Hall of Famer Ric Flair has been talking about a former WWE Champion who he feels never complains no matter what he is asked to do.
16-Time World Champion Flair has seen all types of characters and attitudes backstage across his illustrious career so when he praises a Superstar for being “wonderful” and “so damn respectful” fans will take note.
Ric Flair has shared his feelings on The Miz after seeing how the former reality tv star was bullied after joining WWE, and called him “a great kid”.
Mike “The Miz” Mizanin gained fame after appearing on MTV show The Real World before entering the fourth season of WWE’s Tough Enough. Despite finishing as the runner-up, The Miz was offered a developmental contract and began what has been a hugely successful career.
The Miz is the first ever Two-Time Grand Slam Champion in WWE and Flair wanted to tell fans how highly he rates the Hollywood Star.
The Nature Boy was discussing The Miz on the This Last Weekend podcast, and called out the bullying that took place in WWE before highlighting the level of respect The Miz has for WWE and sports entertainment.
“He’s a great kid, man. He’s a guy that really cares for the business, man. And they s**t on him when he started … They gave him a tough time. That’s b******t. The guys that bully, I got no time for that. But he’s a wonderful kid, and he’s made the most of it. And I’m going to tell you the truth. Whatever they hand him, he makes work.”
“It’s a gift. Whatever they hand him, he goes. He doesn’t complain. If he does, I’m not aware of it. And so damn respectful. He’s a great kid.”
