The Miz likened the Cubs to fellow wrestler, John Cena, calling them both "lovable losers."
The Miz then called out the left fielder, who was sitting in the front row for the event. Soriano stood stoically as The Miz berated him, claiming Soriano would never win a World Series as long as he's playing baseball on Chicago's north side.
If Soriano disagreed, The Miz suggested, he should come in the ring and do something about it. Soriano declined, which prompted the Miz to fake a phone call from Cubs manager Lou Piniella.
"[Lou] said that you can't do it," said the Miz, "because he said he'd rather you get your yearly injury on the field rather than off."
Good call, fake Lou Piniella. Good call.
