WWE Superstar ‘The Miz’ Talks Bullying at Ross Elementary
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A wrestling performer may seem to be an unlikely choice to speak out against bullying.
But youngsters at Ross Elementary School responded enthusiastically Monday morning, to the man they call “The Miz.” Mike Mizanin (his real name) immediately makes his intentions known.
“We’re trying to prevent bullying,” he says to an audience of fourth through sixth graders. “Get rid of it. Get it out of here. How many of you have been bullied, ever?”
Almost every hand goes up. Through WWE’s “Be a Star” campaign, wrestlers speak directly to kids who follow their exploits
