The Miz and his revelation on the podcast “Uncool with Alexa Bliss”

American professional wrestler, The Miz appeared on the debut episode of the podcast “Uncool with Alexa Bliss”. He spoke about his career, life before he entered wrestling, and his horrible experience on his first date.  The Miz had done a lot of self-improvement from his young days to becoming a WWE superstar.

He said:

“When I figured out what I wanted, I said, ok, I want to be a WWE Superstar. I’m 6 foot nothing. I’m 200 and nothing pounds. I am not the quintessential WWE Superstar, especially back then. Back then, it was 6 ft 7in, 300 pounds of pure solid muscle. What are the things I can get? What are the tools I can get for myself that can get me to where I need to be. I said I need a nutritionist. I didn’t have money by the way. I literally found a guy that would write me meal plans for $100 a month.”

More about The Miz’s odd jobs before wrestling

“I could figure out how to motivate an audience and how to guide an audience to figure that out. I would find the tools that would get me to where I need to be.”
