The Miz Addresses Recent WWE Releases

The Miz has addressed WWE’s recent waves of releases, opening up about John Morrison’s departure from the company.

John Morrison (John Hennigan) was one of over 80 names released from their WWE contract in 2021. Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, The Miz admitted that he found it tough when his former tag team partner was let go.

Believing that he must keep upping his game, The Miz said:

“It’s always tough when your friends and your colleagues get released. But you always wish for the best for them and you just, you do what you do. You just keep going, you know? Like my buddy John Morrison, he got released.

“He was my tag team partner for a very long time and when he got released, I was like, ‘ah man’, you know? But I know John and I know the type of person he is and I know he’ll succeed in everything that he does, right? And so, you always wish the best for them.

“And, for me in WWE, like, when you go to Monday Night RAW, ‘alright. What am I doing? How do I make this something that the live audience who paid money for their seats can get something out of this? Can really sink their teeth into, you know, and have a memory?’

“Like whenever I see a dad with their son, or a mom with their son or daughter, you know, you want to create a moment for them. So when 10 years down the line, ‘hey remember the time we went to that WWE event and The Miz did this? Or this superstar did this?’ That’s what you’re always looking to create.

“So yeah, am I sad when people get released and my buddies go somewhere, somewhere else, or do something else? Of course. But it’s my job as a WWE Superstar to keep elevating myself and keeping myself at a certain level to where I can do the best I possibly can for the fans out there.”

AJ Styles is definitely a fan of The Miz’ work in WWE, recently calling the former WWE Champion the best heel in the business.
