Twitter user @Maggie_IK explained the symbolism behind the red, white and green. Analysing the new TNT Title design, Maggie tweeted:
“Miro is basically wearing the Bulgarian flag: the WHITE strap represents SPIRIT and FREEDOM- it’s up to you to figure out what he “broke free” from, I’m not making any assumptions here.
“The GREEN represents the beautiful Bulgarian mountains, which outline his ambition to climb to the top of the #AEW mountain.
“I can only assume he’ll continue wearing the RED gear: the red represents the blood our ancestors spilled, defending our country. I see this as the blood he’s willing to spill, crushing his enemies, as he made perfectly clear in his promo last night on #AEWDynamite
“And finally- THE SIDE PLATES the city of Plovdiv coat of arms- his hometown AND MINE. It says “Древен и Вечен”- “Ancient and Eternal”. Plovdiv is Europe’s oldest city and it will never fall! The two lions are holding a crown over 7 hills- Plovdiv is built on 7 hills.”
Miro defeated Darby Allin in May to become TNT Champion. Since winning the Gold, Miro has defended the title against Dante Martin, Lance Archer, Evil Uno and Brian Pillman Jr.
