WWE Superstar The Miz recently did an interview with Sky Sports to promote last night’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV), where he defeated Daniel Bryan in a one-on-one contest. Here are some of the highlights:
Wanting to go after the WWE Title and bring the prestige back to the title: “I deserve to be in the WWE Championship match,” Miz said. “So I said, ‘Listen, if I defeat Daniel Bryan, I deserve to be in that match.’ So, I’m hoping once I beat Daniel, I can face AJ, take that title, and bring the relevancy and prestige back to that title like I did with the Intercontinental [Championship].”
If he thinks the WWE Title has lost some of its luster over the years: “Don’t you? Name a time it’s been in the main event,” Miz wondered. “Why is it not in the main event? If the Universal Championship is on the card, why is that title not in the main event? Back when I was first starting in WWE there was not a PPV that didn’t have the WWE Championship or World Championship in the top spot.”
Believing AJ Styles “coasts” as champion: “One-hundred percent, I will make sure that everyone knows that this title belongs in the [main event],” Miz insisted. “I’ll make noise. I know how to make noise, I really do, I’m really good at it. And sometimes I feel like AJ [Styles] just coasts. I mean, he’s great in the ring, one of the best performers that WWE has ever had. He’s the longest reigning WWE Champion, but I feel like I can elevate that title more than he can.”
