Happiness about not being a villain anymore 

George’s son The Miz gave an interview to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” where he talked about his wrestling, wife and his daughter. Miz started with his wrestling career, where he has been for many years. 

For the past 13 years, he has played as a bad guy in the wrestling who goes against the rule, does cheating on the match and becomes extremely rude with others. 

For that behavior, he has been hated by many people, and he was noted by the audience as a crook person. 

He also got many bad comments from the people, but that didn’t affect him at all. Then he did a show with his wife and that is Miz and Mrs show. 

He opened up that in his show, he is presenting himself as a good character, and because of that, he is getting good reactions from the people and getting love from them. 

He has a beautiful daughter, and he loves her a lot, and he thinks that she is the reason behind the new Miz. He also opened up that he had gone to the stores to buy new clothes so that he could wear them for that interview. 

His wife asked him to buy a new pair of shoes which was very costly, but he denied it because he knew that he would throw up that shoe in the rack after using it once. 

He came in that show with proper dress up with coat and pant which was an old one. He didn’t buy anything from the store. He also appreciated his wife sarcastically. 

After that, he talked about one of the matches that were about to happen with Dolph Ziggler, but he cleverly fixed the match of Dolph with Goldberg as his wife was pregnant.
