The Miz comments on his WrestleMania Backlash Zombie Match
“I had a blast with it. 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. You never know if it’s gonna be a success or if it’s gonna be a failure.”
“People were different, people were 50/50 ‘oh we can’t stand this match,’ or ‘oh my God this is a great match, it’s kind of funny, it’s kind of interesting. 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.’”
The Miz also revealed that he was annoyed with news outlets reporting that he was out for nine months.
“Just look at all the news out there. They must be right (about my injury), right? They’re reporting on it, telling you exactly what’s going on. They must know! They must be geniuses!
“I was looking on Twitter, and then I was looking on news sites that were talking about my injury and I’m like “first off, how do they know? Because I’ve never said anything and they’re saying things wrong, like all wrong. And it’s annoying, I guess you can say, because I heard I was out nine months.”
“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. Now, when will I have a real match? 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.”
