The Miz made his Dancing with the Stars Debut with his pro dancing partner Witney Carson, and there's a chance the duo could win the competition. The WWE Superstar and Carson danced the Cha Cha to the BTS song "Butter" and earned a score of 24 out of 40. It's not the highest score of the night, but The Miz and Carson should be able to move on to the next round.
"Last night was Awesome," The Miz wrote in an Instagram post. "I'm still grinning ear to ear. If you would've told me 12 days ago when I first started this show that I would be praised by professional ballroom judges while millions watch at home for doing the Cha Cha I would've laughed and thought yeah right. My dance pro [Witney Carson] locked me in and took the time to teach as well as be incredibly patient with a guy who learned how to dance from watching music videos on MTV in the 80s. When I couldn't get a move she would figure out different drills to make sure I got it." Here's a look at fans reacting to The Miz's Dancing with the Stars performance.

The Miz should win DWTS! Nobody entertains like he does.— Action Herbino (@ActionHerbino) September 21, 2021
The Miz did so good 😭😭😭 it was terrible dancing but it was cute, he’s going to get better #DWTS— The Librarian (@gimmiedafries) September 21, 2021
One Twitter user wrote: "He's actually pretty good which makes sense considering how much of wrestling is basically choreography and taking care of the other person with how your body moves. Should be a good long season for The Miz, but hopefully he wins!"prevnext
