Miro has already released a video addressing his surprise debut on AEW Dynamite.
As seen on this week’s post-ALL OUT episode of the weekly AEW on TNT television program, former WWE Superstar Rusev made his debut as Miro after being revealed as “The Best Man” for the wedding of Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford that will air live on a future episode of AEW Dynamite (Watch full video of the AEW Dynamite segment here).
Miro made his debut appearance in the wedding-related segment on the Wednesday, September 9, 2020 episode of AEW Dynamite at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida, cutting a promo on his former employers at WWE and referencing the infamous “Brass Ring” speech given by Vince McMahon during his appearance on the inaugural “Stone Cold Podcast” special on the WWE Network back in 2014.
The promo saw Miro talk about spending ten years “under the same house” and “the same glass ceiling” trying to reach for what he called “an imaginary brass ring” before telling Vince and WWE to “take that brass ring and shove it up your ass!”
After the show, Miro released a video on his official YouTube channel dubbed “To Be Miro TV” to explain why he choosed the words he used in his first promo in All Elite Wrestling and how he meant everything he said on TV during the broadcast on TNT on Wednesday night.
“I absolutely meant every word of that promo,” Miro said in the video released on his “To Be Miro TV” YouTube channel. “For ten years, I was constantly told about an imaginary brass ring, that I already told you what to do with. This was not just a promo, but my actual feelings.”
He continued, “Over the past few days, I was trying to keep myself numb, trying to tune out all the emotions I was feeling. The closer I got to tonight, the more excited I got. All day, I went back-and-forth with my thoughts, thinking what I should say in my promo.”
From there, he touched on being introduced as “The Best Man” for the wedding of Sabian and Ford, but made sure to point out that the moniker isn’t just a catchy hook for a television story line, but instead a shoot description of what he feels he is — the best man in the business of professional wrestling today.
“Everything worked out well, and today is a special day because it is the best day ever,” Miro said. “‘The Best Man’ name is not a gimmick. I really do feel like I’m the best man, the best professional wrestler in the world.
He also spoke about his level of excitement to work with so many talented performers that he has yet to have the opportunity to share the squared circle with in his career.
“There are about 95,000 people here that I’ve never worked with,” he said. “With that being said, everybody here is so nice and receptive, and I am really excited. Also, unlike the other place, in AEW, we actually do have a crowd. We had about 1,000 people [at Daily’s Place] and its such a fantastic feeling being in front of them.”
Miro continued, “When I stepped out there, I truly felt goosebumps. I was really happy to see Billy Gunn in the crowd. Billy was my trainer [in WWE] and it was a great feeling to know he’s here. He was so happy to see me, and seeing him smile made me feel even better.”
Unlike in WWE, where engaging in third-party platforms is now banned as an actual rule that the company is strongly enforcing as of late, Miro made sure to inform his fans that he still intends to deliver on his promise of being a content-creator by trade in addition to serving his role as one of the newest additions to the AEW talent roster.
“I will continue to do Twitch and play video games, but wrestling is still my first love,” he said. “I came to this country to be a professional wrestler. And now, I am in the best professional wrestling promotion in the world.”
