The former Rusev made his AEW debut this past Wednesday on Dynamite as Kip Sabian’s best man for his upcoming wedding with Penelope Ford. Now going by Miro, he’d use the opportunity to shoot on WWE by telling them to “take your brass ring and shove it up your a**.”
Often when AEW brings in new talent, they will sign a short term deal, even an ex-WWE wrestler like Matt Cardona only initially signed for five dates. It has, though, been confirmed that in Miro’s case, he has signed a multi-year contract. He is also permitted to take indie bookings and wrestle on shows as long as they are not televised. Most significantly, he can also wrestle for New Japan, which is big money making perk reserved for top stars such as Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley. His AEW dates will always be the priority, so it’s unlikely he’ll work tours, just big weekend shows.
This type of deal shows how highly AEW thinks of Miro’s, and how much they wanted him to sign. He has already helped prove his worth by aiding AEW in delivering its highest viewership in 2020.
