According to reports, the reason WWE selected The Miz as the official host for this year’s SummerSlam is because he is seen as the top social media representative by the company. WWE is looking to make a big social media push for this year’s summer classic, thus, Miz was tapped as the host of the show.
Miz will be using Google Class during the SummerSlam pay-per-view.. Google Glass is a computer linked up to a pair of glasses that transmits photos and videos through social media platforms.
WWE V.P. Perkins Miller spoke to the folks at the Mashable.com website, saying, “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.”
In addition to those duties, Miz will also be representing WWE for the Playstation launch of a live-event streaming App. SummerSlam can be ordered via the Playstation Network, providing another outlet for fans to watch the pay-per-view.
