The Miz Opens Up On His Segment With Lavar Ball Not Being Planned On WWE Raw


Former WWE Champion The Miz recently appeared on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights:

On his segment with Lavar Ball on Raw this year:

“This was the first time that Lonzo Ball would be at the Staples Center as a Los Angeles Laker, so I walk in to their dressing room to go over their script, it’s kind of a baseline do you want to go over it and LaVar says ‘we are good,’ so I guess we are going to wing it out there, sounds good. No, it was not planned at all and I was like, I will just let him do his thing and people will talk about it months on and I swear to you that is one of the number one questions I get asked is about LaVar Ball. People say they can’t stand him but he knows how to create drama and I applaud him for it, you love to hate him but you will talk about him.”

On wrestling John Cena at WrestleMania in 2011 and 2017:

“So, six years ago I would say, it’s not that I wasn’t ready, but I have so much more confidence than I did then, now. You live and you learn and it’s through the learning process now I know that even when you don’t have a title you have to remain main event level and don’t allow anything to hinder that. Before I would be like I can get this done, now I am thinking how do I get people to look at me as elite and I think I have been proving myself and making memorable moments watching the show and making the Intercontinental Title the most prestigious it’s ever been. That’s been my goal since winning it, how can I make it how it used to be. When I was growing up the Ultimate Warrior was on the same level as Hulk Hogan who was the World Champion and right now, what singles title do you see every week on Raw, the Intercontinental Championship.”
