Chris Jericho believes WWE will regret losing Miro (Rusev) to AEW

Chris Jericho gave his thoughts on the AEW debut of Miro, formerly known as Rusev in WWE.

Miro did so last week on Dynamite where he was revealed as Kip Sabian’s best man for his upcoming wedding. He did a promo on the show and took some minor jabs at WWE in the process.

The former AEW World Heavyweight Champion commented on Miro’s debut during a Saturday Night Special live stream on his YouTube channel.

“I think it’s great to have him, we had discussed having Miro come in a few months earlier when he was released. The only thing all of us were thinking was, ‘we just have to think of a spot for him.’ We need to find a place where you’re not just going to bring him in and have him hanging around, you don’t want that. I think it’s perfect, “The Best Man” thing, it’s not just a one-shot deal, it’s a gimmick. He’s “The Best Man,” he’s the best man at everything it’ll almost be like a Mr. Perfect thing.”

Jericho stated that Miro is a great funny guy and that it’s cool he has joined AEW. He stated that Miro kind of gave his mission statement during the promo.

Jericho brought up how Miro indirectly mentioned WWE by stating things like glass ceiling and brass ring. He took credit for Miro saying that they could ‘take the brass ring and shove it’ as he came up with that line.

“He couldn’t believe he’d be allowed to say it. He’s like, ‘Really? Can I say it?’ I’m like, yeah, you can say whatever you want here.’ No problems here, baby!”

Jericho later stated that “I’ve always been a fan of his and I think he’s another guy for some reason, whatever reason, kind of fell through the cracks there that they’re going to regret letting go. We got him and we’re excited.”
