From Reality TV Star to Fake Sports Star


By Noah Davis Comment

Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, formerly of Real World/Road Rules Challenge fame, shocked the world (we guess?) Monday night when he won the WWE championship on Monday Night Raw. This, of course, isn’t exactly newsworthy… but couldn’t you make the argument he’s the most successful of all the MTV reality stars? That’s an accomplishment in some sense.

We’ll let the announcers do our talking for us: “Ladies and gentlemen, the era of awesomeness has begun on Monday Night Raw.” Sure, that’s one way to put it.
