WWE RAW star John Morrison, who returned to the business in 2020 after an eight-year absence, spoke with Corey Graves on a recent episode of WWE’s After The Bell Podcast about his friendship with The Miz and how they remained friends even after he left the company.
John Morrison said:
“I’ll begin by discussing The Miz in the past tense.” “In the world of pro wrestling, there are people you want to slap the potato chips off the table with, and there’s certain people who become really close friends. When I initially met The Miz, I assumed he was a regular [expletive] like the rest of us. I didn’t get a chance to chat to him when we initially started tagging together, but when we did our first loop of live events together and were in the car talking, I was like – when he’s just with you and you’re talking, he’s a really fantastic guy. He is dependable. He has the same dreams and hopes as the rest of us, and he loves wrestling.”
“He’s funny, but he thinks everything I say is funny, which gives me confidence. It turned out to evolve and become more enjoyable than I had anticipated. We were more than just tag team partners and coworkers when I was in his wedding and he was in mine. We grew to be true friends. It makes everything better when you’re working with someone you enjoy being around, and you’re on the same page and have chemistry on screen. There are several tag teams out there, such as The Usos and The New Day. They aren’t three men who despise each other and go to work every day. You can tell the New Day are closest friends, and that’s how I felt working with Miz.”
After that, John Morrison talked about how he and The Miz would usually come up with the most funny storylines.
John Morrison said:
“Usually, between The Miz and me, I’m the one that comes up with the most bizarre ideas.” “’John, that’s too dumb,’ Miz says. I was hoping to do one of those Hollywood films like “The Rise and Fall of Mandy’s Hair” as we pushed through Mandy Rose’s hair. The struggles and tribulations are clearly depicted, as if it were a 20-minute docu-drama about Mandy’s hair. And because it wouldn’t fit, we made a shorter version.”
