AEW Star Miro used to work under the name of Rusev when he was in WWE. During his time in WWE, Miro simply did not have a very memorable run for the majority of his time in the company.
Miro would over organically with fans and WWE didn’t like that and would ruin his character by involving him with nonsensical feuds such as the love triangle storyline with his real-life wife Lana and Bobby Lashley.
Miro certainly doesn’t have a lot of good things about his time in WWE. While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Miro claimed that he lost it after WWE released him because Miro was so overjoyed.
“I was so happy. Like, I kind of lost it for 30 seconds. The whole pandemic thing was happening, and we were just trying to fight for some kind of rights, you know, because it’s not right that we have to fly every week to TV in all these circumstances without anybody caring.
It leaked out that we were on it, and I think a few days later I was released. I lost it for a little bit because I was more concerned about the health and the safety protocol. I got released, but I was so happy because I knew right away that I’m going to go and do what I know I can do. I never had any doubts how good I am, and if your company doesn’t appreciate me, I’m going to go find a different company that does.”
