The Miz returning to WWE Raw to host Miz TV segment


The Miz is set to make his first appearance on WWE television since suffering an ACL injury at WrestleMania Backlash.

During SmackDown tonight, a commercial aired announcing that The Miz will host a Miz TV segment on Monday's episode of Raw. Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair will appear as Miz and John Morrison's guests.

Ripley is defending her Raw Women's Championship against Charlotte at WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on Sunday, June 20.

The Miz lost to Damian Priest in a lumberjack match at WrestleMania Backlash earlier this month. As part of a promotional tie-in with Netflix's "Army of the Dead" movie, the match featured zombie lumberjacks. After the match, there was an angle where the zombies filled the ring and were apparently eating Miz.

Dave Meltzer reported that Miz suffered a torn ACL during the lumberjack match when Priest landed on Miz's legs after a spinning kick off the top rope. Meltzer noted at the time that the severity of the tear wasn't known, but there was hope that it was a partial tear instead of a full one.

Monday's Raw will also feature Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston and Shayna Baszler vs. Reginald. The winner of McIntyre vs. Kingston will challenge for Bobby Lashley's WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell. McIntyre and Kingston's match on Monday has a stipulation where -- if Lashley or MVP interfere or even come out to ringside during the match -- Lashley will be suspended without pay for 90 days.
