‘The Schomo’ was interviewing The Miz ahead of WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles, and that’s when he asked The Miz if he could recall the physical altercation at The Fear Factor. The WWE star narrated, I remember that vividly to this day… I was doing celebrity Fear Factor. It was I believe ‘Amazing Race’ or it was like ‘Real-World Amazing Race Survivor’ and I think there’s another one but I remember all of a sudden out of nowhere, this guy, think Jonny Fairplay, who’s having fun like it was all fun and just and then Joe was just like ‘you can’t do that’ and then the guy was like ‘you can’t tell me what to do’.” 

He continued, “Joe doesn’t like that and I literally thought Joe was going to kill him was like ‘Oh my God Joe’s gonna put this guy down real fast and this is not what we want right here right now’. So I tried to separate them as much as I could but it was interesting, it got interesting.
