The Miz Recalls A Time When He Thought He Would Be Fired

During the most recent edition of WWE 24, The Miz recalled a botched promo, and revealed that he thought he would be fired for it.

The error happened during the 2006 Diva search, after The Miz completely forgot one of his lines. Miz told viewers:

“I remember going backstage thinking, ‘I’m going to get fired,’” he said. “And I walk back, I went over to Vince, I go, ‘I’m so sorry, I apologize, this will never happen again. I will make sure it will not happen again.’ He goes, ‘I know it won’t happen again.’ He took me aside and he said, ‘Bullet points, kid. You need to learn bullet points, and I know you will do better next time because you will have to do it next Friday.’ So it was like, ‘Oh, I’m not fired.”

As an eight-time Intercontinental Champion, as well as two-time WWE Champion, Miz has experienced many highs and lows throughout his career. According to The Miz, his on-screen partnership with Maryse took him to the next level. The two-time Grand Slam Champion spoke about the moments leading up to the pairing, and mentioned:

“A long time passed where I was just fiddling, sputtering,” he said. “Sometimes I thought I would be fired. Little things happened that brought me up, like being with Mizdow [Damien Sandow]. You know, it had a height and then it started going back down again, and I’m like, ‘Man, how do we get back to where I was?’ And then WrestleMania [in 2016] hit and the next day Maryse came back.”
