The Miz has wrestled all around the world as a WWE Superstar. He is now forced to apply his craft in front of zero live fans, but he’s making the most of it.
While speaking to Logan Paul’s podcast, The Miz opened up about performing in front of no live fans. He equated it to performing in Japan as those crowds are often quieter and concentrate on every bit of the action.
The Miz pushes himself using the thought that people are at home paying just as much attention. He said it’s actually making him better in the ring dealing with this extra obstacle.
“You’ve got to find a different way, I guess, to get the adrenaline and to utilize it. It reminds me almost like I’ve used it like almost a Japanese crowd. You know that in the Japanese audience they’re watching and they’re invested in everything you do. So in my mind, I’m just picturing the people at home being invested in everything that we’re doing. So every little maneuver counts. So it’s actually making me a better performer in the ring for sure.”
“Yeah. I mean, there’s no doubt that everybody in WWE is pushing harder when they’re in the ring now. I think it’s going to translate when whenever the time comes that we can have an audience back, because everything that I feel like we do in WWE, that’s different. That takes us out of the box. We utilize it and say, you know what? What did we learn from this and how we use it when we’re back to normal?”
It might be a long time before pro wrestling returns to live crowds once again. It will take a of effort, but this is a very difficult time for a lot of people. The Miz seems to be making the most of it.
