Miro Explains Why He Didn’t Challenge For Interim AEW World Title


Miro says that the top title match at Forbidden Door was “beneath him.”

“The Redeemer” Miro challenged for the new All-Atlantic Championship at AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door. Despite once being called “God’s Favorite Champion,” Miro walked away without the championship. However, he doesn’t appear to be dwelling on the past as he already has his sights set on a bigger prize, the AEW World Championship.

In an interview with “WhatCulture Wrestling,” the former TNT Champion spoke about the interim World Title match at Forbidden Door and mentioned that it was “beneath him.” Miro said he’s waiting until CM Punk returns to capture the biggest prize in the company.

“… [Jon Moxley vs Hiroshi Tanahashi] is beneath me, man, that’s a secondary title. That’s not what I care about. If I would’ve cared, I would’ve put myself in that battle royal, I would’ve won it all, and I would’ve gone for the Interim Championship.”

“But until the real champion is back, that [CM] Punk guy that broke his foot or whatever he did — something broke in his body — until he comes back, I beat him for the title, then it wouldn’t matter. I wasn’t interested in charity titles.”

CM Punk was forced to relinquish the AEW World Championship after sustaining a foot injury. A tournament was created to crown an interim World Champion which Blackpool Combat Club member Jon Moxley won. Moxley is set to defend his title against Brody King this week on Dynamite.
