• Miro Was Going To Be Involved In An Erectile Dysfunction Storyline In WWE (Details)
Around this same time last year, current AEW wrestler Miro (fka Rusev in WWE) returned to RAW and got involved in a storyline where Lana left him for Bobby Lashley.
It was revealed during the storyline that Lana left Miro because he was a $ex addict.
While speaking on this week’s AEW Unrestricted, Miro revealed that WWE wanted to go with a storyline where it would be revealed that he had erectile dysfunction, before the $ex addict angle was pitched.
“They wanted [Lana] to say I was a $ex addict, but the original pitch was that I have erectile dysfunction. They really wanted to kill me, completely. I don’t think in anybody’s eyes how the babyface has erectile dysfunction that he’s a good guy.
There’s nothing wrong with people who have erectile dysfunction, people take care of it, but that was not the case here. There was no coming back from it. Absolutely no coming back from it. I told them, ‘Vince, this is going to bury me completely.’ He already had the man who took my wife, then I have erectile dysfunction, and I’m going to lose. I wasn’t supposed to lose, that just changed with time.
I said it was a better idea if we do the $ex addict thing, and he went for it right away. Thank God I did not have erectile dysfunction as a character.”
