Beyond the plentiful calls on social media for The Miz to be cast as Johnny Cage in the sequel to the newly released “Mortal Kombat” movie, WWE’s Most Must-See Superstar was also the subject of a new episode of WWE 24, WWE Network Documentaries’ long-running and critically acclaimed docuseries.
The episode — which covers The Miz’s entire career, from reality TV star to bona fide WWE legend-in-the-making — premiered yesterday on Peacock and immediately drew high praise from all corners of the WWE Universe.
Perhaps the loudest applause of all, however, came from a man who knows The Miz better than most: his onetime nemesis, John Cena.
The Cenation Leader, who famously challenged The Miz for the WWE Title in the main event of WrestleMania XXVII, didn’t mince his words in a tweet celebrating both the WWE 24 episode and The Miz’s awe-inspiring work ethic:
WATCH THIS NOW. @mikethemiz IS the definition of both passion and perseverance. Underrated only in the eyes of ignorance. THE hardest worker I know. An inspiration to me and proof that REAL success takes earning every inch. Awesome doesn’t NOT do you justice. #Respect https://t.co/C8nFAWYpyT

The Miz repaid the show of respect in a follow-up tweet, tipping his cap Cena’s way.
