• Former WWE Star Isn’t Happy About His Position In AEW
After losing the TNT Championship, Miro (fka Rusev in WWE) hasn’t done much on AEW programming.
He was a part of the match to crown the inaugural All-Atlantic Champion at AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door, but he lost.
XeroNews recently reported that Miro isn’t happy with his direction in All Elite Wrestling.
On Friday’s episode of AEW Rampage, Interim AEW World Champion Jon Moxley defeated indy wrestler Mance Warner.
Miro wasn’t happy that Mance got to face Moxley and tweeted:
“Who’s this guy that is fighting for the title?”
The former WWE United States Champion will turn 38 in December. He’s under contract with AEW till 2026.
During an interview with Whatculture, Miro said the following about why he prefers AEW over WWE:
“It’s always going to be the freedom. Whenever anybody asks me, ‘What is the difference here?’, it’s the freedom. You don’t have to set yourself in a lower standard, because that’s what I thought the other place was. They let you lower your standard in order to fit their mold.
Which here, it’s not like that. You have a style, you go out there, you do your style to your best, and that’s what makes professional wrestling so much better because you see different clashes of style, different styles clash in the ring.”
