The current WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz, was recently a part of a media conference via the “Hard Hidz Wrestling Podcast”. During the conference, The Miz was asked to provide his thoughts on the Mike & Maria Kanellis “power of love” gimmick, what he thinks of Roman Reigns’s mixed reactions from fans & more.
Here are the highlights:
Thoughts On Mike & Maria Kanellis:
“Oh, maybe [they will get a chance to face Mike and Maria Kanellis]. They’re on SmackDown Live now and I mean, I think their, I don’t want to say ‘gimmick’, their whole thing is the power of love and I find it interesting. I think it’s going to generate a lot of heat and I think people are not going to like them and I think it’s going to be something really, really good for SmackDown Live.”
“Roman gets the biggest half and half now and I’ve seen it from Cena too. When he was wrestling Kurt Angle a long time ago, it’s kind of like when I first started up on WWE, it was 2006, I remember for the first time I ever heard, like, ‘let’s go Cena’/’Cena sucks’ and I was like, ‘wow, man and this is like the face of the franchise and people don’t like him’. You’d hear the little kids go, ‘let’s go Cena’ and the men go, ‘Cena sucks’. It was incredible. Now, I think Roman has that kind of effect on the people where you either really love him or really hate him.”
The Miz On If He Will Ever Turn Face:
“It all depends on what the crowd does. If the crowd starts cheering, guess what: good, I’ll go into it. I mean, at WrestleMania, they were cheering me. Half the crowd’s cheering me and I’m like, ‘wait, are you chanting, ‘The Miz’?’ I don’t think I ever heard that before in my entire career in WWE.”
