Miro on how his relationship with Lana started, WWE management did not like Aiden English



AEW star Miro is the guest on the latest video posted on Chris Van Vliet's YouTube channel. The former WWE star talked about everything from his run in WWE, being unhappy, how he got into AEW and more.

Here are some highlights:

Miro addressed the controversy on why he wore what he wore on his AEW debut: “My debut did not happen last minute. I knew it was coming. I had no idea it was so hard to buy designer clothes, or clothes in general. I’m 280. I had a plan. It’s just that my plan was not fulfilled. I couldn’t get the clothes. I tried to get this stylist to do it for me. It was too late for him because of my size. So, I found a couple pieces in Miami. My friend picked them up and sent them to me and I had my outfit.”

Miro was asked if he hurt his leg in the match last week on AEW TV: “I’m good. I’m pushing through everything. You can’t hurt me. It was an accident. I thought good ole Joey Janella or whatever the frick his name is, he just hits me. I’m standing on the apron and for no reason he comes across and hits me. He knows that I thought he should know better than this. He charged at us and he ducks out of the way and it was very uncomfortable and I landed on it. But, I’m good.”

Miro talked about the start of his relationship with Lana: “Just spending time together and bonding over different things. The first bond was because in Eastern Europe, she lived in Russia, I lived in Bulgaria so it’s very similar. She’s been to Bulgaria as well with dancing competitions before. So we bonded over that. Then we started going to church together on Sundays. So we bonded over that as well. I never had any intention of becoming something because she was a great friend of mine and I did not want to ruin that by any means. But fate had something else.”

Miro was asked how is Miro different from Rusev: “I don’t want to talk about Rusev. Who cares about that guy. I am The Best Man.”

Miro said there were no plans for Liv Morgan and Lana in the storyline: “There was no plan. It was a one time pop. It was something to get people talking. At that time, the showrunner was about getting people to talk and controversy. That’s when the whole thing happened. We achieved that. Unfortunately, there was no follow through. That’s what happens when you change people all the time. You build CJ to leave her husband and be the worst and now she is doing all this for what? To throw away everything we did for the whole year before, like nobody remembers that?”

Miro was asked if it was difficult to watch Bobby Lashley be all over his wife’s storyline? “That’s a question you would have to ask her and him because I wasn’t kissing him. They were told to use real aggressive kissing. Was it good to watch? No, I never watched it. At the same time I understand it's a work. We are actors. When I get asked this, I always respond the same way. I say, ask her, she is the one kissing him. Ask him, he’s married and has kids. They watch the show. Ask them. Don’t worry about me.”

Miro was asked if there were plans for Rusev day: “There were no plans for Rusev day to begin with. It brings me down because they really dislike Aiden [English] and I told him that because everybody was scared to tell him. I said I’m going to tell him because we are trying to highlight Aiden and they told us no. Aiden was supposed to just die. They pulled me aside and said we can’t highlight Aiden. How does that make sense? I was so mad. Why do you stop the wrestler from getting the reaction that we want. That’s what pisses me off. It’s about him stopping him being showcased.”
