E3: It’s a Real World/Road Rules challenge with The Miz

I got to meet up with WWE’s The Miz, however briefly, at E3 a few minutes ago, and I have to say, this f*cker is intense. I think I’m so used to interviewing relatively subdued game developers that I forgot what it was like to square off in the social squared circle against a subject who is arguably more impersonally explosive than myself. Combine that with the fact that we’re both from opposing MTV reality shows, and you have an inherent rivalry that’s bound to come to a head. In this case, that head is a situation that is nothing short of heartwarming.

We also talk about videogames for a bit, which is always a plus when you work for a videogame blog.

P.S. I’m going to be in a videogame too, Miz. I’m nipping at your tail, dawg.
