Brian Fritz of AOL Fanhouse is featuring an interview with WWE Champion The Miz where he talks the initial reaction backstage to him winning the WWE Championship and how the company was able to bring the now famous “Angry Miz Girl” for Raw this past week.
“When I got backstage, the first thing that kind of happened was there were a bunch of people that gave me kind of a round of applause. It was a really cool moment, but then when I went by the merchandise guys they were like “did you see what happened?” I said “no, what happened?” They were like, some of the shots they got of the kids are instant classics and were literally on the computer YouTubing what happened and we got it. It was literally like five minutes and it was on YouTube and I saw the reactions. My first instant reaction was that was exactly what I wanted when I won the WWE Championship: shock, anger and awe of little children being so mad that I beat their little hero up, Randy Orton. It was fantastic.”
On how the WWE got in touch with the “Angry Miz Girl.”
“Well, the way that happened was the father saw me give out the address (to WWE), I gave the address out the next week and I showed the picture of her, and so it was one of those moments. It just kind of happened. The father called up WWE headquarters and was like, that’s my daughter and she would love to do something, and I literally went “bring her in!” She ended up winning a Slammy for “Best Crowd Reaction,” which honestly it was the best crowd reaction of the year. And me going out there and… how do you take something from a little kid? How do you get it? So you have to be extremely, excruciatingly nice. You have to be so nice to them that they trust you, and that’s basically how I went out there and took her Slammy away from her. I was so nice that she trusted me and I took her Slammy and I gave her her own face right back to her.”
