch it for a mile. John Cena would tell me that all the time. He’s like ‘man you did some of the worst things but you stretch it so far to where people will remember it.’ Like 3MB, we have a redneck an Indian and a Scotsman walking in a bar, like a joke. But we went 2 years with it so it’s like one of things and people honestly still remember it because we’re entertaining and we have fun trying to do it because we all were buddies. Even other gimmicks and stuff that I did, it’s just one of those things where you can try and try and try and try but if they don’t want you to keep going, it’s gonna stop. It doesn’t matter how good it is or how good you are or what it is. If they don’t want it to keep going then it’s to the next one. Impact, what I love is my ass gets to be myself. I get to go out there to do the things I would like to do. Yes, there’s agents and you give your ideas but the agents are cool as hell…It’s just one of those things that honestly, Impact is a breath of fresh air. Don’t be surprised if you see more surprises because there might be some more people heading on over. Don’t be surprised if you see surprises.”
