During an interview with Busted Open, Miz talked about whether or not his push in WWE was given to him too fast.
I don't think it was too soon at all. I think I was hot right then and there. I was at my pinnacle, if you will, and it all came to point when I won the WWE Championship and retained it at Wrestlemania. But do I ever think I'll be it again? Absolutely. Every year I'm working hard to basically be in that position and sometimes you get it and other times you don't. It's timing, it's luck, it's skill. So many things get involved to being in that main event. You have to peak at the perfect time, and sometimes you're not peaking at the right time. Sometimes you're peaking when mania isn't around. But that's when you want to peak. You're training for it, you're dieting, you're working hard in the ring. Every time we go out there on Monday Night Raw, I'm thinking of new ways that I can possibly get this audience to either love me or hate me. It's so hard. But the thing is; you love it. Because you want people like you guys, on Busted Open radio, talking about it the next day. Whether it's good or bad, I don't care, as long as you're talking about me, so be it.
