Miro made his AEW debut last year and there were high expectations as he proved to be a great performer. Miro eventually lived up to his potential after defeating Darby Allin for the TNT Championship. Since then he has been booked as a very strong champion.
Prior to AEW, Miro worked in WWE as Rusev. During his time in WWE, Miro didn’t have a very memorable run for most of his time in the company.
while speaking on fangin n bangin The podcast, WWE veteran Gangrel who trained Miro when he first came to America, talks about Miro’s insane dedication to training while holding multiple jobs.
Gangrel revealed that in addition to training twice a day, Miro worked as a taxi driver and as a food delivery boy in the evenings and would take naps in a train or car before arriving for training during night sessions. was.
“Miro is so dedicated. He came – we had morning and night classes at Knox Pro in California. Miro, he was in both of those classes, but in the middle of it all, he was literally bouncing or taxiing. Then, he Was delivering food on the lunch shift and things like that,” recalls Gangrel. “So he would do morning classes. He would work all night, pull there, take an hour-long nap in the car, train — and when I trained, I was like some boot camp stuff. I mean, I was going, “Are you injured or are you hurt?! If you’re hurt, get up! If you’re injured, go to the doctor and get a note, come on!’
Miro’s love and dedication to pro wrestling has really paid off as his current run at AEW finally showed how good he really can be. We’ll have to see who will be Miro’s next challenger and how long his title reign will last.
