The Miz Talks His Reaction To Being Involved In Zombie WrestleMania Backlash Match
WWE Superstar The Miz recently did an interview with Alfred Konuwa from Forbes and spoke on a number of topics. Among them, The Miz revealed that he had a blast doing the Zombies Lumberjack Match at WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view.
Admitting that not everyone was behind having the match, he took a different approach to working the creative. He said, “I always enjoy whenever there’s something different and something out of the box, and whenever there’s something like that, I wanna be a part of it because you never know what’s going to happen.” He added, “You never know if it’s gonna be a success or if it’s gonna be a failure.”
He noted reactions he’s been hearing were 50/50. Some said that people loved it and thought it was creative, while others hated it. He noted, “so I just look at it like ‘I’m gonna do the best I possibly can and give the match that hopefully everyone wants and deserves.”
As far as getting injured in the match goes, he seemed to confirm that he did suffer an injury, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as many wrestling sites and news outlets made it out to be. He explained: “I don’t expect to be out nine months. As a matter of fact, I was on Monday Night Raw last week and I plan on being on Monday Night Raw next week.”
As for when he’ll get back in the ring: “I don’t know. That’s for the doctors to decide and figure out. But I feel like a million bucks, and the way my headspace is, I don’t like to be gone for long.”
Miz Has The Right Attitude
The Miz is right in that you can’t be afraid to try things in WWE. Not everything is going to work out and some attempts will wind up flopping. That said, if you never take a chance on something you’re unsure about, you are much less likely to really hit it out of the park if you stumble onto an idea that resonates with the WWE Universe.
As the famous hockey player Wayne Gretzky once said, ‘You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.’
