The superstar wrestler is in the UAE to promote the October WWE Live event, Hugo Berger reports

The Miz says he is delighted to be returning to Abu Dhabi as the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) bandwagon rolls back into town in October.

But before then, the superstar wrestler, whose real name is Michael Gregory Mizanin, will be kicking off a three-day tour of the UAE today to promote the forthcoming WWE Live at Zayed Sports City International Tennis Stadium, taking place from October 10 to 12.

Tomorrow at 4.30pm, ticket holders for the October event will have the opportunity to meet The Miz at the tennis stadium.

Speaking at a red carpet event in Los Angeles before his visit, The Miz says he was taken with Abu Dhabi when he came here for 2012's WWE event.

"Man, Abu Dhabi was so much fun," he declares. "I went golfing on the links course. Let me tell you something, I lost about 45 balls that day. I think I broke even on that trip just from losing golf balls

"But you know, it was awesome. The country is just one big tourist attraction."

He also praised the crowds who came to see the WWE event in the capital in 2012.

"Every country and every city has a different kind of vibe. In Abu Dhabi it was just loud and they love the chanting," he remembers.

"You know, if I go 'awesome', they start chanting 'this is awesome' - all day long, and I love it. They're very knowledgeable and they love to be entertained."
