Following tonight’s Home Run Derby, ESPN will air the 2018 All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game. Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, a former WWE champion and current SmackDown Live superstar, participated in the event.
The Ohio native connected with SB Nation last night, where he addressed a number of topics. He spoke about his rivalry with Daniel Bryan, the current state of the WWE, and of course baseball. “I’m going to be the first to knock [the ball] out of the stadium,” he explained, “people are going to be going for the ball, the ball’s going to sell for millions of dollars.”
The most interesting part of his red carpet interview came when he called out Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge.
I have several questions.
First, to what is The Miz challenging Judge exactly? Will they have a baseball skills competition? A home run derby? A wrestling match? Something tells me that Judge has the upper hand on all of those events. Sure, The Miz is a WWE Grand Slam Champion, but Judge has five inches and 61 pounds on him.
Now, The Miz has a reputation for doing whatever it takes to win. He could try to get The Miztourage back together, or perhaps recruit The Bludgeon Brothers into helping him. Judge has a friend of his own, though, and it’s someone with whom The Miz is quite familiar.
Who do you think would come out ahead? Let us know in the comment section! I’m all in on Judge across the board. I really hope this goes somewhere.
