Miz: Hulk Hogan inspired me to become WWE champ



metro.co.uk posted an interview with The Miz.

Q. Why did you want to become a wrestler?

The Miz: When I was a kid, I was inspired by those larger-than-life characters such as Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior. I did the reality show The Real World, which made me realise I could do anything I wanted to in life. I’m from Ohio and the expectation was you go to high school, then college, then come home and get a job and a family and that’s where you stay. The Real World showed me I don’t have to do that small city thing – I wanted to become a WWE Superstar and I did it.

    Yes, he’s worked so hard to become a star. I used to hate him, he was such a showoff wannadbe…but then he had that feud with JBL and cut that promo on him while walking through the backstage area…I’ve been a fan ever since. I met him at E3 in 2011 and it was an AWESOME experience.
