Hey, if it was Taker´s bag, he probably would´ve gotten Tombstoned as well! And if it was Khali´s bag.... nah, Khali would´ve just gotten upset if it was his chicken, not the bag... *LOL*

Victories over DX however controversal are good as well it gives him a bit more credibility if he was to ever feud with the DX or just HHH or HBK in the future.
 
Keep Miz away from wrestling Triple H, thats all what I can say. Hunter would bury Miz, when any midcarder on the rise is put against Triple H, you could say that there push is about to come to an end.

Many of the same questions he no doubt gets bored of answering time and time again.
 
Most fans already know his TV character is like he is in real life but with the volume turned up.
 
It's good his goal in the industry is to be an all time great in the same bracket as Naitch and Stone Cold.

WWE Champion The Miz took part in a conference call with media yesterday to promote this weekend's WWE Tribute to the Troops special on NBC. Here are some highlights, courtesy of IGN:

What was it like meeting and doing a RAW Slammy segment with little 9-year-old Cayley? Aka "Miz Girl." Aka "Scowly."

The Miz: [laughs] Yes yes. The angry Miz girl! Aw, man that was arguably one of my favorite moments. That little girl literally made my WWE Championship win. When I got backstage, the only thing anyone could talk about was that little girl's scowling face, being so mad at me. And as soon as I saw it I thought "that's the exact fan reaction I wanted out of the crowd." And sometimes you don't get that. Sometimes fans see the camera and go "Oh, hey. I'm on camera." She didn't see it. You could see the passion that she had for Randy Orton and how mad she was that he lost. It made my day. I guess the dad actually called, because the next week, in my address, I talked about the fan reaction being one of shock and anger and I showed her picture again. So her dad called up and said that she was more than willing to come back if we ever needed her. So, of course, being WWE like we are, we totally leapt at he opportunity and took the reins.

And just going out there and getting on one kneeI mean, how do you talk to a little girl and then take something from a kid? You have to be so nice to them so that they trust you, and then you take it from them. And then they get really really mad. It was so great. And backstage, she was the shyest little girl. It was so cute to see her back there and everyone told me that when Randy came up to her she gave him a big hug and she was so shy and nervous that she couldn't talk. And then to watch her go out there and start thanking her dad and her mom and her family. And then me, being the big bully that I am, taking the Slammy away from her. [laughs]

Do you think WWE expected the kind of mainstream media attention that your title win got? I mean, it got picked up by a lot of major outlets.

Miz: I don't think anyone expected it. I certainly didn't expect it at all. Usually, when titles change there isn't that much media, so I wasn't expecting anything. But as soon as I got home, suddenly 50 people that I didn't realize I knew, and didn't know had my number, and didn't know watched WWE, texted and called me. I had voice mails for days. And then all the outlets. Like MTV.com got a hold of it. They didn't even say anything when I got signed to WWE. US Weekly, who never covers WWE, covered us. TMZ asked me to host their show. I'm going on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. It just makes me so happy because that's the goal that I want. I want people that normally don't talk to us and normally don't say anything to us to come in and say "You know, this kid has something. We want to talk to him. And he's got a good story so we want to learn more." And it legit is. It's a real life story. It's like a movie and I'm living it. It's like a dream come true.

What was it like, both as a fan and a wrestler, to face Jerry Lawler on RAW a few weeks back?

Miz: As a fan, it's surreal. Because I remember watching Jerry back when I was a kid. And to grow up and be in his first ever WWE Championship match, It was just incredible. Especially since it was a TLC match. It was my first ever TLC match so it was a new opportunity for me. It was my first title defense. And it was against Jerry "The King" Lawler. So whenever I can say that, and those words come out of my mouth, it just makes me smile. And the fact that I beat him made it even better.

I really like that he puts over Jerry. His character is cocky, but from his interviews you can tell that he has a lot of respect for the legends and all of the people that helped him. He might not be thrilled about other veterans from the locker room *cough* JBL *cough* but still, he realizes it wasn't just him. I hope he gets a nice little title run. Just do not let him be champion when HHH comes back, please do not let that happen WWE. You will lose a new star because HHH is very well known to do that.

Quote New WWE champion The Miz was interviewed by Bill Simmons of ESPN.com for over an hour about his career progression, current events in WWE, sports subjects, and reality TV. The following are highlights of his interview.

-- Unrelated to his WWE Title victory, Miz was asked why WWE doesn't have an off-season. Simmons asked if it would benefit the wrestlers to be able to rest and recover taking a few months off during the year.

"I don't know. I kind of enjoy not having an off-season. I get bored really easily. I feel like we're the hardest working company in the industry and we take pride in that," Miz said. "I think the value in not having an off-season - that's why we're the longest running episodic show in TV history. (But) if someone's injured, we give them time off."

Putting Miz's comment into context, it came across like a company line that was the right thing to say by deflecting the question onto how he views it personally. Miz stressed throughout the interview that he wants to be "the guy" for WWE, like John Cena, doing as much media as possible to get the WWE brand out in public.

-- Miz is marketing his current WWE Title run as a "screw you" to the Legends who came before the current generation. He cited Roddy Piper's promo on the "Old School" Raw as the impetus for his heel title run. He said he even wanted to WWE to bring back the Legends on Monday's Raw - his first TV show as new champion - to cut a promo on them.

-- Miz made two bold claims that seemed to come from a mixed perspective of Miz, the character, and Miz, the person.

"I think our product is the best it's ever been," Miz said about the current product. "I think the characters are the driving force."

He tried to sell that statement by saying WWE has to be so creative in today's wrestling era because the bar was raised so high in the Attitude Era that the audience has seen everything already.

Miz said he believes that carries over to the in-ring wrestling product where they have to tell "such elaborate stories to get our characters over."

Miz's other bold claim was believing he can make WWE bigger than it was during the Attitude Era. After taking the WWE Title, Miz said his new goal is to "make WWE the biggest, most phenomenal it's ever been."

-- The other piece of marketing Miz identified for his WWE Title run is going for shock value. Miz played up his "undeserving champion" role and said he wants to draw people to Raw because people believe he can drop the title on any given night.

"I want to be the most unpredictable, most must-see champion. I want shock value," Miz said. He cited his first night as champion containing a TLC match against Jerry Lawler of all people.

-- Related to current news, Miz confirmed that Randy Orton was not on Monday's Raw getting an MRI on an injury. He hinted his title feud is going toward a re-match with Orton, which WWE is advertising locally in Houston for the TLC PPV.

Simmons brought up John Cena's storyline "firing" and said he thought they could have turned the angle into three months of TV with Cena appearing under a mask. Simmons lamented WWE quickly transitioning into Cena beating up Nexus on Monday's Raw. Miz didn't have an opportunity to really discuss that development, as Simmons moved on to other subjects.

-- Miz described his emotions when he became WWE champion: "There's nothing that can explain it. Once you hear the one, two, three, and you hear the noise of 'the new WWE champion, The Miz,' you go through all these motions."

Backstage after capturing the title, Miz said he was greeted by clapping and a standing ovation. He also said he saw John Morrison, his former tag partner, and quipped to him, "I told you I wasn't the Jannetty."

-- Miz said the current locker room leader on Raw is John Cena, but he's not sure about Smackdown with The Undertaker out of action. He guessed it would be Kane, Edge, or Rey Mysterio.

-- Regarding the McMahon family, Miz said he hasn't seen Stephanie McMahon backstage at TV in a while. He said he hasn't seen Shane McMahon "in a long time" after Shane departed the company at the beginning of the year. He complemented Triple H on being a "great mind to talk to."

-- Other miscellaneous wrestling items include Dean Malenko coming up with his Skullcrushing Finale finishing move. Miz said Chris Jericho claims he stole the move from him.

Miz said he would like to see a resurgence in tag team wrestling. "I wish they (WWE) would put more into the tag team matches," he said.

Simmons quipped that he knew Miz "made it" when he had a flunky (Alex Riley) following him around. Simmons closed with a tongue-in-cheek warning to watch out for Riley because the sidekick always gets jealous in wrestling.

Miz strongly endorsed Wade Barrett's mic work when asked who some of the better talkers are in WWE. He also talked up John Cena's babyface promos.

-- On the sports front, Miz said he considered attending tonight's Cleveland Cavaliers game in his hometown where former Cavs star LeBron James will be returning to Cleveland for the first time on the Miami Heat.

Miz said he opted not to attend the game and go home to Los Angeles because he doesn't get to spend much time at home. He said he'll be on the road for the majority of the rest of the year.

Miz also laid out a scenario where he could have brought the WWE Title belt with him to tonight's Cavs game and stormed the court if things get out of hand.

Regarding LeBron James's "Decision" in the summer when he announced he would be joining the Heat, Miz talked about James having the opportunity to become the ultimate babyface if he announced he was staying in Cleveland rather than turning heel and going to Miami. Miz concluded his promo on James, saying, "I brought the championship to Cleveland, not LeBron."

When WWE was in Miami for Survivor Series in November, Miz said he begged the WWE writers to allow him to cut a promo on James and the Heat. He said the writers wanted him to make it relevant to his heel persona, then they told him he had ten minutes to talk.

No need for an off season as when someone gets injured or needs time off, it just gives someone else the chance to step up.
 
That would have been awesome and should have been allowed to happen. Imagine Miz talking down to the legends who doubted him winning the title.
 
So few people would agree with what he said there.

The Miz continues to be awesome. Good buzz and generous praise for others (in HBKDX97's post).

Jeff Jarrett was using that move over a decade ago in WCW. Its by no means 'a new move'.

Quote WWE Champion The Miz spoke with Brian Fritz of Fanhouse.com this weekend. Here are some highlights:

You've talked before about everything you went through during your early days in WWE and trying to win over your peers. Do you feel like you've finally gotten over that hump now?

No. It's funny because the way it really works is like this. When I won the United States Championship, everyone said I never defended it. When I won the Tag Team Championships, Big Show was carrying me. When I won the Tag Team Championships with John Morrison, John Morrison was carrying me. Then when I won Money in the Bank it was a fluke. Now I win the WWE Championship and now I'm a paper champion and the only reason I won is because Randy Orton was injured and seven people beat him up. But the fact remains I am still WWE Champion and I really don't care what people think cause the fact still remains I'm el number uno.

What do you think it's going to take for people to say you are a main event star and he should be champion?

It takes a lot of years and a lot of building. And I'm still building. I've been building myself for the past four years that I've been here. If you've looked at me from the beginning until now you'll see a person that has evolved, and I need to keep evolving and keep getting better and keep being the best that I can possibly be and keep on being unpredictable so people say I have no idea what the dude is going to do or say. I'm going to watch him next week just to see what happens. And that's the type of personality I'm going to be and who I am.

Are you going to be disappointed if you're not in the main event at WrestleMania?

Uh, yeah! I'm WWE Champion and I plan on having it long past WrestleMania. I don't know if you heard me but I said I was going to be the longest-reigning WWE Champion in the history of this company and I plan on doing that. Everything that I ever said I was going to do, I've done. I told everyone I was going to win the United States Championship; I won it. I won the unified Tag Team Championships and I said I was going to win them. I said I was going to win Money in the Bank; I won Money in the Bank. I said I was going to cash in the Money in the Bank and win the WWE Championship. Everyone told me I was going to be the first to lose. I didn't lose. I won. So now hear this: I'm going to be the longest-reigning WWE Champion in the history of this company. I'm beating Bruno Sammartino.

The TLC pay-per-view is coming up on Sunday. It's a tables match between you and Randy. We're not going to see some cheap win where maybe he tries to RKO you and you go over the table and he falls through...

I love the way you're saying this like we're not going to see a cheap win. (laughs) Let's put it this way. I win at any way possible. Any way possible I will win. I go for anything. I don't care. I don't care if it's cheap. I don't care if it's cheating. I don't care if it's anything that people don't like. I've never cared what people thought and I don't care now because I'm keeping this WWE Championship no matter what.

All he said is true, and he should be more bothered what people think of him.
 
It also takes strong booking so he looks deserving of the belt.
 
I bet Bruno Sammartino is shaking as we speak at the prospect of losing his record.
