The Miz says reports about his injury are greatly exaggerated.
The Miz recently spoke with Sports Illustrated and commented on his in-ring status, which is currently up in the air due to a reported torn ACL. Miz says he’s seen the reports and isn’t sure where the information is coming, but he doesn’t plan on missing that much time at all.
“As far as I’m concerned, everyone keeps asking me how I’m feeling, and I feel like a million bucks—and I’m going to be on WWE TV every week like I always am.”
The Miz returned to RAW last week, but it came in a non-contact role as host of Miz TV. While he didn’t specifically address when the in-ring return might happen, he said he has no plans of missing nine months of ring time and fans can expect to see him on TV every week.
“I’ll be out for a little bit of time. I’ve seen that I’ll be out nine months. I don’t plan on being out nine months. I was on TV last Monday,” Miz said, “and I’m going to be on TV every week.
Miz continued, saying he’s not sure when he’ll wrestle again but he’s just working on getting back to 100% so his next match is sooner than later.
“We always tell children not to try what we do at home because it’s a very dangerous sport, and I’m a person that had never been injured in a WWE ring for my entire career. I had a match, and did I get injured? Yes, the answer is yes, I did get injured. How long will I be out? To be completely honest, I don’t even know that. I’m just working on physical therapy, getting everything back to 100% so I can give the audience exactly what they want.”
