Ultimate Pro Wrestling
Michael Gregory "Mike" Mizanin (born October 8, 1980) is an American professional wrestler, reality television star, and actor. He is signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name The Miz.
Mizanin first gained fame as a cast member on MTV's The Real World: Back to New York, which first aired in 2001, and its spinoff series, Real World/Road Rules Challenge. He later entered the fourth season of Tough Enough, a televised competition which awarded the winner a WWE contract, and became the first runner-up. Mizanin trained and wrestled in independent/developmental territories Ultimate Pro Wrestling (UPW), Deep South Wrestling (DSW), and Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) prior to appearing in WWE.
In 2006, Mizanin became host of the annual WWE Diva Search competition and began wrestling on the main roster. Mizanin was drafted to the ECW brand in 2007, where he formed a successful partnership with John Morrison, winning the WWE Tag Team Championship, World Tag Team Championship, and the 2008 Tag Team of the Year Slammy Award. After being drafted to Raw in 2009, he won the United States Championship twice, the unified tag team titles with Big Show and the Raw Money in the Bank ladder match for a guaranteed WWE Championship match. He cashed it in to win the WWE Championship in November 2010 and went on to hold for six months, including a successful defense against John Cena in the main event of 2011's WrestleMania XXVII. That year, he was ranked number one on Pro Wrestling Illustrated's annual PWI 500 list. Mizanin largely dropped out of world title contention after 2011, and the period of 2012 to 2016 has been marked by him winning the Intercontinental Championship six times, which made him the 25th Triple Crown Champion in company history and the 5th Grand Slam Champion.
