“Listen, anytime The Rock wants to come back to WWE, I welcome him back with open arms. The Rock is the reason I wanted to become a WWE superstar, and not only that, but he brings his movie crowd to the WWE, and if the ratings are going up and you’re watching Raw, guess what, people are seeing The Miz, and more people are going to stay and watch The Miz. So if The Rock wants to come back, I open my arms to it because he always brings a whole new set of WWE fans.”
He said he got acting advice from The Rock for Marine 3: Homefront, which is out on DVD and Blu-Ray today….
“I texted The Rock, because let’s face it, The Rock is the biggest action hero right now in movies, so I was like, listen, Rock, what’s your best advice, and he told me to just be natural. He said that too many times guys try and be this big guy, but it ends up looking robotic. He told me to act natural, have fun, and enjoy the scenes, enjoy yourself. It sounds so simple, but when you get in there and there are all these cameras and you have different takes and different feelings, being natural is great advice, and it actually helped out a lot.”
The Miz also discussed adopting the Figure-Four Leg-lock from Ric Flair…
“One of the greatest moments of my life. Growing up watching Ric Flair, wooing to all my friends, and trying to put on the figure-four leglock on my buddies, and then having him come out on Miz TV and not only having a woo-off with him, not only strutting with him, but having him kind of say, hey, go ahead and put on my move that I’ve made famous through the years and won many world titles with. It’s just incredible. I hope to pay tribute to Ric Flair and his greatness every time I put it on.”
