Miro used to work under the name of Rusev when he was in WWE. During his time in the company, Miro was largely underutilized and fans were unhappy with his booking as well.

Following his WWE release a couple of years ago, Miro made his AEW debut at the September 9, 2020, episode of Dynamite as Kip Sabian’s Best Man. That gimmick certainly did not do any favors for him.

While speaking on The Sessions with Renee PaquetteMiro revealed that it was Tony Khan’s idea to pitch a new character. Miro agreed with Khan to be The Best Man.

“Tony Khan wanted, they called me with a spot to be The Best Man. I wanted to just be a new person. If this is what you want me to be, I can’t come and be Rusev, be like, ‘I’m gonna play video games and I’m gonna f*cking…,’ can’t do that. So I was like alright


Miro is currently feuding with The House Of Black on AEW television. He also vowed to go after the AEW World Title. We’ll have to see when that will be.
