WWE's annual tribute to the troops has entertained American forces for 1
I was in Bahrain, I was in Iraq, Afghanistan, Spain, Poland, Abu Dhabi, all over the world, he said. "Go there and actually see the life they lead … it's unbelievable, man. "
Miz, real name Mike Mizanin, is known for his exuberant and outspoken personality, which he challenged during his TV debut over MTV's Real World Rules and its road-off rules. Probably one of his most memorable moments in WWE was a segment at Talking Smack when he blew up at Daniel Bryan and previously told the WWE Universe that Smackdown was. show: "
However, when we spoke with The Miz about an interview on the Tributes it becomes clear that he did something through his experiences with military personnel. "I remember seeing a sergeant come in. He showed me a photo of a woman and a baby signing an autograph, saying," They met my daughter before I met her. "I could not believe it That's what these men and women of ministry produce, you know?"
Miz is not an armed soldier, but he plays a movie, and since 2013 has starred in the title role in the film series [19459015TheMarine following in the footsteps of John Cena.The impact his role has on military personnel is not lost for him. "When I heard that I The Marine and I [thought] "Okay, I have a great duty to make sure that everything I do, I see, walk, talk and behave like a Marine, because these guys are real superheroes, these are the men and women, the ultimate sacrifice for us, and the only thing I can do is literally improve my craft and really make sure I do a good job for them. "
Although he appreciates the praise, that he from military and military f For his role in The Marine he also makes it clear to them: "I am only an actor, you act. [They’re] the [people] which actually did [are].
When asked what he noticed most during his entire time, Tribute to the Troops, Miz remembers a visit to Iraq. " I remember climbing into an armed vehicle with an orange pole sticking out. It was really out of place. I [asked the driver]: "What about the orange rod?" He says, "Dude, it saves our lives, it heats up the landmine before it blows us up." I go, "Has that ever happened?" He says, "Yeah, it happened yesterday." As if it were a nonchalant everyday guy!
Beyond Tribute to the Troops, Miz also hosts a marathon for his reality show Miz and Mrs. which was recently redone for a second season The way Miz lives in front of the camera is emotionally exhausting, but he enjoys it. "Ever since I was a kid, I've always had [been] a ham for the camera. Whenever there is a video camera somewhere, "he says," There was a huge VHS video recorder my dad would have and I would make videos that I would enjoy editing. So I like it, you know?
Miz also does not try to claim that anything on Miz and Mrs. is faithful to life and calls it "hybrid reality".
"What we want to do is make sure everyone is entertained. It does not matter if it's real or not – all that matters is that you laugh, sit with your family and have fun, "he explains.
Between WWE, a TV / movie star, and the father of a young child (Monroe Sky) with his wife Maryse, we wondered how he would manage to keep fit on such a tight schedule on earth, and it turns out he's still trying to find out for himself. " Being a new dad is the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with because you … now you have no sleep, because if Monroe is up, I'm, "he says" But I'm actually building a gym
If you can not go to the gym, you might as well bring it to you, right?
Despite the chaos, Miz is still there. He takes his time to focus on his diet, which in his opinion is the most important part to stay in shape. "Everything is 90% diet. Do you want to lose weight? You look at your diet. It's not for an hour, you look at your diet. If I get a sweet potato [at a restaurant]I do not want butter, I do not want brown sugar. I want it to be simple and clean, and that's the best way to do it. "
Before the end of the interview, we could not help but ask him how he feels about his eternal love for his hometown of Cleveland Brown, a team once infamous for staying 600 days without a victory. This season, the Browns are finally looking for the Browns after a big coaching shake-up, so we wondered if Miz finally felt confirmed in his fandom.
"Vindicated? No, "he says. Do I feel that the Browns are changing the landscape and changing the view and perception of who we are? I want a winning record, I want eight wins, I want to be 8-7-1, and if we do that from a 0-16 team, that's unbelievable. "
Well, when the Browns die Shocking the NFL world with a respectable record this season, then perhaps we should not be surprised at anyone as over-the-top as the Miz can truly be a modest guy in real life.
The Tribute to the Troops will be this Thursday aired at 9 / 8c on the USA Network as part of WWE Holiday Week.
