THE rise of WWE Superstar Michael ‘The Miz’ Mizanin is a true story from rags to riches.
It’s been a long road for the Ohio native to go from college dropout to one of wrestling’s most recognizable and highest-paid stars.
A business major at Miami University, The Miz risked it all when he dropped out of college in 2001 to pursue a TV career.
More than two decades later, he was at the forefront of Wrestlemania 38 as the tag team partner of Logan Paul.
Miz and Paul squared off against Rey and Dominik Mysterio as the former YouTuber made his WWE bow in front of a huge Arlington crowd.
But away from the ring, family man Mizanin has certainly developed a lifestyle befitting wrestling allegiance.
He is one half of a WWE power couple, having married Diva Maryse in 2014, with the couple since having two children named Madison and Monroe.
A model, actress and reality TV star, Maryse appears in RAW with her husband and the couple first met on Diva Search in 2006.
The Miz has a base salary of around $1.2 million a year from his work with WWE, which has allowed the family to make a big living in California.
They own a stunning $12.5 million mansion in exclusive Westlake Village, just 45 miles from the hustle and bustle of downtown LA.
Purchased in 2019 for $6.4 million, the incredible structure features huge sweeping staircases, six bedrooms and a gold-hued home theater.
Relaxation is key off the ring and The Miz can certainly do that on the plush estate with 3 acres of land to enjoy.
Inside it has a games lounge with a snooker table and mini bowling, while outside there is a luxurious swimming pool and direct access to a neighboring golf course.
The couple are currently trying to make money after remodeling the English-style mansion featured in their documentary Miz & Mrs.
Now entering its third season in 2022, the popular show follows The Miz and Maryse as they balance their personal lives with a professional wrestling couple.
The Miz revealed: “We are beyond thrilled that we can continue to give fans a front row seat to our crazy lives.
“Season three is going to be AWESOME!”
Where the couple ends up next is up for debate, but rest assured they’ll travel to their new digs in style.
A petrolhead at heart, The Miz has a stunning collection of cars.
Viewers were in hysterics when the wrestler’s white Ferrari was towed away on an episode of Miz & Mrs and the stranded couple had to opt for a ride in a Mini Cooper to pick up the impounded supercar.
But it’s his customized Jeep Wrangler that will make other car enthusiasts purr.
Once the proud owner of a Hummer H2, The Miz had to “downgrade” to the Jeeper because the Hummer was just too big for the streets of LA.
Equipped with tuned suspension, Heise LED lighting and a powerful custom exhaust, the all-black Jeep is certainly an impressive vehicle.
The Miz revealed to Dub Magazine that it was a glorious all-rounder and an upgrade from its previous purchase, a beautiful gray Lambo-door Audi R8.
He said: “You can’t really go shopping in an R8.
“My buddy bought a Jeep Wrangler.
“It was raised, it had wheels, and as soon as he took me for a ride, I was like, ‘You know what, I need to get one.'”
The Miz’s car collection, which also includes a luxurious Mercedes-Benz S550 and his now-restored Ferrari, has real style.
And he even shared snaps of Maryse posing next to a Bugatti Veyron and a posh Bentley Continental.
But for all their lavish lives, The Miz and Maryse are very family-oriented at heart.
And no home – no matter the size – would be complete without pets.
Miz & Mrs gave fans a glimpse into the lives of dog trio Luna, Pumpkin and Mocha, and cat Bon Matin also called their massive LA digs home.
But tragedy struck in July 2021 when the couple revealed Mocha had passed away.
A statement said: “Even though you’re gone, your memory lives on and the love we hold in our hearts will never go away.
“We love you. Rest in peace our sweet beautiful mocha.”
As the only married couple to ever team up at Wrestlemania, The Miz will certainly have no nerves trying to build on his win at Wrestlemania 38.
He made it into week seven of Dancing With The Stars last year and is hoping to get back on his toes with Logan Paul, his new criminal ring partner.
