Say what you will about The Miz, but the faux-hawked one has certainly moved through the ranks of WWE. After all, he did shed the stigma of reality TV show hack to become a WWE title-holder. For his first-ever cover story in our October issue, we let The Miz do all the talking, because, well, that’s what he does best. Inside, he rants on everything from the U.S. Championship to leather trench coats—so you’d be wise to listen. Elsewhere, Santino answers your fan letters, Wade Barrett sits down for an uncensored interview, and we list the manliest moments in WWE history. In short, this issue, as our cover star would say, is awesome.
