• “I became like a circus bear” – AEW Star On His Time In WWE
During a recent interview with the New York Post, AEW Superstar Miro (Rusev in WWE) talked about being the TNT Champion and being portrayed as a dominant, serious character once again.
Here’s what Miro had to say about his time in wrestling so far:
“I’m good. I always knew I’m good. This is the problem with me, I’m good at everything. So if you give me something, I’ll make it the best and that’s the problem. I won’t be happy until I’m the talk of the whole business, of course.
But somewhere along the lines, and this is going to tie it into it, I kept saying yes. I became this circus bear. I was a killer. I came in 2013-14 (to NXT) and killed everybody and then they gave me a little bit of something else. I showed how good I was at that, too.
I became like a circus bear. The more I said yes, the more crap I have to eat. I said yes to the wedding and yes to the dancing and yes to this and that, but that’s not who I am, man.
You have to go through these moments until you finally reach your destination. I wouldn’t change a single step. I’ll take the weddings. I’ll take everything because it leads me to my destination and now being the TNT Champion.”
