The Miz has been part of WWE for almost two decades now and there is no doubt one of his best feuds was with Bryan Danielson. In fact, he took credit for Danielson’s in-ring return following his premature retirement.

On the August 23, 2016, episode of Talking Smack, Bryan Danielson and The Miz took part in one of the most iconic promos in WWE history. It ended up elevating The Miz to the very next level, while Bryan Danielson was visibly upset and stormed off the set.

The A-Lister took to Twitter and uploaded a clip from the upcoming episode of WWE Rivals, which will focus on his and Bryan Danielson’s rivalry. He took a shot at Danielson by taking credit for his in-ring return by implying Danielson only came back after listening to The Miz.

“Looks like @bryandanielson listened to me after all. Tune in TONIGHT for an all-new episode of WWE Rivals at 8/7c only on @AETV,


The segment elevated the Intercontinental Championship’s prestige for the subsequent months. However, WWE hasn’t quite managed to achieve the same level of success with their promos since then. Nevertheless, The Miz and Bryan Danielson will always hold mutual respect for each other, regardless of the circumstances.

Do you believe the promo was one of the best things to have happened to The Miz? Sound off in the comments!
