Miro made his debut in AEW back in 2020 and there were a lot of expectations from him as he had proven to be a great performer. After a rocky start, Miro redeemed himself after beating Darby Allin for the TNT Championship. Miro recalled his surreal promo segment with The Rock in WWE.

Before AEW, Miro worked in WWE under the name of Rusev. 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 and storylines. While speaking during the special edition episode of the Kurt Angle show, Miro recalled his promo segment with The Rock and how it felt for him to get to work with The Rock.

“I love that; it was such a great moment. First, we were in Brooklyn, sold out 20,000 people, whatever it is. We’re doing our regular spiel, and all of a sudden, with that music, hit man, that crowd pop like this, its electricity literally in the air.


It was great. Just being there with the guy [Dwayne Johnson] that I’ve been watching all my life perform and not just in the ring, but in Hollywood. And now I get to do my thing with him. It was just surreal.

Like we were in the middle of the ring and doing the stare-off. He [The Rock] goes, ‘Wait, wait, wait, not now, not now.’ He’s teaching you right there, and you can’t even tell, man, because he’s so damn good. And he [The Rock] knows these people in the back of his hand and knows how to control them. Yes, teach me, Rock; I wanna be like you.”

Miro made his return to AEW television recently as well. We will have to wait and see what the company will have in store for him now that he is back.
