WWE LOCKS TOP STAR INTO NEW LONG-TERM CONTRACT

If you like The Miz and think he's awesome, we have some good news for you. 

The WWE Intercontinental champion has signed a new deal with World Wrestling Entertainment, according to multiple sources. 

The belief among those we've spoken with is that while the company was seeking to lock Miz up for a longer deal, the two sides finally agreed upon a four-year deal that would keep him tied to the company through 2022.

Miz, 37, parlayed his professed love of professional wrestling on MTV's The Real World and turned it into a career that sees him, today, as one of the most successful, longest-tenured members of the WWE locker room.

Miz was signed to a developmental contract after appearing on the $1 Million edition of Tough Enough and has built a career that has seen him become the second heel to successfully win a Wrestlemania main event (the first being Triple H) and starring in a series of WWE Studios movies, including taking over The Marine franchise, the latest of which will be released later this year.  Beyond that, he has continously improved his work inside the ring as well as his promo skills and has tirelessly worked to promote WWE.

Late last year, WWE announced plans for a new reality series starring Miz and his wife Maryse for the USA Network, titled Miz and Mrs. that will debut later this year with a six episode first season.
