The MizAccording to PWTorch.com, WWE selected The Miz to host SummerSlam this year because he is viewed as the top social media representative in the company, and as seen in a press release issued by WWE earlier today, the company plans to make a big social media push for this year's PPV.

As noted earlier, The Miz will be wearing the new Google Glass product, and will be posting photos and video footage online giving fans an inside look at SummerSlam this year.

In an interview conducted for Mashable.com, WWE VP Perkins Miller had the following to say about WWE's use of social media at SummerSlam this year:

"We can use social media as the glue that connects all of these things for our fans who can't be in Los Angeles as well as the fans who are there. It creates a unified experience we weren't able to have before."
