Miro is the best man on Twitch and he can thank Xavier Woods for giving him the inspiration.
Before he was released by WWE in April, Miro was regularly featured on UpUpDownDown with Woods. Appearing on Woods' gaming channel made Miro more comfortable playing games while also trying to be entertaining. That, along with some advice from Woods, gave Miro the confidence to start his Twitch channel.
"Xavier Woods was the main reason I'm on Twitch today," Miro said on AEW Unrestricted. "We shared a love of video games for many years. I played video games for as long as I remember, but I never thought of myself as playing video games in front of different people because we all have different emotions playing video games and I wasn't sure if people wanted to see that. He told me, 'No, you're an entertainer, you're so funny, and you love video games. You should do it.' It happened right as I got fired, so I had nothing else to do. Then I wanted to go the full professional route because I don't half-ass anything. I got all the right equipment and all the right set-ups. Everything happened because of [Woods]. He gave me the confidence. It was timing as well. If I didn't get figured, I don't think I would have started the Twitch because I like to put 100% into what I was doing. When I was wrestling, I put 100% into that. Once that went away, I put 100% into Twitch."
Miro said he'll continue to game and grow his Twitch stream along with competing for AEW. He ended by saying that he loves the community he created with the Handsome Chatters.
