The Miz teamed up with R-Truth to take on John Cena and The Rock at Survivor Series 2011. He opened up about the experience of sharing the ring with him.

“It’s kind of crazy, I did get in the ring with Rock and feel the energy and the electricity… The Rock says he’s ‘the most electrifying man in sports-entertainment’ – that’s true… When you get in the ring with him and you hear the audience, there’s an electricity that literally gives you goosebumps. There’s nothing quite like it.”

Will The Miz share the same status as The Brahma Bull?

The Rock and The Miz have had their difficulties in the company. However, both of them have similarities that cannot be overlooked.

The Brahma Bull reached stardom during WWE’s Attitude Era. When he left WWE to pursue other interests, it left a void in the company.

Of course, WWE acted fast and ensured the audience remains captivated by making John Cena the top dog at WrestleMania 27. This is relevant because at the same time, The Miz got involved with both Superstars and paved his path towards WWE fame.

It might take him time to reach The Rock’s superstardom; however, there’s a higher chance he will definitely make it to the top.
