I don’t want this to sound arrogant or selfish, but I am one of a kind. We are all unique. And just because one person doesn’t do something or another person doesn’t do this or does this or does this, it doesn’t mean I can’t. “
“I’m very versatile, where I can make you laugh, but I can also make you believe that I can yell at anyone who is in that ring at any given time,” he continued. “There is a balance. I can understand that balance, give that balance, and whenever I find myself in a serious kind of situation, I can make them understand that it is something serious for me. The fact that I’m joking, making you laugh, being a fool, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a serious side. “
Miz says it took him “a long time to figure that out,” saying, “A lot of people are one-trick ponies. I am not.”
The Miz Heats Up With Stephanie McMahon

“If you are not on television, WWE has many avenues where you can show your talent. In 2007, John Morrison and I were having great games, but nobody knew who we were as a team. I went to Stephanie McMahon and cut her a promo, and I said, ‘John and I want to do The Dirt Sheet.’ She said, ‘What is The Dirt Sheet?’ ‘It’s a show that’s a cross between The Soup, Saturday Night Live, lots of skits and variety. We are going to annoy everyone. “So I got really hot and gave him a promotion and said:” We are the best team of the 21st century, be jealous! “,” Be jealous, I like that! “The next day, I got a call from creatives saying, ‘What is this you want to do? Stephanie wants you to do it.’ We start writing and editing every week. It was before YouTube existed. We created it and it allowed us to show who we were. When opportunities don’t present themselves, do it yourself ” Edge was ready to face The Miz in a surprise match.

Keith Lee’s ‘illness’ revealed in WWE
Keith Lee just can’t take any kind of break when it comes to his position in WWE. It seems that the worst is yet to come.
Billi Bhatti appeared on the latest episode of the podcast show “The Dirty Sheets” and talked about the next step in Keith Lee’s WWE career. Note that all of his claims are his, and Keith Lee has never confirmed that he had COVID, although he was close to his girlfriend Mia Yim, who tested positive. This is what we have. WWE said it was an “injury” on television, but the only wrestler they have acknowledged receiving COVID is Drew McIntyre.
Bhatti: “So Keith Lee has like, long Covid … He had Covid. He came back without Covid and then he had a fight with Matt Riddle where he could almost barely breathe afterwards.
Bhatti: “So, they decided not to bring him back until he was completely better. So they called off the game and put Morrison on. Before all of that, when the game was booked, Lashley was just winning that. “
Bhatti continues: “When they were doing Edge and Drew and all that, Lashley was just going to do a mania US title defense against someone, I mean, it may have even been against the guy he didn’t catch in this game.”
Bhatti: “I think it was just going to be Lashley and Keith Lee in mania. Then they get all this over with, and the other thing was, over this weekend, I think if Keith Lee had been in shape, he might have been in contention for Lashley’s place, I don’t know for sure. . You’d think Lee could have turned around hitting Riddle and then he could have gone off and attacked Drew. ”
Kurt Angle ‘negotiated’ comeback match with big name
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle remains one of the most technically gifted professional wrestlers to ever set foot inside the squared circle. He had arguably the best rookie year in WWE history as he won the WWE Championship in one year and competed at the highest level for many years after that.
Angle would leave WWE in 2006 and headed to TNA Wrestling, where he spent a decade with the company, surpassing the seven years that he remained in WWE. He also had instant classics on TNA, including matches against players like AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuiness, and many more.
Angle would return to WWE in 2017 and also had a short career as a competitor in the ring, before finally returning to WrestleMania 35 in 2019. He lost his last match against Baron Corbin, in a move that Angle really regrets until this date.
According to a report from PWInsider, it was revealed that Impact Wrestling opened negotiations with Kurt Angle last year about the idea of Angle returning to face Ken Shamrock.
When we interviewed him last year, he didn’t rule out the idea of guest appearances. Impact Wrestling opened negotiations with him last year with the idea that Angle would return to fight Ken Shamrock, but they did not reach an agreement, as we were told that Angle chose not to participate in the discussions. So we may not have seen the last of him in the ring, but as a full-time artist, it’s not happening.
