Greg Miller Talks Hosting WWE’s Newest Show, WWE This Is Awesome

WWE introduced earlier this week that its latest collection, WWE This Is Awesome, arrives on Peacock this Friday. Hosted by Greg Miller of Kinda Funny, every episode will recap a group of WWE‘s biggest moments, beginning with the “Most Awesome SummerSlam moments” in its first episode. Miller sat down with ComicBook forward of Friday’s premiere to clarify how the present got here collectively and what followers can anticipate.

“It’s funny, we posted the teaser trailer. I think it’s super hot, it’s super rad, my audience got excited, and a bunch of the WWE Universe got excited. But then I was on the SquaredCircle Reddit and somebody was like, ‘This trailer’s great, but I do not understand what this show is.’ And I was like, ‘You know what? That’s a great point.’ If you were intrigued, that’s good enough,” Miller stated. “The way I’ve been describing [it] is it’s kind of the WWE riff on Best Week Ever, but rather than talking about the week, we’re talking about SummerSlam, we’re talking about wrestling video games, we’re talking about the best entrances. And so the idea is that I introduce a theme. Then I walk you through as your narrator, as your on-camera host, as we go bit-to-bit, to go into the greatest SummerSlam matches.

“And so you then get to observe these matches, however you even have Superstars from the WWE popping in to say why that match is monumental, why it was their favourite entrance, why this was occurring. And then additionally the celebrities that you just’d anticipate which are at all times concerned with WWE, popping in to share reminiscences,” he continued, adding that it’s great for fans who have nostalgia towards classic WWE moments and for new fans trying to catch up on the company’s history.

Miller pointed out that he doesn’t get to personally pick all of the moments for each episode, which is why Undertaker vs. Undertaker from SummerSlam 1994 is (tragically) absent from Friday’s episode. He then discussed how the project came together thanks to his time at IGN and eventually working alongside Xavier Woods at various esports events. WWE officials spoke with him backstage at Survivor Series 2018 about possibly hosting shows and “4 brief years later” the first has arrived.

As for this 12 months’s SummerSlam, Miller had an uncommon choose for the match he desires to see probably the most — The Miz vs. Logan Paul.

“I used to be not excited to listen to Logan Paul was coming to WWE,” Miller said. “And then I watched that match (at WrestleMania) and I used to be like, ‘This was an entertaining match. This child has it. Like, this can be a enjoyable factor to go for.’ And then to have Miz flip on him there on the finish and take him out, it was like, ‘Okay, cool, I wish to see the payoff for it.’ So to be right here months later and really be within the enviornment, going to really see that match myself. I’m stoked about that. I actually do wish to see, they’ve nice chemistry as tag staff companions and clearly Miz to be so concerned with this coaching. What does that look now for singles competitors for one on one?”

WWE This Is Awesome premieres this Friday on Peacock. WWE’s SummerSlam 2022 takes place on Saturday at Nissan Stadium in Nashville and will air live on Peacock.
