As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Bobby Lashley defeated The Miz in a singles match to finally become the WWE Champion, ending his 17-year long journey.
While speaking on After The Bell with Corey Graves, Bobby Lashley stated that The Miz is a great heel and that he is incredible.
“I enjoyed everything. I’m never a person to put down on anybody, but I think Miz is incredible,”
Graves said that The Miz is one of the most underrated Superstars in WWE, explaining that The Miz’s character requires him to be “obnoxious and annoying” and that his role in WWE is to get “beat up”
Lashley then said that if someone doesn’t like the Miz, then they are jealous of him.
“No one is better at it, and he’s – everything about it. I mean there were some parts here where we had to add a little extra time, Miz just grabbed the mic and he just starts going. He was just playing it to the character so much – and he gets it. And that’s why he’s so successful. And they asked me in an interview last week, they were like, ‘You know some people have doubts about The Miz being the champion, this that and the other.’ Well, if they don’t like Miz, they’re probably jealous. If you read any of the reports online, I think Miz just bought a $6-7 million dollar house, Maryse is gorgeous, he has a great family, he has a reality show, a game show, he’s doing movies. He’s the only two-time triple crowner. I’ll take any one of those. If you don’t like Miz, you have a little bit of jealousy in you. I’m a fan of The Miz.”
Bobby Lashley is currently celebrating his WWE Championship win. It is likely he will be feuding with former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre, which will culminate in a match at WrestleMania 37.
