During a recent interview with Australia's Herald Sun newspaper, WWE Superstar The Miz spoke about John Cena helping him early in his WWE career:
"John Cena made me realise what I had to do to get ahead in this business," he says. You have to make your own way to the top because no one's going to give the spot to you.
"Most of all you have to make the audience believe (in your character). No matter what they're saying about it, you always have to make them believe."
The Miz also talked about CM Punk's success in WWE, calling Punk his polar opposite:
"I enjoy the limelight, walking the red carpet, living in Hollywood and doing stuff like that," he admitted. "And Punk, well, he's not what you'd call a `corporate person'. I think the big differences in who we are as people, and as characters, would make for a great feud."
Miz also spoke about Ric Flair passing down the Figure Four to him, being the villain in Mick Foley's book and more.
