The Miz is definitely one of the most established and decorated WWE Superstars in the history of the company. In addition to winning several championships in the company, The Miz also has his own reality show and acted in movies.

The A-Lister has also main evented WrestleMania once in his career. The Miz had a very rocky start to his WWE career and many believed he would get fired soon enough. However, he persevered and became one of the mainstays of the company.

The Miz’s career is also synonymous with John Morrison. as the two have a lot of history. The two became a tag team during their time in WWE’s version of ECW from 2007 until they eventually feuded against each other. When Morrison returned to WWE in 2019, he was immediately paired with The Miz until The Miz eventually turned on him last year.

While speaking on Freddie Prinze Jr.’s podcast “Wrestling with Freddie,” The Miz discussed just how much of an influence John Morrison had on his career. The Miz proceeded to explain how John Morrison helped make him a better pro wrestler as well.


“If you want to be in the entertainment industry, you have to be a sponge and you have to be willing to fail. As much as you [Freddie Prinze Jr.] said I was the glue in Miz & Morrison, it’s not true. Morrison is such an out-of-the-box thinker. He would think of the oddest, weird things that aren’t supposed to work and then we would come together and make them work.

We had such great chemistry, and he’s so smart and able, and willing, and we both push each other to be the best that we possibly can, so we’re both the glue in that. There’s no doubt in my mind about that. John pushes me to be the best Superstar I could possibly be and he always has.”

The Miz lost to Edge at the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view in a singles match. It remains to be seen what is next in store for the A-Lister.
