Miro has made a path for himself in the world of professional wrestling for several years, and after his release WWE last year, he’s continued his journey with All Elite Wrestling. There, he’s quickly transformed into a dominant competitor en route to his crowning moment as the company’s TNT Champion.
Speaking to the Joseph Staszewski of The New York Post, Miro spoke about his path to AEW, and why no matter what happens to him, he’s ready for anything. Part of this is because Miro knows that he’s great at wrestling, regardless of what some may say.
“I’m good,” said Miro. “I always knew I’m good. This is the problem with me, I’m good at everything. So if you give me something, I’ll make it the best (of it) and that’s the problem. I won’t be happy until I’m the talk of the whole business, of course. But somewhere along the lines, and this is going to tie it into it, I kept saying yes. I became this circus bear. I was a killer. I came in 2013-14 (to NXT) and killed everybody and then they gave me a little bit of something else. I showed how good I was at that, too. I became like a circus bear. The more I said yes, the more crap I have to eat. I said yes to the wedding and yes to the dancing and yes to this and that, but that’s not who I am, man.”
Miro was also asked about his brief but eventful career in AEW up to his point, which has included his role as Kip Sabian’s best man and their partnership for notable moments like Arcade Anarchy. According to man formerly known as Ruseb, those moments were all necessary steps that he wouldn’t change at all.
“You have to go through these moments until you finally reach your destination,” said Miro. “I wouldn’t change a single step. I’ll take the weddings. I’ll take everything because it leads me to my destination and now being the TNT champion.”
