Former Intercontinental Champion The Miz recently had an interview with the Mirror where he talked about being a first-time parent, his reality show Miz and Mrs and more.
While talking about his reality show roots, the former Champion said that he still doesn’t get the respect he deserves because he was on the reality show:
“I will never get the respect I deserve, because I was on a reality show. Whenever you’re on a reality show, you’re the scum of the earth. You have no talent, you’re a nothing and you deserve nothing. That’s the way I’ve been brought up and how I feel people look at reality [television]. Do I look at it that way? Absolutely not; I thank my lucky stars I was on a show like The Real World on MTV and I thank them for putting me on that show because it gave me the ability to say ‘I can do anything I want with my life.'”
Apart from this the Miz also talked about what he would do if fans do start to respect him and he said that he will find a new drive and new fire if it happens.
As noted before, The Miz will be holding a Miz TV segment at the upcoming episode of SmackDown Live with the recently returned Rey Mysterio being his guest.
