"Ever since AEW formed, I started watching it and I was so fascinated by it," Miro said. "There are so many reasons why I was fascinated, but it didn't sink into my head until I got there and I was like, 'Wow!' It just blew my mind. I kind of have an epiphany in professional wrestling: I was just into this bubble and at the same style for ten years, and everything outside was like, 'Well, that makes no sense.' You're just pointing fingers, but now, I'm on the outside looking and I finally understand why AEW is the best. AEW gives you every single style around the world, and when they invite you to come to AEW, they don't invite you and tell you, 'Hey, come and change your style to what we want'. No, you come and show your style, doing whatever you're coming from.
"Luchadores come and they bring you lucha libre, instead of people with a strong style, they come in and do a strong style," Miro continued. "They don't have to be a style that a certain promotion wants. The old bubble is like boxing. AEW is like MMA. We have all styles combining into one and in one show. You'll see every single thing under the sun. You're not just going to see boxing, you're going to see all the martial arts. That's why I love AEW; that's why I cannot wait to get in the ring."
Miro continued saying he can't wait to present his style in AEW and referenced possibly drawing inspiration from Kurt Angle's tough in-ring style with the lightheartedness in the locker room.

"I was a big fan of Kurt Angle - I've said that before. I think he's probably my favorite superstar after Hulk Hogan, but the way he was in the ring, he'll kick your a-s so bad that you will have no idea. He will tie you up and will do anything. He's vicious! His promos were amazing, but backstage he was not afraid to have fun. He was not afraid to have fun.

"Even with movies, I was able to watch The Avengers - half of The Avengers is just a comedy. It's just a lighthearted feeling, 'Hey man! Good guys! Bad guys! Whatever, we can do it!' and that's what is so beautiful about entertainment. I want to be a human being because as human beings, that's what we do! We're not just one or two, we are everything!"
Miro later mentioned that he is on a mission to prove he is the best. He said he had been warned that while in WWE, people would try to expose him, and he worked diligently to be a well-rounded performer that could do everything. All he wants with his new company is the chance to showcase his skillset.

"[I want] to show that I am the best man," Miro said. "Plain and simple. The Best Man is not just a gimmick, I believe I am The Best Man. When you watch my video games, I am the best at video games. This is not something I say lightly. In the ring, I am the best in the ring, so it doesn't matter. You can't catch me off guard, that's the thing. People are like, 'Oh, let's try to expose him this way,' as Mark [Henry] warned me before.

"'Let's try to expose him that way'. No, you cannot, because I'm an all-around player, man. You can't. People tried for years. 'Oh, lets put him in this. Lets put him in that'. You just can't! You can give me your chicken and I will turn it into chicken - whatever you want. I'll turn into a chicken cake if you want! Just tell me what you want, man. That's all it is. That's all I'm asking: tell me what you want and let me do it because I sure can."
After spending many years working under the Rusev name, he now is facing the challenge of building the Miro name. He went on to say that he doesn't think it will be a very difficult task as he's been building that name since being let go from WWE.

"I don't think it's difficult at all," Miro revealed. "I feel like ever since I got let go, I did well on my downtime. I started my Twitch and promoted my own channel. I started doing some YouTube, started promoting myself there and those channels grew so fast, and it shows just how amazing our audience is. The wrestling crowd doesn't forget anybody. If you've done good, they will remember you, and I hope that is the case. It has been the case so far because when people see me on the street, they don't call me the 'R-Word' [Rusev] anymore. Everybody calls me Miro, and this has been just over one week. So, I think this is great, and also being with a company that actually promotes my stuff.
"AEW promotes my YouTube channel and promotes my social media," Miro added. "They want me to do good because this is the way of the future, man. All these dinosaurs - we don't need masked dinosaurs, we need Miro people. We need a new age that is going to take AEW to the mainstream. We need people like this, and I feel this is why I came in - because of my social media game, my video game, my name overall, everything, it's higher than other people in AEW and that's why I want to contribute. I want to bring more eyes to the product because essentially, they're going to see how good I am, and that's what I want to do."

I can't wait for this guy's AEW run. He's gonna be ridiculously over when crowds return.

This and the Thunder Rosa interview really explain why it does feel like a buffet. Most of the experience is the prime rib down at the end of the buffet, but a couple things are the moldy fruitcake that has been sitting on the dessert table for a couple years. I am fine with them trying stuff to see what works as that is what they should do. But when things do not work they need to stop doing them. That is the hard part about being a boss, but it is reality. My main problem on here is some people will not admit some of the stuff they do are in fact misses and that those things should be actively criticized. Feedback is essential for a company to correct things.

Yeah, I mean I get people have different tastes. I do not think I have ever said otherwise.

There were people who apparently liked Hornswoggle, Perry Saturn in a dress, Yamaguchi-san choppy choppy pee pee, Katie Vick, Dr. Heiney, John Cena, etc etc etc. I get that those people exist. Now, I do not understand how they exist, but I know they do. Other than Cena, those things did not stop me from overall liking the product at the time they happened. That does not mean they are not worthy of criticism right? If this forum existed in 1998, a lot of us would be praising Steve Austin and the product overall but heavily criticizing the Brawl for All right? What is the difference between that and saying some of the things AEW does are bad?

perry saturn and moppy was funny as hell when i was a child. The attitude era got it right. It was edgy enough for adults and teens AND childish enough that kids can get involved. i recall you saying you weren't a fan of the AE, but that's why it was pop culture back then

did you watch it? he did not apologise like you put it. he did not take any words back. so keep being salty lmao
He absolutely apologized lol. And whos salty? Because I point out the obvious that the VPs told him to chill on demeaning their boy? That makes me salty? Alright lol. I like Miro, hes one of the ex WWE guys they should have signed. But sweet Lord, just reading the internet and Reddit you think he was Andre, Hogan, Rock, and Austin in one package. Its a little comical. Half of the most over period in his career can be attributed to Aiden English for Gods sakes.

You are remembering someone else. I was a huge fan of the AE. I just can admit some of stuff they did in it was horrible, like the things I said.

Now, I have to point out I said Perry Saturn in a dress, NOT Perry Saturn and the mop. You are arguing against something I never said :)

If you can find a post of mine where I said I was not a fan of the AE in general, please let me know so I can report someone hijacking my account.

I think one person's "variety" is another person's "lack of identity". It all comes down to preference
