The Miz’s Favorite Wrestlers Growing Up, Relationship with Other Superstars & More

Sport 360 recently spoke to The Miz. Here are some highlights from the interview.

His favorite wrestlers growing up: “My favorite wrestlers growing up were The Ultimate Warrior, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, and then in the 90s it was The Rock.”

What inspired his character: “There were so many Mike’s [where I’m from] so my friends ended up calling me Miz (after my last name, Mizanin). ‘The Miz’ is Mike at 100 per cent.”

His relationship with other Superstars: “It’s like any other job, you’re friends with some people, acquaintances with others. I’m pretty close with Dolph Ziggler, Zack Ryder, Chris Jericho, Christian, CM Punk. Sure we hang out outside of work. But we have our own things going on too, we’re all from different cities.”

    He’s close with CM Punk? Surely that’s a joke right? Isn’t Punk always burying Miz every chance he gets?

    • Mrs. Ambrose

      I thought Punk did not like The Miz either.

      • Ya Boy J Black

        Yeah Punk didn’t like Miz at first but they came up together in OVW then ECW then Smackdown and finally Raw. Plus they are both close to Morrison so it only makes sense and they all knew about Z True Long Island Story before it was popular.

      I don’t think Punk buries him, he’s just honest. He was furious that Miz got what he thought should have been his spot at WM27. He probably tells Miz the same thing in private. Doesn’t mean they arent buddies.

    I’m surprised Steve Carrier spelled ‘Miz’ properly, given his previous articles riddled with misspellings and typos.
