Jim Ross recalled the arrival of The Miz in WWE. During the newest episode of Grilling JR Podcast, he opened up on the incident between Chris Benoit and The Miz.
Jim Ross explains the incident:
JR revealed that Chris Benoit kicked The Miz out of the the locker room and threw his bag.
“Chris Benoit policed his territory. Benoit represented the business as best he knew at the time, but he didn’t take it to the next step and put the crossface on The Miz or beat the sh** out of him. If he beat the sh** out of him, none of the talents would’ve said anything, but nobody deserves to be physically assaulted at the workplace. The verbal thrashing? Have at it. Exile? Have at it. Physicality? Ain’t going to happen.”
JR reflects on WM 27 match and heel persona of The Miz:
“Miz worked his ass off to become that heel.He was never going to be a killer heel, he was never going to be a monster heel, but he can be an amazing chicken s**t heel. It’s kind of the same characterization to MJF in AEW, he’s going to be a chicken s–t heel for the rest of his career. He’s never going to be 6’4”, he’s never going to look like some of these big monsters. Miz has done that tenfold.”
The Miz is former eight time WWE Intercontinental Champion and 1 time WWE Champion. He has currently reunited with his former tag-team partner, John Morrison.
