The Miz was on In This Corner podcast via CBS Sports, where he discussed a handful of topics from his feud with John Cena, how he has changed since becoming a father, and if he’s happy for Daniel Bryan’s return to the ring.

Defeating John Cena at WrestleMania 27:
I’ve pinned John Cena at WrestleMania, and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my WWE career. To go into WrestleMania as WWE Champion and walk out of WrestleMania as WWE Champion as the bad guy that people boo, that doesn’t really ever happen. Ever. And it did with me because I make people believe.
If fatherhood will affect his in-ring style:
One thing is for sure, it has opened up a new part of my heart that I didn’t know I had. So, is there a softer side to the Miz? Maybe.
Annoying fans with pictures of his daughter:
I’ve annoyed friends. Anyone on footage. I’ve annoyed interviewers, and anyone and everyone. I’m just so proud. It’s one of those…it’s exactly what everyone has told me about having a child. It’s indescribable. I can’t describe how proud I am of this little girl, and all she does is eat, sleep and go to the bathroom.
If he’s happy about Daniel Bryan returning to the ring:
Am I happy? No. Good for him that he’s back. Congratulations. Bravo. The thing is he was the one that said ‘fight for your dreams?’ He didn’t fight for his reams when he walked away like a coward on Talking Smack now did he? That’s real.
Fight for your dreams. His playbook goes something like this: go out there, get sympathy, talk about your wife, cry a little and get your ass kicked.
