The Miz: “Haters love me”



ESPN.com posted an interview with The Miz to promote the release of The Marine 3. Here is an excerpt:

Q. You seem to attract more haters than just about anybody on the WWE roster. Why is that?

Miz: Haters love me. [laughs] That’s why I’ve got the T-shirt. It’s a little bit of everything. I think when you come from a reality show, nobody really respects you from the movie industry or from the WWE industry. Our WWE fans are very critical. It’s like a fraternity, and if you’re not a part of that fraternity, guess what, you’re hated. And for a very, very long time, I had to earn the respect of all the WWE Universe, and I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity to do that. I think, finally, after seven years of working hard and dedicating myself, I’ve finally turned the fans, and you’ll actually hear them cheering nowadays. That’s what I hope to do with the movie industry. I hope the movie industry looks at “The Marine 3: Homefront” and goes, wow, not only has this guy been on a reality show and in WWE, but this guy can really act and did an incredible job.

    This is coming from a Miz supporter… Since his face turn, the fans haven’t really cheered as much as they’ve been awkardly silent.

    miz is boring.

  3. Chris James says:

    Garbage.

  4. Kerry says:

    Miz: Really?

    Fans: REALLY!!

    LMAO!

  5. Scott II says:

    I was willing to give Miz a shot as a face, but it isn’t working. I think him being heel is his bread and butter.

  6. Shockmaster Suplex says:

    The Miz’s theatrical Figure-four leglock is lame and unconvincing, it’s really a disservice to the Nature Boy to have him “mentor” a former WWE champ and current mid-card jabroni whose pretty much stuck creatively, a head scratcher for me. Naitch looks like he’s in his own world anyways, Stylin’ and Profilin’.

  7. N. Gaijin says:

    I’m with deathedge and Scott II, I really like The Miz as a heel, but as a face, he just isn’t connecting. Part of it is, his promos don’t work for someone trying to play face, and the other part is, too many fans still genuinely dislike him and are just never going to be won over. He has much more heat as a heel and is really exceptional in that role – the ratings that resulted from his tenure as champion prove that.
