Miro used to work as Rusev when he was in WWE, but his run in the company was ultimately marred by numerous bad booking decisions. He came to AEW to change his fortunes and for a while, that did happen. However, Miro has been absent for quite some time now, and it seems he even turned down plans for his return to AEW television.
Miro has not been seen since All Out, and he has not even wrestled on Dynamite for a few months. Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful recently reported that his absence was due to AEW not having any creative plans for him.
According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Fightful’s report was not completely accurate. Meltzer reported that Miro had, in fact, turned down plans for him to return to AEW television.
Fightful reported that Miro was healthy and not doing acting and was not being used because there was no creative idea for him. The first part is accurate. The second part is very much not He isn’t injured and he is available.
Ideas were presented for him in September for an angle that would go through Full Gear, but he wasn’t down with them, so rather than put him on TV for no purpose, they were waiting for him to agree to creative. He’s expected back soon and the sides have been talking.
Miro also wants to win the AEW World Title eventually. Regardless, we will have to wait and see when he will finally make his comeback to AEW television. After all, fans would love to see him become the TNT Champion again.
