Miro used to work under the name of Rusev when he was in WWE. During his time in the company, Miro simply did not have a very memorable run for the majority of the time there.

Miro was over organically with fans, and WWE didn’t like that. WWE 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. This included The League of Nations, which was not booked well at all. While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Miro said the faction had a lot of potential. Miro made it clear he hated how the faction was just a punching bag for Roman Reigns.

“Nobody told us we were going to be a punching bag for Roman Reigns. That’s the only reason they were doing this. I thought we were looking at three former champions, big guys, strong guys, international guys. We haven’t had nothing like this on the roster. And on night number two we lost to Roman Reigns four-on-one. Ever since that night we knew we were destined to do this…to do nothing but jobs.”


The League of Nations was disbanded on the April 28, 2016, episode of SmackDown. Miro is happy working in AEW and that’s what matters to him right now.
