The Miz is the Hollywood A-Lister by his own rights as he has taken part in many outside projects while being with WWE over the past few years. Now he is set for one more project which will see him tying up his dancing shoes instead of dancing in the ring with wrestling superstars inside a WWE ring.
The veteran WWE Superstar is reportedly set to compete in the next season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. The Miz has been cast for the 30th season of ABC’s popular reality competition series, according to the reports of PWInsider. Filming for the season is scheduled to begin on Thursday, September 30.
“PWInsider.com can exclusively confirm that The Miz has been cast in the forthcoming season of ABC’s Dancing with The Stars.”
This won’t be the first time that The Miz will be participating in a reality game show competition, because he previously took part in MTV’s The Challenge as well. The Superstar from Monday Night Raw was absent from the latest bygone edition. He was announced to face John Morrison in the first match of their new feud, just one week after turning on his former tag team partner.
The Miz is up for a dancing gig
The Miz was not backstage for RAW and reports noted that sudden absence was related to him getting selected for the upcoming Dancing With The Stars gig. The official DWTS 30 cast members’ announcement should be done in the upcoming weeks. Singer and YouTube personality Jojo Siwa has already been confirmed as another celebrity participant for this dancing show.
With this news, The Miz joins Chris Jericho, Stacy Keibler, and WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella as those WWE Superstars who previously competed on DWTS while being affiliated with WWE.
The veteran with the real name of Mike Mizanin recently celebrated his 15th anniversary with the WWE. During his time with the company, The Miz went on to become a two-time WWE Champion, an eight-time WWE Intercontinental Champion, a two-time WWE United States Champion, a two-time SmackDown Tag Team Champion, a four-time WWE Tag Team Champion, and a two-time WWE World Tag Team Champion. He is also the first-ever two-time Grand Slam Champion, the twenty-fifth Triple Crown Champion, and the fifth Grand Slam Champion under the current format. (info – Wrestling INC)
