The Miz recently spoke with Sporting News to promote this year’s Tribute to the Troops special that will air on the USA Network on tonight (Thursday, December 20th).
In this interview, he talked about not being featured on the card of Sunday’s (December 16th, 2018) WWE TLC pay-per-view event in San Jose, California at the SAP Center on the WWE Network and trying to convince fans who Daniel Bryan really is during their feud. Here are the highlights:
Being left off the TLC card:
“You always want to be a part of every show when you’re a WWE superstar,” Miz said. “You want to be the main event. You want to be the talk of the entire the entire show. But, sometimes, you’re left off because that’s just the nature of the beast. Sometimes you’re needed, other times you’re not. I looked at it as I need to work harder. I need to try harder but to be completely honest, I don’t know how to work harder because I don’t think anyone works as hard as me.”
“I was right all along, wasn’t I? I said exactly what I think needed to be said and nobody believes me. “He’s so beloved. He’s so endearing. He’s great and he’s a dad.” I was saying he’s all about Daniel Bryan. Daniel Bryan is selfish. Daniel Bryan looks out for Daniel Bryan. Nobody else believed me and then what happens? Now, people are like wait a second – was Miz right all along? Eh, we don’t care anymore. We just like to boo Daniel Bryan. I still don’t get any credit. Nobody’s giving me the credit of saying exactly who Daniel Bryan was and telling everyone before it even happened. It’s crazy.”
