Years ago, Mike Mizanian was a reality television star with big dreams of becoming a WWE main eventer someday. A decade later, he’s the WWE Champion, and he’ll be making his return to reality television tonight.
The Miz will be in attendance for tonight’s Dancing with the Stars elimination show, presumably to support wrestler/entertainer Chris Jericho. The Miz and Jericho are two of the greatest heels of our generation, and having them on the same show tonight is, well, awesome. It’s rumored that Jericho will be returning to the ring as soon as his stay on Dancing comes to an end, so I’ll be curious to see if the Miz’s visit will serve as the jumping off point for an on-screen feud with Y2J, or if it’s just a regular, good-natured show of support.
The Miz & Jericho have exchanged insulting words on Twitter before. Jericho also recently offered this nugget in an interview with WWE.com:
“I watched Raw on Monday and felt like I was having an out of body experience. I was watching myself on live TV! Then I realized I hadn’t gotten that ugly and become that bad of a wrestler and realized I was actually watching the current WWE Champion, The Miz.”
Check out Chris Jericho & The Miz on Dancing with the Stars tonight, 9:00 EST on ABC, to see what transpires.
