5. Former WWE Wrestlers On Why The Miz Had Backstage Heat About A Decade Ago, Hulk Hogan Comments On Kevin Owens Attacking Mr. McMahon
– During a recent edition of the WrestlingInc podcast, former WWE wrestlers Mr. Kennedy and Shawn Daivari talked about The Miz’s backstage heat in WWE about a decade ago. Below is what they had to say about it:
Mr. Kennedy: “When we were there, The Miz had so much heat, and it was for the fact that he wasn’t involved in wrestling. He didn’t come up and work independents or territories and then he gets handed this thing. Plus, he wasn’t hard to get along with, but his personality wasn’t that big, he was just shy and quiet in the back. And then everything anybody would do to him he would sell hit, so he just got tons and tons of heat. But here we are, 10 years later, he’s done alright for himself.”
Shawn Daivari: “He was a guy like Muhammad Hassan where I understood why people were upset with him, but I never really saw him do anything that would warrant that.
The Miz was an easy target because he took it on the chin, didn’t really fight back. Not that you should fight back all the time, but sometimes you should.”
– As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, Kevin Owens attacked Mr. McMahon in the main event segment of the show. Below is what WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan tweeted about this:
