"You break my shit now I break you and push your
shit in way up past your lungs! GAME OVAAAAAAAH!!!"
I mean there's already Lance Archer, Brodie Lee, and Brian Cage. AEW's full with monster heels atm. But Miro's current gimmick is kinda dumb I'll admit.Miro should’ve been a sadistic monster.
instead he’s a guy wearing sweat pants who’s personality is apparently entirely based on being a gamer.
Cmon man. Total Divas is 99% scripted bullshit, there's no way to tell if he didn't love gaming by being on a TV show with a script, lmao.wtf?
Fighting over broken arcade machines is the shit clowns like Sonny Michel, Jungle Boy and Orange Cassidy should be doing. Miro should have been the one going the limit with Cody last night. Actually Miro should have been the one to squash Cody weeks ago. Its what a man his size and with his name recognition should be doing. Miro was on Total Divas for years and was an expensive car driving "alpha male" with a hot wife and who doesn't give a fuck, video games and all that other bullshit is not his personality.

idk what you've been watching but Mox, Brodie, and FTR have all been great.People always shit on McMahon for not pushing people etc. Yet once these stars are out in the deep end they flounder. Miro, Brodie, Moxley, FTR etc they’ve all been disappointing, yet internet geeks hype them up as the next big thing. Vince recognises talent, he knows who’s a mid card act and who’s a main eventer. Cody is a mid card guy but he desperately wants to prove to everyone he’s a main eventer. It’s hurting the show now.
At this point AEW is a bullshit promotion. TNA might’ve been shit but they had years of great wrestling and work. AEW has done more embarrassing stuff in its first year than TNA did it’s whole tenure. It’s a absolute joke to even consider them competition.
What they’re doing with Miro just shows how utterly clueless they are. There’s no defending it.
This is probably the goofy indy influence that AEW wrestlers have going back to Shikira, Guerilla wrestling, etc... When you're supposed to be anti-establishment but you make the characters more cartoonish than 80s/early 90s wrestlers where Bruce Prichard would be proud there's a problem. I hope nobody in AEW has been a Fireman in their life cause that guy would be stuck with going to the ring in that outfit and hosing the non-existant crowd.Much like Sonny Kiss AEW need to realise that they can't take a portion of someones personality and identify them with it.
With Sonny Kiss he's flamboyantly homosexual and AEW kind of offensively made that his entire gimmick. "Okay here comes the gay guy" but when you listen to Sonny do an interview he's actually quite a funny and endearing guy who is passionate about wrestling but he can't show that because Tony is so desperate to just forcefeed the fact he's gay down everyone's throats.
Rusev is the same, being a gamer is his ENTIRE identity in AEW because he has a Twitch channel but then you hit up the guys Instagram and it's really mostly him living a celebrity lifestyle. Photos of him on what looks to be a private plane, out on the beach/restaurant/bar, hanging out in what looks to be a beautiful home, sports, nice cars, lots of stuff with his hot wife, fashion stuff etc. Only maybe three posts about gaming in a year so whilst it's part of his life it's seemingly quite a small part.
So here's what you do, you want heel Rusev? His gimmick is he's all about the money. Debut night for him there's a mysterious Rolls Royce in the parking lot which JR brings up saying there's a mystery man in a 700,000 dollar car in the parking lot and Alex Marvez is out there waiting for the person to emerge. Eventually Rusev comes out to fireworks, light show etc and is revealed as the big signing for AEW, Rusev comes out saying he's signed a deal for more money than ever before and that he's gunning for that AEW World Heavyweight Title because the title means more dates, more tours, more competition and ultimately more money.
You could have him dunk on midcard guys by just no showing his matches against them because the "winners purse isn't enough for me to even get out of bed" and generally just cutting promos doing the shit he'd do every day. Eventually someone (Moxley most likely) gets fed up with the situation at hand, challenges Rusev saying that it'd be the biggest moneymaking match of his life but he'll lose, Rusev accepts, wins the strap and suddenly you have a big rich alpha dog with a hot wife who is the polar opposite to 90% of AEW fans/wrestlers as champion and he can just shit all over them and their roster.
Rusev upset over an arcade machine that is worth 1500 dollars max (And that's if it's a rare one) is absolutely ridiculous when his Instagram has photos of him gifting his wife with Louis Vuitton stuff (Plain white T-Shirts start at like 2 grand in that shop)
Have you ever stopped to think that maybe he likes working with Kip and Penelope? Yall care a lot about where you wanted your favorites to be but forget what they might like to do. He's been great to watch and it comes from someone who has always hated Rusev.
