Watch a preview of The Miz’s ‘H8R’ episode in which he gives an unsuspecting fan the ultimate smackdown!
If you’ve ever seen The Miz on an episode of WWE’s Monday Night Raw, you probably already know how much he loves to be hated. It pretty much fuels his very being. So it’s no surprise he agreed to appear on tonight’s episode of The CW’s H8R, during which he’ll come face-to-face with a real-life hater. What is surprising, he tells HollywoodLife.com, is the “awesome” way he handles with his victim.
“What I do to my hater is better than anything anyone has done on the show so far,” he reveals. “Most people just talk about who they are, but I try to make my hater look — and act — exactly like me. One of the biggest forms of redemption is basically making a person that hates you become you.”
Speaking of redemption and haters, I couldn’t talk to The Miz without asking about his current situation with the WWE. He may have been fired by COO Triple H, but now that Triple H’s job appears to be going south, fans are wondering if it will lead to The Miz’s return to Raw.
“Time will tell,” The Miz says, cryptically. “Who knows what will ever happen in the WWE? As long as Triple-H is the COO, though, I don’t want to come back.
For now, the much-hated former WWE supertsar is content just watching TV — including his episode of H8R, which airs at 8 p.m. tonight on The CW — and relaxing on his couch, which he calls his ultimate vacation.
“I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do,” he says. “I haven’t had days off in the WWE in five years, and this is my greatest moment ever. My dad asks me why I never go on vacation, and I tell him that all I want to do for a vacation is sit on my couch.”
