On this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, which averaged over one million viewers, former WWE star Rusev (now Miro) debuted as Kip Sabian’s best man ahead of his upcoming wedding with Penelope Ford.
Taking to his YouTube channel for a Q&A following his debut, the former United States Champion stated that he is of the belief that AEW is currently “destroying NXT”, a brand he used to wrestle on.
Miro spoke about how everyone in AEW has the “same agenda”, in all wanting to see All Elite Wrestling “succeed”:
We all have the same agenda. We all want AEW to succeed. We’re all in agreement that we’re already doing great, and destroying NXT and all that, but now, we’re up for the big prize, and I knew that they were going to get there anyways, but I’m just glad along and join the joy ride.”
Miro then spoke about how his debut with AEW came to be. He also spoke about his feelings towards Tony Khan:
“I’m just excited to have the opportunity. I’m thankful to Tony Khan that we got in contact when he got in contact, everything was fine. He’s such a good dude, he’s such a great owner, and he’s very open to talk to with creative ideas and everything. He’s around everybody, it’s not like he’s hiding. His energy is definitely great, and he just wants the best.”
