The richest man in modern history better watch his back.
WWE superstar "The Miz" challenged Amazon's Jeff Bezos to a fight in the ring during an interview with Cheddar on Wednesday ー and it's all his wife's fault.
"I want to fight Bezos because my wife buys so [many] boxes from Amazon each and every day," The Miz said of fellow WWE star Maryse. "My recycling bin is out the roof, I have three different recycling bins all filled with Amazon boxes."
Fortunately, Bezos is willing to pay for protection. According to an SEC filing, Amazon spent $1.6 million on its CEO's security detail in 2016, accounting for almost all of Bezos's $1.68 million salary for the year.
Maryse ardently defended the e-commerce giant, explaining it's a lot easier to use her Prime account than ask her husband to run errands. So, if The Miz ever does come to blows with the CEO, valued at $151 billion, Maryse may not be in his corner.
"I will be on the side of your opponent, because I absolutely love Amazon," Maryse said. "If it wasn't for them, I don't think I could survive."
Bezos isn't the only major figure The Miz has challenged this week . He called out New York Yankees All-Star Aaron Judge on the red carpet at the MLB's All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game. That same night, The Miz won MVP of the event, so his smack talk will likely continue.
