This week’s Figure Four Daily with Bryan Alvarez and Lance Storm is a Q&A episode where Storm answers questions that were sent in by subscribers.
Storm gives his thoughts on AEW’s first year, the most underrated members of the Hart Family (the answer will surprise you), memories of the famous Jim Cornette drive-thru at a Wendy’s restaurant and much more.
Storm also gave his thoughts on the current direction for Miro in All Elite Wrestling. Storm noted that he’s not a fan of what they are doing with him but he also acknowledges that they may not be targeting viewers that are around his age.
Miro’s character has received mixed reactions from fans on social media with some wanting to see him show a more aggressive side like he did during his early days in WWE and others are fine with him showing off a light-hearted version of himself because it’s closer to who he is in real life.
Storm said the following about Miro in AEW: “I personally am not a fan of his current direction of his character. But I don’t necessarily represent the AEW fan base. This is where it’s a real shame that we are still in pandemic conditions because if we had full arenas, you would get a far better feel on how the Miro presentation is working. That’s the real drawback to not having many or any fans in the building. That was always the barometer to which you gauge what was working. To me, I’ve always liked the destructive big powerhouse that was Rusev that could be Miro now. Tying him up in a wedding angle and playing video games, which may be who he really is, I’m not a big fan of. I think it’s very much like when they did the personality type profile thing with Finn Balor in NXT when they showed him playing with his Legos. I’m like, ok, he may really play with Legos, but the demon Finn Balor shouldn’t be playing with Legos. I thought he was a cool badass and now I think he is a guy that plays with Legos. Miro, again, maybe he is doing it to promote his Twitch and his other interests rather than his AEW interests, I don’t know. But, I would prefer to see big badass Miro rather than hanging out with Kip Sabian playing video games. But again, I’m in that over, just barely over 50+ demo, so maybe I’m not the guy they are targeting.”
