Miro is still searching for answers.
Miro had his chance to become the number one contender for the AEW World Title at Full Gear, but lost to Bryan Danielson in the finals of the AEW Title Eliminator Tournament. After losing the AEW TNT Title and losing in the finals of the tournament, Miro wonders why his God is messing with him.
"I am God's forsaken champion because I lost. God's Favorite Champion is dead," Miro said on the Zaslow Show before discussing the creative freedom he has in AEW. "I have a free range to be myself. I love God when he's on my side. I hate God when he's not on my side. These are daily conversations. It's not just me, I feel like it's a lot of people at home. Now, I just have to bring it to the mainstream so I can show what I'm going through every day. This is me. It's not fake, not phony wrestling bullshit or imaginary character. This is me, I'm playing who I always have been."
Commenting about his loss to Danielson and guys like him, Danielson, and CM Punk being considered "ex-WWE guys," Miro replied, "If I were to be full health, I would have destroyed Bryan Danielson in about eight minutes. Unfortunately, I wasn't and I had to labor through the whole match. Unfortunately, God had a different opinion. As far as younger talent, you have to step up your game. CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, me, [Jon Moxley], we're not WWE guys like everybody calls it. These people have been around the world way before WWE. When somebody says, 'this guy is WWE,' it is incorrect. God made me, not Vince McMahon."
Miro was not originally slated to be part of the tournament and was a replacement for Moxley, who entered inpatient alcohol treatment.
Speaking about his future in AEW and trying to get right with God, Miro said, "It's always been about the conversation with God and trying to figure out if he's messing with me. I wasn't supposed to be in this tournament. Then, all of a sudden, the opportunity came. Now I know, God was messing with me. He gave me the hope spot just to pull it away. I know this is going to lead to something way bigger, I just need to get healthy. Once I figure out my neck situation is going to be okay, then I can come back and dominate and be once again God's favorite champion."
It is unknown when Miro will return to the ring. Along with his neck, his leg was heavily taped against Danielson at Full Gear.
