WWE Champion The Miz recently joined former WWE presenter Renee Paquette on the Oral Sessions podcast for an interview. The A-Lister was asked how he would book himself if he got the opportunity to do WWE Chairman Vince McMahon’s job. He went on to give an answer which is the dream of everyone in WWE.
I would be going into the main event of WrestleMania: The Miz
The Miz is having his second reign as the WWE Champion after dethroning Drew McIntyre at Elimination Chamber as he cashed in his Money in the Bank contract at the event.
He further spoke about the No.1 contender to the title right now, Bobby Lashley who had an immense contribution to The Miz’ successful cash-in of the contract.
When asked about walking in Vince McMahon’s shoes for booking himself, the A-lister said that he would love to see himself headline the Grandest Stage of Them All.
The Miz said: “That’s a lot to think about. If I was given the keys to the car, obviously, I would be going into the main event of WrestleMania.”
He further said that Bobby Lashley is very much intimidating and the recent promo that he cut on him challenging for the title was scary.
It is true what he said as Lashley has been a dominant force and had won the United States Championship but was defeated for the title by Matt Riddle.
Speaking on Bobby Lashley, Miz said: “Hopefully, like, right now, with Bobby Lashley and MVP – I don’t know if you saw the promo that Bobby Lashley cut on me. But, whenever that man is in your face, it’s scary. And the way he’s been performing in the ring is scary because he is an absolute beast, a monster. He is “The Almighty”.
The Miz reveals who he wants to be the #1 Contender for WWE title
The Miz praised Drew McIntyre but said that if he were to book the match, he would choose his tag-team partner, John Morrison to be the challenger for the title instead of either of the two men mentioned above.
He said: “I’d love even to see John Morrison get a shot at a WWE Championship. I think John Morrison is arguably the most talented, underrated Superstar that we have in WWE. And I think that people need to see him be showcased even more than he is right now.”
But, coming back to reality, The Miz is set to defend the title for the first time on RAW against Bobby Lashley.
