Monday’s episode was a special tribute to rock band Queen, The Miz
WWE superstar Mike ‘The Miz’ Mizanin and his dancing partner pro Witney Carson becomes the latest celebrity couple to get eliminated from Dancing With the Stars. The season 30 episode aired on Monday and was dedicated to legendary rock band Queen.
Another duo who also landed on the bottom but was saved by judges were JoJo Siwa and pro Jenna Johnson.
The Miz on his elimination
Miz was the fourth pro wrestler to join the highly competitive show. Previously, fellow WWE wrestlers Nikki Bella, Stacy Keibler, and Chris Jericho had taken part. Out of all the wrestlers, Kiebler was the one who gave the best performance and came at third place in the show’s second season.
Miz pointed out that he was at a disadvantage since the competition weighed heavily on fan voting. For those who are not familiar with his WWE career, the Miz is usually a ‘heel,’ meaning a bad guy, and fans always boo the heels. Miz admitted that after playing the most egotistical, arrogant jerk in the WWE for 16 years, it will be hard for people to vote for him. His character always tried to win by cheating.
He did get to show the audiences his real side in his USA Network reality show Miz & Mrs which he presents with his wife, former WWE diva Maryse. Through the show, the star was able to show how he was at home, as a husband and father.
Return to WWE
Due to his DWTS stint, the wrestler was away from the world of pro wrestling. And now that he’s been eliminated, we might be seeing him very soon in the show.
The Miz still gave out some memorable performances, such as the time he dressed up as Scar from The Lion King, Pinhead from the Hellraiser movies, and the Genie from Aladdin.
