The Miz TalksWWE Superstar and star of the upcoming film "Christmas Bounty" Mike ‘The Miz’ Mizanin joined The Rack Extra hosted by Lindsay Ward and Sir Rockin. The interview can be heard here at www.wildtalkradio.com. Below are some of the highlights of the interview:

His win over Kofi Kingston at WWE  Survivor Series:

“It was a great victory; the only problem is at the end of that victory, I got slapped by Kofi. I was trying to make a good gesture in shaking his hand after the match and the guy reached out and slaps me. The thing is people have been saying that I’m the bad guy; that I wronged Kofi, but then I try and show good sportsmanship and what happens? He slaps me! But, at the end of the day, I won and that’s all that really matters.”

His opinion on his heel turn last week:

“I’ve found my niche; it’s called ‘being the Miz’ and whether people think it’s bad or good, it’s up to them. I’m not one of those people that harp on what people think, I think no matter what I’m going to entertain and people have said that there is a character switch happening and this, that and the other thing but I don’t see a character switch. I think it’s just the Miz making noise because he’s not getting the attention that he deserves and he’s not in the place he wants to be and so, he needs to switch it up and make some things happen.”

On Wrestlemania XXX coming up soon and tickets on sale now:

“Wrestlemania XXX tickets went on sale a couple weeks ago and did really, really well. I’m looking forward to WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans. I think it’s going to be a huge, huge event and I plan on being a major factor in it.”

His new movie ‘Christmas Bounty’ that airs on ABC Family tonight:

"It’s incredible. I’ve been so fortunate these days with WWE; you know, a kid coming from (MTV’s) ‘The Real World’. In reality, you’re supposed to just be a reality star and stay on that reality round, but coming into the WWE it has allowed me so many different portals to showcase my talents, I guess you could say. I mean, I got to do ‘Marine 3: Homefront’ which is out on DVD right now and now, tomorrow, November 26th on ABC Family, my new movie will premiere at 7:00 pm, ‘Christmas Bounty’ and I’m really excited for it because it’s a Christmas movie! I mean, I grew up watching Christmas movies, great Christmas movies like ‘Christmas Vacation’ and ‘A Christmas Story’ and now I get to be in one and I hope it stands the test of time and that every year people will sit down and watch this movie and enjoy it with the entire family.”
