Over the years, The Miz has taken part in many high-profile matches at WrestleMania. From main eventing against John Cena to sharing the ring with Bad Bunny, The A-Lister had an illustrious WrestleMania career. However, one extravagant idea that he had which didn’t quite work out was to compete against The Ultimate Warrior at The Showcase Of Immortals.

In his latest “TikTok” video, The Miz revealed his plans to wrestle The Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania. Growing up, The Miz idolized Warrior which is why he “really wanted to” compete in a gauntlet lumberjack match against former Intercontinental Champions, with the final entrant being Warrior. The A-Lister had planned to involve four different champions, with the lumberjack setting being chosen to save time on entrances.

According to The Miz, The Ultimate Warrior would have squashed him to win the WWE Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania. The Hollywood star said,

“I would have to go through a gauntlet match … In the end when I defeated the last person in that gauntlet lumberjack match, what would happen? Ultimate Warrior’s music would hit, and he would be the last person in the gauntlet match,” Miz said. “He would run down, he would hit me with three clotheslines, do a splash and hit 1,2,3, and beat me for the Intercontinental Championship and I thought that would have been really, really cool.”


In 2004, The Miz signed a developmental contract with WWE and was assigned to Ohio Valley Wrestling, WWE’s developmental territory at the time. He made his WWE debut in 2006 and has since become one of the company’s most prominent wrestlers. The Miz cemented himself as the inaugural Grand Slam Champion in the history of WWE.

This whole idea began simply because The Miz wanted to defeat all the former Intercontinental Champions, with The Ultimate Warrior having one of the most well-known reigns in history. The plan obviously never materialized, with Warrior’s final WWE bout taking place in 1996, a dark match against Vader.

After leaving WWE in 1991, The Ultimate Warrior went on to compete in various wrestling promotions around the world, including World Championship Wrestling and the short-lived Ultimate Warrior Wrestling promotion. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014, just a few days before his sudden passing. Sadly, a WrestleMania moment with The Miz never happened, but it would have made an incredible memory.
