Miro, formerly Rusev in WWE, surprised everyone on Wednesday when he was introduced as the Best Man for Kip Sabian's upcoming wedding.
Miro was released by WWE in April and has spent the past five months growing his Twitch channel by playing video games and interacting with fans. In his first promo with AEW, Miro took shots at WWE, saying he is no longer stuck under a glass ceiling or chasing an imaginary brass ring, which he said "you can shove up your ass."
Following his AEW appearance, Miro gave further comments on his YouTube page.
"Today is a special day because today is the best day ever. It's not just a gimmick, it's not just a name, it's not something I just came up with. It is the best day ever. If you haven't heard any of the promo, I really meant that. Ten years, the same roof, glass ceiling, always pitched that there was this brass ring, this imaginary brass ring. I already told you what to do with the brass ring," he said. "The feeling is great, I truly feel great. The whole day, I've been trying to keep myself numb for the past two or three days, just tune out of old emotions and everything going by. The closer it got, the more excited I got. All day, just going back and forth and thinking, 'what should I say?' Not just what I say, but the things that I say, I felt all those things. This is not just a promo, those are my feelings. I do feel that I am the best and I do feel the thing I said about the brass ring. I'm super excited about AEW. There have been about 95,000 people here that I've never worked with. Everyone is so nice and so receptive. Kip is great. Kip and Penelope, congratulations on their wedding. Since I'm going to be the best man, it's going to be the best wedding ever. If you know me, I know a thing or two about weddings. You've seen me have about four of them and that's only the ones you know. I'm stoked. Walking out, I felt goosebumps."
Miro said he spotted Billy Gunn, who helped train him, in the crowd and that increased his excitement. He was also happy to be in front of a crowd as AEW does allow a limited number of fans in the building. Miro did not appear on WWE television during the empty arena era.
He finished the video by saying, "I love my video games and Twitch, and I will keep doing Twitch, but wrestling is my love. I came to the United States to be a professional wrestler and now I'm in the best pro wrestling promotion."
Miro said in July that he was done with wrestling and was going to be a professional Twitch streamer.
