First introduced to TV audiences as one of the seven strangers on The Real World: Back to New York, The Miz and his outspoken personality have helped him rise to Superstar status.
The Miz made his rounds on the reality TV circuit, including four seasons of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge Bravo’s Battle of the Network Reality Stars, and as a competitor on a special edition of Fear Factor. The Miz’s outgoing personality and charm made him a fan favorite.
"I'm looking forward to an 'Awesome' appearance next month at Portland Comic Con. It will be great to meet so many WWE and reality TV fans”, said The Miz.
John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO added, “Having The Miz continues our commitment to our fans to bring their favorite WWE Superstars to the Wizard World Tour. We are thrilled to have the ‘Most Must See WWE Superstar' in The Miz.”

The Miz competed on the fourth season of ‘Tough Enough’ in hopes of winning a contract to become a WWE Superstar. After finishing as the runner up, The Miz didn’t give up on his dream and continued to train once the ‘Tough Enough’ competition ended. He began his WWE career on Friday Night SmackDown.
