The Miz won the WWE Title at Elimination Chamber, and he will be the first to admit that he never expected to win that title again. He certainly had no idea he would win that night.
During Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, The Miz revealed that he had no idea what he was doing when arriving for Elimination Chamber. He had already pulled himself from the Chamber match, and he had nothing to do. Little did he expect that he would leave the ThunderDome as WWE Champion.
“I had no idea. I walked in there and nobody was talking to me. Like, all the creative, like ‘is anyone going to tell me what the hell is going on?’ In the afternoon! So, I’m like ‘oh my god, is anybody going to talk to me?’ Then I go in and figure out what’s going on and I’m like, ‘okay this is it.’ Honestly, you never believe it’s gonna happen until you hear 1-2-3 you don’t believe it’s gonna happen.”
“By the way, this is against Drew McIntyre and if you’ve been watching WWE at all, Drew and Roman are on fire. They are incredibly hard to beat. They have grabbed the brass ring and basically said, ‘we’re untouchable, you’re not going to be able to touch us, you’re not going to be able to get this title off of us.’ It’s always difficult.”
The Miz said that “the fear is always that you’re going to cash in and lose.” Obviously, that didn’t happen at Elimination Chamber, but The Miz had no idea what his day held for him when he showed up at the pay-per-view without being booked for a match.
