During the interview on the MackMania podcast, The Miz said, “Right in the beginning, I was terrible, like horrible. I still look at matches and go, ‘You’re terrible, you’re horrible.’ But you work at it, and I like to think that where my talent lacks, my hard work picks up. So, I’ll outwork everybody to where I’ll beat your talent because you know what? You’re not working hard enough.”

“That’s where I stand, but Logan is one of those people who picks something up right off the bat. I would show him something and literally, he would get it right away. That usually takes practice and time. He is definitely one of the best natural talents I’ve ever seen,” The A-Lister added. (H/T: 411 Mania)
