The Miz is a WWE veteran
According to what was revealed to the microphones of PW Mania by the same IMPACT Wrestling athlete, Jessie Godderz, who was a TV star before becoming a wrestler, WWE had primordial plans to have a feud between him and The Miz, never sent but on stage on his television screens.
Regarding this matter, Godderz has in fact stated: "Apparently Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis liked my look, my charisma and also liked the way I could promote myself to the mainstream WWE audience. I only found out later that they had an idea for me to feud between The Miz and me as two reality show stars butting heads.
At Big Brother, you're locked inside a house for several months and you don't have telephones or other means of communication with the outside world, so they haven't been able to get me any kind of message of interest. After a few weeks, therefore, their interest vanished and they therefore abandoned the idea of ââhaving me with them.
This was June of 2009, I believe." The Miz has explained why he was kicked out of the WWE locker room early on in his WWE career. “One day I was eating a piece of chicken in the locker room,” he said. “Someone comes in and goes, ‘Dude, you’re eating over my bag.’ And his bag was right there.
I was like, ‘Oh, no, no, no.’ He goes, ‘Dude, you just got stuff all over my bag.’ I go [shakes head]… I still don’t think I got stuff on his bag, but I was [saying], ‘I’m sorry, I apologize.’ Another person walked in, ‘Oh, you got stuff on his bag? How could you do that? Unbelievable.’ And I thought they were joking”.
