The Miz recently spoke with the folks from Sports Illustrated to promote his match with Shane McMahon at this Sunday’s WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view.
During the interview, the WWE veteran spoke at length about John Oliver’s recent piece on the independent contractor situation in WWE on his Last Week Tonight show on HBO.
“Who doesn’t take shots at WWE, especially when WrestleMania is around? All the news is about that,” said The Miz. “The way I look at what he said, and I don’t know all of it verbatim… I’ve been there for 13+ years. I met my wife in WWE, and we now have a child together, and trust me, I live a pretty incredible life. It’s not every day where you get to go out in front of 80,000 people and either have them boo or cheer you, but be interactive. We get to create moments that last a lifetime. And the way I’m treated, I’ve got to perform in movies with WWE Studios, I have my own reality show ‘Miz & Mrs.’ on the USA Network, which you can see every Tuesday. I’ve been so fortunate of everything that WWE has given to me.”
The Miz continued, “Now, are there people that are going to be disgruntled and upset? I imagine you have people here at SI Now that are disgruntled and upset… ‘Oh, I should get this, I should get that…’ But the thing is, it’s like, what are you doing to get it? And I feel like I’ve gotten everything I’ve ever wanted from WWE, and more.”
