The Miz Talks: Miz is here to comment on Shane’s betrayal and their Mania match. Miz shows us video footage and then says he’s been consumed for 10-years, taking shortcuts to get to Mania, ruining relationships but his relationship with Shane meant something to him. It was all to make his father proud, and his father said he loved him and told him he was proud, Shane made that happen. People actually warned him about Shane and he didn’t believe it. Shane attacked him in front of his father and then threatened his father. He will never forget that night as he laid there helpless. Shane is rotten just like his father, and born the worst, not the best. You may own this company, but you don’t own me. He was always told he was average and made it to WWE and became a champion and must see. He did it on his own. You cannot deny his work ethic, hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard enough. He’s had to earn everything he has and he’s earned it. Shane only deserves an ass beating at Mania.
