Bobby Lashley may have defeated The Miz to win the WWE Championship on Monday Night Raw this week, but the new champion was quick to defend The A-Lister during a recent interview.
Speaking with Corey Graves on the After The Bell podcast, Bobby Lashley said that The Miz is “incredible”, noting that people that don’t like The Miz must just be jealous of him:
“I enjoyed everything. I’m never a person to put down on anybody, but I think Miz is incredible,”
“No one is better at it, and he’s – everything about it. I mean there were some parts here where we had to add a little extra time, Miz just grabbed the mic and he just starts going. He was just playing it to the character so much – and he gets it. And that’s why he’s so successful. And they asked me in an interview last week, they were like, ‘You know some people have doubts about The Miz being the champion, this that and the other.’ Well, if they don’t like Miz, they’re probably jealous. If you read any of the reports online, I think Miz just bought a $6-7 million dollar house, Maryse is gorgeous, he has a great family, he has a reality show, a game show, he’s doing movies. He’s the only two-time triple crowner. I’ll take any one of those. If you don’t like Miz, you have a little bit of jealousy in you. I’m a fan of The Miz.”
It is believed that Bobby Lashley will be defending the WWE Championship at WrestleMania against Drew McIntyre, although some have speculated that WWE could add Brock Lesnar into that match and make it a three-way.
