As a guest on The Zaslow Show, AEW superstar Miro, also known as Rusev in WWE, spoke about the federation of Tony Khan and other superstars like CM Punk and Bryan Danielson. Miro had a solid run as the TNT Champion before finally dropping the belt on Sammy Guevara.
He seemed to be “over” as the “God’s Favorite/Forsaken Champion”. He fought Bryan Danielson for the number one contender spot for the AEW Championship at AEW Full Gear.
What’s next for Miro?
On what bothers him most in this time in the wrestling world: “CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, me, Moxley, none of us are WWE guys like everyone says.
We’ve all been around the world before joining that federation, so when someone says that talent is a WWE talent it’s not fair. God created me, not an athlete in the possession of Vince McMahon. That was just a place to do wrestling because there were no other options, but now there are a lot more important options and this is really satisfying.”
On AEW:” It is currently the best wrestling company in the world and we prove it day in and day out. As for our young talents, they need to take a step forward because there are big names who are also having fantastic matches with great impact but they need to get noticed even more to improve where they need to.
There are no leashes here and I’m happy with that. There is no one to tell you what you can and what you cannot do. It’s up to you to sink or swim with other amazing people like you. I got off to a bit of a rough start and have had to take control of myself and my destiny ever since.
Tony Khan is a very intelligent businessman, an exceptional boss and it can be said that he understands this because he gives everyone the freedom to express themselves at their best. And for this reason, we are so successful.”
On the match lost against Bryan Danielson at Full Gear, Miro concluded: “Surely if I had been in full health I would have destroyed Byan Danielson in about eight minutes. Unfortunately, I was not and I had to do what I could throughout the match, otherwise, I would have won.
at 100%.” Hangman Page kicked off the show with The Dark Order. His victory speech was interrupted by Bryan Danielson. Danielson managed to draw huge heat from the crowd by mentioning his WrestleMania 30 victory. He also insulted Virginia, Hangman’s home state, for booing him.
