– In a somewhat shock revelation, The Miz told the Appleton Post-Crescent that he’s not too happy with his promos, saying:

It’s funny; people always say, ‘You were really good at promos.’ I wasn’t always good at promos. I think ‘The Real World’ and basically doing all the motivational speeches that I’ve done to colleges before I was in the WWE really helped me get comfortable with a crowd.

“And now it’s just like second nature. As far as my promo, which I think is the best one I’ve ever cut, I hate all my promos. They all suck to be honest with you, That’s just me. I’m a perfectionist, though, and if the promo isn’t perfect and how I wanted it to go, then it literally isn’t good enough for me. … I always want them to be better no matter what.”

On working with Bret Hart, he had the following to say:

“Incredible. I mean if you think about it, I was his last singles match, so it was pretty cool to actually have Bret Hart’s last singles match. I mean, I really don’t know how to express this more. I used to watch him as a kid, putting sunglasses on kids, and I was like, man, I want to be one of those kids someday.

“And then there I am in the ring, ripping him apart (laughs) on the microphone and you know, having a wrestling match with Bret ‘The Hit Man’ Hart. It’s incredible. I’ve also wrestled Marty Jannetty! I mean come on! These are like dreams come true for me. I remember being Marty Jannetty and my friend was Shawn Michaels back when we were kids.”

  • andre lewis

    guys who are good on the mic steve austin shawn michales which is why i think ppl rate him the greatest i disagree but nontheless mvp another great talker mr kennedy unbelievable jericho heel and face there are so many who are great talkers jeff hardy and matt hardy sucked on the stick as did benoit benoit was 2 damn intense hed be damn near gnashing his teeth everytime hed talk im like wtf are you a damn animal lol but the miz is good on the microphone better then most and last but not least cena i hate 2 say it but hes good on the stick his rapper days proved it til he sold out

  • John

    Well I guess the Miz and I finally agree on something

  • erik

    imo rock is best on mic it came natrual to rock when it came to mic skills. The rock had great mic skills and great wrestling skills as well when he was face of wwe from 1998-2003


    The best Miz promo recently had to be the unveiling of his magazine cover, that was a good segment
    The fact that he feels the need to push himself to be better and is not satisfied can only be a good thing, that is why he has been voted most improved wrestler in various mags for the last 3 years- If only some other wrestlers strived for that perfection

  • jim

    some of the best in the business sucked on mic..Chris Benoit sucked on mic..rvd isn’t exactly a great mic worker but he can put on a great match.i just wish wwe would start pushing guys who can go in the ring rather talk on a mic..you can do promo after promo and have it be great but the promo will eventually lead to a match and that’s where you make your money at.

  • andre lewis

    miz on the mic is better then morison but wrestling wise morrison is better miz can talk really well but thats about it

  • CC

    The Miz is one of the best promo guys in WWE right now, but the perfectionist thing is understandable.
    If you read the Eddie Guerrero book despite people going mental over so many of his matches, he was never entirely happy with any of them because he always felt he could have done better.

    Not trying to say that Miz is anywhere near Eddie for talent, just that I can see that he has a similar mindset with always trying to better himself.

  • jim

    miz is right his promos do suck..they are all the same and genetic versions of chris jericho promo’s

  • Logan

    Never really liked him but he seems really humble so he seems pretty cool. Still don’t think he should be on the cover of SvR2011 but oh well.

  • idontknow2

    i always knew the miz was the jannetty of miz and morrison.
    this time thing are going a bit slow for hbk.

  • Kelly

    Ths Miz is one of those younger guys, you just know has talent, and if used right, could eventually be the next big thing.
