Miro Says He Hopes His AEW Debut Promo Won’t Hurt Lana In WWE, More


AEW Superstar Miro (Rusev in WWE) was a guest on Busted Open Radio and commented on his relationship with Lana, his debut promo in AEW, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On referencing the WWE brass ring in his AEW debut promo: “You gather feelings over the years and if I’m on Twitch, I’m usually always positive. I never talked bad about somebody, just because don’t stone anybody. We’ve all done bad stuff, right? It’s just a certain time you put your heart and soul into certain things and you just don’t feel like it’s coming to fruition for one reason or another. It was just so disheartening over the years. I had to – and thankful for Chris [Jericho], I didn’t have to – but I went and saw Chris before that. I told him kind of my idea and he’s like, ‘Oh you should say that about the brass ring’. I’m like, ‘No, do I ask for permission? Do I ask for forgiveness after?’ He’s like, ‘No dude, you don’t have to ask for anything. You just go ahead and do it. It’s a good promo.’ I was so shocked because I’m so used to different styles. It was very important to me to say, because I meant all of these things. Over the years, I gathered all of these emotions that I needed one little second to express my frustrations for the past ten years, and now, let’s move on. Let’s forget what we did. Let’s forget everything. Let’s start AEW Dynamite. The Best Man, Miro, Kip Sabian. Now lets go ahead and kill whatever we can.”

On if he’s concerned on WWE taking out his comments in AEW on his real-life wife Lana: “Absolutely, but at the same time, I feel like they [WWE] should be professional and they should treat it as what it is and it’s nothing personal. They always say it’s nothing personal, it’s a business. Hopefully, they do treat it as nothing personal. It’s a business because that’s what it is and I just hope that it won’t hurt her and I really do hope and I’ve been thinking about this for a long time. It’s definitely something on the back of my mind, but I know and I pray that everything will be fine because I feel like we should definitely move on. It’s 2020 for Christ sakes.”

On the situation between him working in AEW and Lana in WWE: “It’s like you wake up and you go to work at Starbucks – somebody wakes up and works at Dunkin Donuts. It’s the same thing. It doesn’t matter. It’s a job, but there’s no animosity or anything like this to come with. I love my wife. I’m going to do anything for my wife. Is this the ideal situation? No, it’s not, but sometimes life takes you in different directions and you just have to roll with the punches. It’s hard because we’ve known each other for 7 years now and we’ve probably been together 99% of the time together,” Miro added. “Flying, driving, sleeping, wrestling, everything. So, it’s kind of taking an adjustment period, and thankfully, she has bundle of joy. She travels with her, she keeps her company and I have little Pickles and we have our little separate company so we can keep each other sane at times.”
