Former WWE Champion The Miz recently opened up to The Mirror regarding the lack of respect he’s recieved since joining WWE due to his past reality TV appearances, most notably The Real World New York in 2001. Check out his comments below.

No Respect Because Of MTV’s Real World:

“I will never get the respect I deserve, because I was on a reality show. Whenever you’re on a reality show, you’re the scum of the earth. You have no talent, you’re a nothing and you deserve nothing. That’s the way I’ve been brought up and how I feel people look at reality [television]. Do I look at it that way? Absolutely not; I thank my lucky stars I was on a show like The Real World on MTV and I thank them for putting me on that show because it gave me the ability to say ‘I can do anything I want with my life.'”

 Miz & Mrs.:

“So I have always had that chip on my shoulder and always will. Do I think I’ll ever get the respect I deserve? No. But especially now I’m on my own reality show, and I really don’t like to call it a reality show, I like to call it a docu-series because it documents when it’s like to be first-time parents in the entertainment industry. I like to think it’s a different type of show, but now that I have that, it puts even more ammo against me. But, maybe now, people will look at me and say ‘this guy can lead a show.'”

Respect Level Now:

“If people start switching and start respecting me, I’ll find a new drive and a new fire, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. Are my peers starting to respect me? I think they’re starting to see my value and that they see I work hard. How many other people are doing this media interview for the UK? Probably not many. And I’ve problem spoken to you all. It’s just the thing that I am always doing media, always working and always going non stop, because I believe that hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard enough.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
