Miro has taken on many roles during his time in wrestling.
From The Bulgarian Brute to Single Rusev to Gamer Miro and now AEW TNT Champion, Miro has shown a wide range of personalities in WWE and AEW. And maybe that's been a problem.
"I’m good. I always knew I’m good. This is the problem with me, I’m good at everything. So if you give me something, I’ll make it the best (of it) and that’s the problem. I won’t be happy until I’m the talk of the whole business, of course. But somewhere along the lines, and this is going to tie it into it, I kept saying yes. I became this circus bear. I was a killer. I came in 2013-14 (to NXT) and killed everybody and then they gave me a little bit of something else. I showed how good I was at that, too. I became like a circus bear. The more I said yes, the more crap I have to eat. I said yes to the wedding and yes to the dancing and yes to this and that, but that’s not who I am, man," Miro told Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post. "You have to go through these moments until you finally reach your destination. I wouldn’t change a single step. I’ll take the weddings. I’ll take everything because it leads me to my destination and now being the TNT champion."
Miro first entered AEW to a lukewarm reception as the Best Man of Kip Sabian. After months of playing video games, Miro snapped and turned on Sabian, becoming the killer that everyone was hoping to see when he first joined the promotion.
"There is no other version, this is me. I finally have the opportunity to show how real I am and people click with that and people see it. It’s an easy thing to do for me to just be out there and be myself and do what I do best," he said. "In wrestling, it’s full of crap characters who come out there and try to be something they’re not and that’s not how this thing works. You have to draw emotion from within yourself. You got to be yourself, you got to represent what you believe in and that’s what I do and that’s why it’s clicking so hard with the people because they can see I’m not bulls—ting them. This is all real. It’s coming straight from my soul, and it’s my destiny and they see that and you can’t see through that."
Miro is set to defend the AEW TNT Championship against Lance Archer at AEW Double or Nothing on Sunday.
