The Miz is now a WWE veteran, but as we all know, every WWE veteran has to start somewhere. Mike Mizanin made the jump from reality TV star to WWE Superstar, but in order to make it to the big time he had to go through WWE developmental just like everyone else.

It took quite a while for Mizanin to be accepted among his peers due to his status as a reality TV star, but during a recent appearance on X-Pac’s 12360 show former WWE star MVP revealed that he respects The Miz because he never complained.

“I think it’s weird…umm. I’ll give you an example of the Miz. Very successful, very talented has reached of the highest highs, and I have the upmost respect for him. Cause when we were in developmental down in deep south, you had guys that been around, been a few places who were moaning and complaining about the training. I never heard Mike Mizanin complain not once. Ever. He ran the miles, the squats, the bumps never complained about anything.”

Say what you want about The Miz, he’s certainly not the best wrestler on the WWE roster, but his work ethic has paid off as he’s headlined WrestleMania and walked out of the big event with the WWE Title.

Nowadays Miz is holding it down in the mid-card on SmackDown Live, and many fans would agree that he’s never been better.
