The Miz on Who He’d Like to Work a Program With, New WWE Belt, More

The Film Yap recently spoke to The Miz, who was promoting his new movie, The Marine 3. Here are some highlights from the interview.

Who he would you like to work a program with that he hasn’t yet: “I’d like to work The Rock. He was basically the person I looked at and said ‘I want to be a WWE Superstar.’ Just to watch him during the Attitude Era and to watch his matches. Not only to go up against him, but to exceed him. That’s what every WWE Superstar wants to do, whether it’s CM Punk, John Cena, you want to take it to the next level. I’ve already had that huge program with John Cena that took me to the next level, which taught me so much about the WWE, and there’s always CM Punk who is doing such a great job. He was WWE Champion for 400-plus days and is still on a roll. Those are great superstars who you want to get. You always want to be at the top.”

If he wants to continue acting: “Not only do I want to continue it, I am continuing it with “The Christmas Bounty.” I start filming that in April and it comes out at Christmas.”

The new WWE Championship belt: “I really like it. When I was WWE champion, I changed the belt too, changing the WWE logo to an “M” and stopping it from spinning. I agree with the Rock. A championship should not spin and should not be looked at as a toy. It should be looked upon with prestige and I think this new title reflects that. When people win World Series or NBA Finals or Super Bowls, I think they’ll be wearing this around their waists because it embodies what a title should look like.”

    Why would an NBA or MLB player wear a giant WWE logo belt buckle??? The World Heavyweight Championship, I understand, since it’s just big and gold. If you didn’t know what it was, you probably wouldn’t realize it was a wrestling belt. The new WWE title, however, clearly is WWE. Come on, Miz, I know you’re not the brightest, but that was a stupid comment even for you.

    The only way the new belt works for me is if the side panels are customizable according to whom has the title. It’s still a pale of a comparison to the Federation Era ‘Eagle’ Belt, but it’ll do for now.

    I agree with you, it doesnt have that prestige look, but its a lot classier than the spinner belt

  • Knightcon

    No kidding. The belt is designed for the young kids who are the main WWE money makers now days

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Except it still looks like a toy….
