Miro confirmed his AEW contract status while debating whether he could be a better AEW Champion than Jon Moxley.
After MLW’s Mance Warner was granted a “championship eliminator” match against Interim AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, ‘The Redeemer’ Miro blasted the company for giving the relevant newcomer a title opportunity. He took to Twitter and asked who Warner was, emphasizing that many of the audience weren’t familiar with the independent wrestler.
Miro’s frustrations didn’t end there. A fan then commented on Miro’s post and asked the former TNT Champion why he was still in AEW. This prompted Miro to like the commenter’s Tweet, which suggested that “he had it better in WWE.”
During his appearance on The Sessions with Renne Paquette, Miro opened up about his goals of becoming an AEW World Champion and compared himself to Moxley. It was during the comparison that Miro revealed his AEW contract status.
“I want to be AEW World Champion, that’s my number one goal…”
Renee interjects: “Well it belongs to somebody else right now so maybe just calm down.”
“Let’s just not start there, he (Jon) is putting some weight on it. At the beginning I said the World Title that Jon has, has no weight to it but now he’s putting some weight on it by beating some good people. Eventually it [winning the AEW World Championship] is going to happen, I have three more years or what not and I know it’s going to happen. I know I’m just as good as everyone, the other champions… I’m bigger, stronger, faster, better looking… so it’s going to happen.”
Talk of AEW stars jumping ship to WWE has only escalated since Triple H took over as Head of Creative. Fans have already seen the likes of Dakota Kai, and Dexter Lumis brought back into the fold on Monday Night Raw.
When discussing the rumours of AEW contracts being bought out by WWE, AEW President Tony Khan quickly shot down any speculation. He reaffirmed that many of the wrestlers who ended up appearing in AEW over the last several months still have years left on their contracts.
