The Miz On Why His New Show With Maryse Is Not a ‘Reality’ Show, Becoming a Father, WWE Accommodating Him
WWE star The Miz recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TV Insider to promote his new MTV show The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars, and below are some interview highlights.
On his upcoming show “Miz & Mrs” airing on USA Network:
“You learn over the years for these shows that you need good characters,” he said. “Little did I know that the most amazing characters are the characters of my life, which are Maryse, her mother, my mom, my dad, my family, my friends.
“As much as I’d love to call [Miz & Mrs.] a reality show, it’s really not. It’s documenting first-time parents in the entertainment industry and the things you have to go through. There are funny moments because, honestly, this is a 30-minute comedy where you are going to be able to relate to it whether you have kids or not.
On becoming a father:
“You literally have to pry her from my arms,” he said. “Every time I leave it’s just so heartbreaking.
“It’s funny; all my friends were like, ‘When you have a kid, it changes you.’ I was always the guy who said, ‘No it won’t.’
“Now I understand and get it. This little girl from when I first met her stole my heart. She opened up a whole new area of my heart that I didn’t even know I had. There was this love you have for your son or daughter that is indescribable. You can’t describe it until it happens. I now understand and get it.”
On how WWE has helped since he and Maryse became parents:
“I’m part of a team. I’m part of a team at home with Maryse and Monroe. I’m part of a team with WWE. And if one of those pieces goes away, that messes up the team comradery. I didn’t want to do that to Maryse or WWE.
“Luckily, I have a beautiful wife who is so understanding and has been in the business. WWE has been accommodating to me that they are like, ‘Listen, you can come whenever you need to come or whenever you need to be there. We’ll give you whatever you need.’ They’ve been very helpful.”
