Miro (formerly Rusev in WWE) has taken to his YouTube channel to comment on making his AEW debut last night alongside Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford as ‘The Best Man’ for their wedding.
In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel after last night’s post-All Out episode of Dynamite, Miro spoke about it being “the best day ever”. He also alluded to his unhappiness while working for WWE:
“Today is a special day because today is the best day ever. It’s not just a gimmick, it’s not just a name, it’s not something I just came up with. It is the best day ever. If you haven’t heard any of the promo, I really meant that. Ten years, the same roof, glass ceiling, always pitched that there was this brass ring, this imaginary brass ring. I already told you what to do with the brass ring. The feeling is great, I truly feel great. The whole day, I’ve been trying to keep myself numb for the past two or three days, just tune out of old emotions and everything going by. The closer it got, the more excited I got. All day, just going back and forth and thinking, ‘what should I say?’ Not just what I say, but the things that I say, I felt all those things. This is not just a promo, those are my feelings. I do feel that I am the best and I do feel the thing I said about the brass ring. I’m super excited about AEW. There have been about 95,000 people here that I’ve never worked with. Everyone is so nice and so receptive. Kip is great. Kip and Penelope, congratulations on their wedding. Since I’m going to be the best man, it’s going to be the best wedding ever. If you know me, I know a thing or two about weddings. You’ve seen me have about four of them and that’s only the ones you know. I’m stoked. Walking out, I felt goosebumps.”
During the video, Miro also spoke about what it meant to him to see WWE Hall of Famer Billy Gunn in the crowd. Miro noted that Billy was one of the people who trained him and taught him how to wrestle.
Finally, Miro spoke about how he’ll continue being able to stream on Twitch, but noted that wrestling is his love, and said he’s happy to be working for “the best pro wrestling promotion”:
“I love my video games and Twitch, and I will keep doing Twitch, but wrestling is my love. I came to the United States to be a professional wrestler and now I’m in the best pro wrestling promotion.”
