Former WWE creative writer Matt McCarthy revealed that The Miz bought the entire creative team dinner due to not being allowed to attend the after party during WrestleMania 28. The Miz' now wife, Maryse, also was not allowed to attend the after party and bought her dinner.
"Maryse wasn't working with the company and she wasn't allowed in the (WM) afterparty, so Miz was like I'm not going in. When he found out the writers weren't allowed in, he bought us dinner. That's the kind of guy he is."
He also spoke about the "creative has nothing for you".
"Imagine if Vince walked into the writers' room and asks, 'What have you got Cody and Drew?' And we say, 'We can't think of anything.' Then Vince says, 'Okay, that's good enough for me!' And fires them."
