Recently Released NXT Star Teases Challenging Miro

One of the talents recently released from WWE NXT has teased challenging AEW’s TNT Champion, Miro.

Former NXT North American Champion Bronson Reed, now going by his pre-WWE name Jonah Rock, issued a cryptic tweet that appeared to be aimed at ‘The Redeemer’.

Following a recent episode of Dynamite, Rock released an acrostic tweet, in which the first letter of each word spelt out ‘Give Me Miro’:

The TNT Champion has yet to respond but one can imagine that a potential collision between the two super-heavyweights may present an enticing opportunity for AEW matchmaker Tony Khan.

As with all WWE talents, Rock will have to wait out his non-compete clause, which is typically just 30 days for NXT wrestlers.

If this was the case for Rock, he could potentially be available for AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view.

Miro is the fourth man to hold the TNT Title and is fast approaching 100 days as champion.

Having defeated Darby Allin for the belt back in May, Miro has since made six successful defences of his gold, most recently against the newly signed Fuego del Sol.

Other challengers have included Lee Johnson, Brian Pillman Jr, Evil Uno, Dante Martin and Lance Archer at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view.
