WWE News: Miz started his journey with an average score
The Miz did look excited to perform on the premiere episode of Dancing With the Stars. However, he didn’t have a perfect start to the show as he could only manage a score of 24 out of 40. The four judges present in the panel gave him 6 points each. Judge Bruno Tonioli praised Witney for “taming the Beast,” while The Miz was called “light on his feet, a well-oiled loving machine.”
Sharing the excitement of his first performance, The A-Lister posted a carousel of pictures on his official Instagram handle and with a long caption that read,
“Last night was Awesome. I’m still grinning ear to ear. If you would’ve told me 12 days ago when I first started this show that I would be praised by professional ballroom judges while millions watch at home for doing the Cha Cha I would’ve laughed and thought yeah right. My dance pro @witneycarson locked me in and took the time to teach as well as be incredibly patient with a guy who learned how to dance from watching music videos on MTV in the 80s. When I couldn’t get a move she would figure out different drills to make sure I got it. When I had questions and trust me I had a lot of them she answered them without a roll of the eye even when they were probably really dumb questions. When I got down on myself she remained positive. Witneys passion for her work really shines every time she’s on the dance floor and I’m incredibly thankful she’s my pro. Last night was fun but watching the other talent I know I have a lot of work to do. Next dance starts today. I can’t wait to see which I get and to what song.”

WWE News: When will The Miz return to WWE?
The Miz has taken a break from WWE to compete in Dancing With the Stars premiered on the ABC network. He appeared in the post-Summerslam edition of Monday Night Raw on August 23 and stabbed on the back of his best friend, John Morrison.
He was supposed to face Morrison next week, but he never appeared on WWE TV ever since then. There is no word on when The A-Lister would return to WWE, but if he gets eliminated from the show on Monday (the scheduled elimination for this season), we could see The Miz return to Monday Night Raw and straight away face his former friend John Morrison.
