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 talked about his feud with Bobby Lashley. Miro claimed that WWE promised him the main event of WrestleMania with Lashley, but that did not end up happening.

“I was brought up for the spot to have a WrestleMania main event match. That’s what I was pitched. I don’t think I even made it to WrestleMania. Yeah, and it’s not like I didn’t do something they wanted me to, I did everything they wanted. I thought it was still over with the people.”


Miro also previously stated that WWE made him become like circus bear. It remains to be seen when Miro will return to AEW television as fans certainly want to see him back.
