Interview: Miz Speaks On Tribute To The Troops, Lawler

Matt Boone


The following is an excerpt from an exclusive interview with WWE Superstar The Miz, courtesy of WrestleZone’s parent site CraveOnline.com.

CraveOnline: How does the match you had for the troops impact your WWE storyline?

Miz: It does impact because Randy Orton is in that match and any time Randy Orton and myself get in a match together, it’s going to be chaos. You never know what’s going to happen because Randy Orton isn’t too happy with me right now because I basically beat him for the WWE championship while he was injured, while he got beat down by seven people. People are still calling me a paper champion, that I don’t deserve the championship but the fact is I’m going to prove that at this Sunday’s Pay Per View when I beat him at a tables match.

CraveOnline: What does fighting Jerry “The King” Lawler do for you as a wrestling fan and professional?

Miz: As a fan, it’s surreal because I remember watching Jerry back when I was a kid. To grow up and literally be in his first ever WWE championship match, it’s just incredible. Especially a TLC match which is very dangerous. It was my first time ever being in a TLC match so it was a new opportunity for me. My first title defense is against Jerry “The King” Lawler? Whenever I can say that, when those words come out of my mouth, it just makes me smile. The fact that I beat him was even better.
