“The Miz” now has a column up over at WWE.com. In this edition, he speaks about a recent appearance for charity. He participated in a “Grand Slam Paddle Jam” which all proceeds would benefit St Judes Childrens Hospital. Here are some of the things “The Miz” had to say: When I heard about this charity event, I instantly thought that I would not only be helping St. Jude Children’s Hospital, but there would be ping-pong and Dippinâ<80><99> Dots â<80>” you can’t beat that. As I arrived, I walked the green carpet and let everyone know that I was walking away with the Golden Paddle. Then they told me that it was a doubles tournament, which I insisted didn’t matter. About 20 minutes before the tournament was about to start, they found me a partner in Randy Spelling (son of Aaron Spelling, creator of 90210 and Melrose Place). I’ve known Randy for a while, so I went up and talked to him. He told me he wasn’t that good at ping-pong and I thought, â<80><9c>Damn, I’m going to lose this thing.â<80>
