The Miz Says He’s Proud of Being Intercontinental Champion, Talks Championship Match at Battleground, More

The Miz spoke with DC101 promoting Battleground this weekend. Some highlights are below:

On his feeling as he walks through the curtain: “I’m a nervous wreck. I feel like I’m going to throw up, I feel like I’m going to faint. There’s just something about it, I get so amped up. I talk to myself in my mind and say, “Why am I doing this? What is wrong with you? Why do you put yourself through this each and every week? Why are you doing this to yourself” But once I go through the curtain and I hear the audience either cheer or boo me, it all vanishes!”

On his match with Darren Young at Battleground: “Darren Young is an up and coming star. This guy is very good in the ring. He’s quick, he’s aggressive and he’s got Bob Backlund by his side. Bob Backlund, for those who don’t know, is a 2 time WWE Champion and a Hall of Famer, he’s a WWE Legend, and he’s teaching Darren so much. But you can’t teach experience, and that’s what I have.”

On being proud of holding the Intercontinental Championship: “When I was a kid, Ultimate Warrior held the Intercontinental Championship, Mr. Perfect held it. Those are the people that I remember and I want to be the person that kids today remember with the Intercontinental Championship. That’s why I do as much media as I can, putting this title out there, showing people exactly what it is, making it the prestigious and honorable title that it is and that is deserves.”

On the WWE Championship Match at Battleground: “These are three main eventers, top guys, in both rosters for Smackdown and RAW. And it’ll be interesting to see where the title goes, because that’s the WWE Championship. If the title goes to Roman Reigns or Seth Rollins, the title goes to RAW. However, if Dean Ambrose can retain it, it stays on Smackdown.”
