The following is an excerpt from an interview with The Miz from AOL Fanhouse:
On how wrestling has changed over the years:
Right now we have guest hosts. Jerry Springer as guest host on Monday Night Raw. That I would have never told you would be happening ten years ago. But right now we’re having guest hosts. It’s fun. The ratings are up 12% since guest hosts have come on. And since, you know, 1980s, 90s, WWE has been an evolution I guess you could say. It keeps growing and growing and growing. And it’s incredible. So it’s ever-changing. The superstars are changing. And by next year I plan on being the main event, the talk of the town and having more titles than just the United States title and the Unified Tag tem titles. So is WWE different from than what it was ten years ago, five years ago, one year ago? Absolutely.
On the craziest injuries he has gotten in wrestling so far:
My first three months in the wrestling – that’s why I always tell kids not to try this at home is my first three months of wrestling on the independent league I broke my ankle. I took – I basically like landed on my ankle wrong, broke it. I’ve had bruised ribs. I get concussions quite a bit. Luckily we have the greatest doctors in the world that are able to tell you if you can go next week or if you can’t. But there’s injuries all the time but there’s doctors on-call. I mean, if you watched ECW last night you saw anytime we bleed now a doctor is right out there to make sure that we stop bleeding because we are a PG – we are kid-friendly.
Who are the up-and-coming superstars in the WWE that fans should watch out for:
Me and The Big Show are – is just two that ring a bell just because right now I think I’m the biggest up and comer right now. I mean Sheamus is doing incredible because he is WWE Champion. And he’s done it quicker than I’ve ever even seen anyone do it. Evan Bourne is I feel like the new Rey Mysterio. He’s an incredible mind in and outside the ring. You know, I mean I can’t say enough about all the new up and coming WWE superstars. I mean, it’s not all about John Cena, the Generation X, and the Undertaker anymore, it’s all about the new up and comers because we are going to take over WWE. And we are doing that right now so.
