In an exclusive interview with Inside The Ropes, The Best Man told us how he’s enjoying creative freedom in All Elite Wrestling so far, and why we’ve barely scratched the surface on what Miro will do in AEW following criticisms over his debut.
While we discussed everything from whether Brock Lesnar might turn up in AEW to which wrestlers are comparable to the most famous video game characters, one thing I had to ask Miro about was the blame which has seemingly being attached to him by some wrestling fans for his wife, WWE Superstar Lana, being driven through an announce table several weeks in a row on WWE RAW.
So, is Miro’s departure from the company to blame for Lana’s recent repeated acquaintance with the announce table?
“I don’t book their shows, I have no idea. All I know is that she’s most likely tougher than anybody else on their roster because clearly that’s the first time in history that’s been done. And every single time, she gets the f**k up and keeps going, you know. She doesn’t say, ‘No.’ She doesn’t say, ‘I don’t want to do that.’ She doesn’t sell.
“She’s going out there and doing her job, and doing her job to perfection. Because you can see, in that ring, when she gets that time, you can see who’s who and who’s been working, and who’s been sitting on their a***s the whole time. And I’m so freaking proud of CJ, man, because she’s proven that she’s most likely the most talented and underrated person in the whole entire wrestling community.”
For ten years, Miro performed as Rusev in WWE – and the Bulgarian Brute had never wrestled on television before his tenure there. Less than two months into his AEW career, we caught up with Miro to discuss his new-found freedom, working with Kip Sabian, if he has any regrets over how his AEW debut went, the current run of Chris Jericho and much, much more.
You can catch Miro on AEW Dynamite this Wednesday at midnight and every subsequent Wednesday at 1am via Fite TV.
