On January 22, 2010; I received a golden opportunity. WWE was coming to Cape Girardeau for a house show and because it's in the same television market that I work in, I took a shot at getting an interview with a Superstar. This is the only time I've gotten a "yes" to an in-person interview. When I found out the Miz is who I'd be interviewing I was elated.
This was months before My 1-2-3 Cents was even a thought. So when I interviewed the former United States Champion it was with a news camera and the whole purpose was for our newscast. I archived the footage and held on to it and later that year I added the entire interview to the My 1-2-3 Cents YouTube channel.
The Miz was great. He was not like his cocky, pompous persona on WWE TV. We chatted before and after the interview and he even took the time to take a pic with me even though he had to rush off for another round of interviews on the local radio stations. I am still impressed with how cool he was and we chatted like we'd known each other for years.
It was that conversation that inspired me to make a change in my look. The very next time I went for a haircut I opted for a faux hawk. Some nine years later I'm still sporting the look, however with more gray in it than ever before.
