Ex 'Real World' Star

Wins WWE World Championship

11/23/2010 11:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mike Mizanin -- a former reality star from "Real World: Season 10" -- was officially crowned as the heavyweight champion of the WWE last night ... after a huge surprise upset victory over Randy Orton.

"The Miz" -- who came up with his own nickname during the MTV show back in 2001 -- began wrestling with the WWE back in 2004.

Miz ain't the only ex-Real Worlder having a huge year -- Sean Duffy from Season 6 won a seat in Congress earlier this month.

Maybe there's still hope for Puck ...

Y'all are killing me. Hasn't the WWE always been fake?!?!? Why the surprise?? Anyway, for what it's worth I'm happy for him. I watched that season of the Real World (back when that wasn't a joke also) and he's finally realized his dreams. Good for him.

"You People have no right to say anything about me or talk down about all that I've accomplished. I took all your negativity and instead of getting bitter I got better and now I've accomplished more than all you pathetic people ever will in your entire lives. BECAUSE I'M THE MIZ AND I'M.....AWESOME!!!!!!"

Guys, I know The Miz's writing style from his blogs, and I'm somewhat certain the above quote is actually from The Miz. Congrats on your title win, Miz.

Advice: a gradually humbled champion is the key to a successful face turn.

Miz can actually manage to hold on to the belt considering how sneaky he is.. he's always getting himself into some form of turmoil.. this spells out great entertainment he's freaking hilarious when he wins... and loses.. lol..( remember hell in the cell?) you Tapped OUT!..

anyways.. i plan to shell out another grand for platinum seating on mar. 7th... hope to see you there..:)

the kid if freaking awesome just from the hate he attracts and ya know you gotta love him for that.. Miz its your world now..

the more and more i see these "new generations/legacies" begin the more and more i want to go for the "tough enough tryouts".

miz i think you remember that.

It's great to see someone like the Miz as champion. He obviously has a passion for wrestling as even back when he was on The Real World he talked about being a pro wrestler. He has worked hard and seems to be a real class act. He deserves the title and now we just need to see where he goes from here. Congrats Miz!

To all the nerds on here pointing out the fact that wrestling is scripted. Sorry to break it to you but Star Wars, Avatar, and Harry Potter are fake too

Wrestling has gone to hell. 80's Hogan says Eat your vitamins, Say your prays and Be true to yourself.
The fans love:
Stone cold: Drink beer, cuss, fight your boss
RVD: Smoke Pot
Ken Anderson: Scream *******
Jeff Hardy : Currently going to court for Heroin and other drugs ( recent bad guy turn makes people hate him)
Kurt Angle: Be a Liar ( say you'll leave then come back)
John Cena: Liar ( who goes to work the day after being fired?)

Mike "The Miz" Mizzani has put in the time and effort to get where he has gotten. Good job Mike. Ignore the fat slobs on teh computers hating on you, let them enjoy the poor lifestyles

THIS IS FOR ANYBODY OUT THERE THAT SAY PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING IS JUST ENTERTAINMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

step in the ring just once climb all 3 ropes and throw yourself from the top turnbuckle and land flat on your back!!!!!!!

then come back (if you can make it back) and tell the world if PRO WRESTLING is "fake"............. that it is scripted?
yes w/o a doubt,but the effort that we put in the ring, not only during every match but also during training, is not!!!!

and the same credits yall give to baseball players, football players,basketball players etc...etc..etc
should also be given to pro wrestlers because unlike any of the sport mentioned above, in pro wrestling we put our body at risk 99% more than any other sport, and wrestling is a year round sport,, meaning that there is no offseason unles you are unemployed or seriously injured,so all you IGNORANT weasels out there that hate wrestling because its not "up to par" w/ your standards please show some support to the industry even if you dont believe in the sport, because its for a reason and one reason only that every monday nights and every friday night and every sunday (ppv)event is w/ full attendance,the reason is b/cause WRESTLING IS LIFE! and its here to stay!

That is when you know the WWE has gone to hell in a hand-basket. Their best star (John Cena) gets fired and this MTV mental rehabilitation case gets the belt. Next thing you know Snooki will become president of the USA.
