WrestleMania 37 might be far away, but The Miz is already setting goals for his ideal opponent if the event takes place as planned in Los Angeles.
The topic of next year’s WrestleMania was brought up during an interview The Miz took part in this week with Daniel Trainor of AwardsWatch.com.
“Cleveland is my hometown, but LA is where I live, and so I consider that home as well. So, to be in my backyard, to not be the main event of WrestleMania, will be a huge disappointment on my behalf.”
Adding: “Now I look at the card and I look at who just came back. ‘The Big Dog’ Roman Reigns. Not only that, but he won the Universal Championship and now he has Paul Heyman in his pocket. He is the most dangerous Superstar in all of WWE now. If you didn’t believe he had it before, which I did believe, I’ve always believed he had it … but if you didn’t believe, now with Heyman in his pocket … you are going to believe. Cause Heyman will make you believe.”
Reigns returned to WWE at SummerSlam and won the Universal title one week later at Payback.
Miz, who has been hosting the new version of Talking Smack as of late, says he now needs to take his own advice in order to achieve his WrestleMania goal.
“I need to take my own advice and start getting more serious,” he said. “Getting more elevated inside the WWE ring to where people will view me as a viable opponent for someone like Roman Reigns as Universal champion with Paul Heyman by his side. I know what I need to do now.”
