The Miz Talks About Marine 3 & Who Helped Him Through WWE Developmental
January 7, 2021
WWE Intercontinental champion The Miz spoke to the Times Record News this week about his role in the upcoming WWE Studios film, The Marine 3: Homefront.
Here’s what The Miz said about playing a “good guy” in the movie while being a heel in WWE:
“I derived that character from a bunch of old movies … a lot of Paul Newman movies. I haven’t played a good guy in seven years.”
Miz credited Billy Kidman for keeping him going even when everyone else thought he should quit during his time in developmental.
“It was brutal just having people tell you you’re not going to make it. But that was the fuel,” Miz said. “One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever gotten was from Billy Kidman, who said, ‘Stick with it.’”
