As previously noted, The Miz was reportedly injured during his lumberjack match against Damian Priest at the WWE Wrestlemania Backlash PPV.
In an interview with Forbes.com, The Miz addressed the injury reports…
“Just look at all the news out there. They must be right (about my injury), right? They’re reporting on it, telling you exactly what’s going on. They must know! They must be geniuses! I was looking on Twitter, and then I was looking on the news sites that were talking about my injury, and I’m like ‘first off, how do they know?’ Because I’ve never said anything and they’re saying things wrong, like all wrong. And it’s annoying, I guess you can say, because I heard I was out nine months. I don’t expect to be out nine months. As a matter of fact, I was on Monday Night Raw last week and I plan on being on Monday Night Raw next week. Now, when will I have a real match? I don’t know. That’s for the doctors to decide and figure out. But I feel like a million bucks, and the way my headspace is, I don’t like to be gone for long.”
The Miz made his unlikely return to WWE Raw this past week after being swarmed by zombies during his last appearance at WrestleMania Backlash in a polarizing match. The Zombie Lumberjack Match between The Miz and Damian Priest was done in conjunction with WWE’s partnership with Zack Snyder film Army of the Dead, a partnership where the promotion reportedly earned a seven-figure payday.
