Miro formerly known as Rusev in WWE is currently Kip Sabian‘s best man in AEW. He appears to be much happier now, but his exit from the company was pretty rough.
During a recent media conference for AEW’s Winter Is Coming event, Tony Khan spoke about Miro’s time in AEW so far, as well as how he was treated in WWE. You can check out some of the highlights here.
“Miro’s going to be a big star here. It’s really hard for people to come into AEW when you have a ranking system unless they come in at the start of a new year cycle and I didn’t want to wait till January to bring Miro in.”
“I thought he got beaten down so bad… I saw some jackass on Twitter was like, ‘This guy drove a tank at WrestleMania and now he’s doing this,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, then he got kicked in the nuts and they treated him like sh*t for years.’ He drove a tank out five years ago, that’s not the guy I signed. The guy I signed has been abused for years and he’s being rebuilt, he’s going to be a huge star in wrestling and he is a huge star, he’s a huge name in wrestling but he wasn’t treated like it for a long time.”
It’s safe to say Khan is happy to have Miro on the roster and wasn’t a fan of what he saw in WWE. He also seems to have big plans for the Bulgarian Brute, which should be music to fans ears after his previous run. 2021 may very well be the year of Miro in AEW.
