The WWE Superstar Shake-up recently changed the landscape of WWE. Miz and Maryse have been one of the top acts on SmackDown Live since last summer, but now they’re on Raw and they have a whole new crop of stars to feud with.

The Miz recently spoke to IGN to promote his new movie “The Marine 5” and he talked a little bit about what it was like to return to Raw.

“RAW’s the flagship show and obviously the flagship show needed the ratings. It needed the star power of Miz and Maryse. They brought over the “It Couple” and now it’s the show to watch. With SmackDown Live, we made it must-see. Every week, people would tune in wondering what Miz and Maryse would do now, but now they’re doing the same exact thing with Monday Night RAW.”

At WrestleMania 33 a few weeks ago, The Miz and Maryse teamed up to take on Nikki Bella and John Cena. Miz received a favorable reaction from the fans in attendance at Camping World Stadium, and the former Intercontinental Champion says that he had no idea what to do when they started cheering him.

“Weird. You know, I had no idea what to do. I’ve never had that experience of people cheering me. I was like “I don’t even understand what’s happening right now. They’re cheering me.” So I just decided to accept it and have fun with it and go with it. And my wife and I had such an amazing time. Not only did we get to walk the aisle together, like we always do now in WWE, not only did we get to go in the ring, but we got to wrestle in the ring together and I thought that was really really cool.”
