Trash talk can be tricky unless you're WWE superstar The Miz.
The seven-time Intercontinental Champion, whose real name is Mike Mizanin, showed us how it's done during the Television Critics Association's winter press tour. In the stellar video above, Miz goes in on fellow WWE superstar Roman Reigns — the man who ended his 170-day title reign back in November — and impresses his wife, former WWE Divas Champion Maryse.
Miz and Reigns will again face off for the Intercontinental Title this Monday during Raw's 25th-anniversary show, and if we're going by Miz's perfectly executed promo, he's about to become champion for the eighth time.
"It is the main event, the marquee match. Roman Reins versus The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship," an infectiously hyped up Miz explains. "A championship that I have made prestigious and relevant and the championship that I will get back for the eighth time. I will win the Intercontinental Championship for the eighth time on the 25th Anniversary of Monday Night Raw because I'm awesome!"
Next week, WWE will celebrate Raw's 25th anniversary with a packed lineup of guest appearances from the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Jim Ross, Chris Jericho, Trish Stratus, Ric Flair, The Dudley Boys, Jaqueline, Scott Hall, Lilian Garcia, The Undertaker and more. If you're a member of the Miztourage, however, the must-see TV moment will be The Miz trying to win the Intercontinental Title for the eighth time.
Watch it all go down when the 25th anniversary of WWE Monday Night Raw airs Monday, Jan. 22 beginning at 8/7 on USA Network.
