WWE Superstar The Miz is featured in the NFL on Fox promotional video for tonight’s Super Bowl and WrestleMania 39.
The Super Bowl, or as some wrestling fans would say, the “WrestleMania of Football,” airs tonight at State Farm Stadium in Arizona. The Kansas City Chiefs will battle the Philadelphia Eagles for the championship.
The NFL on Fox commercial also featured celebrities such as Machine Gun Kelly, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Paul Walter Hauser. During the video, The Miz noted that a lot of people would be calling him from work and claimed that he would be joining them.
“The Super Bowl is such a great party that over 16 million people are going to call in sick tomorrow and I’m going to be there with them,” The Miz said. [00:47- 00:55]
The former WWE Champion was asked if he was scheduled for a match tomorrow on RAW, and the A-Lister was confused by the question.
“I said I was sick! Come on!” shouted The Miz. [00:56- 00:59]
Former WWE writer Vince Russo criticizes Miz’s card
Industry veteran Vince Russo recently criticized The Miz’s booking for the promotion.
The A-Lister lost to Rick Boogs last week and had a very poor showing in the Men’s Royal Rumble match. He entered the match at number 3 and didn’t even last five minutes before being eliminated by Sheamus. He was the first superstar eliminated in the match.
Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Legion of RAW Russo questioned WWE’s booking of The Miz and wondered why they weren’t taking advantage of him.
“What are they doing with The Miz? I swear to God, I understand the Miz’s point of view, ‘Yeah bro, I’m gonna show up every day, you can do whatever you want to me, and I’m just gonna go and cash my check,’ I get that part of it. what I don’t understand is why are they doing this to him?” Vince Russo said. [59:22-59:49]
The Miz is scheduled to face Rick Boogs tomorrow night on RAW in a rematch. It will be interesting to see if a win tomorrow night can get the 42-year-old back on track as WrestleMania 39 is just around the corner.
