Fans were disappointed after Rusev, now going by the name Miro, didn’t appear as a mystery entrant in the Casino Battle Royale at AEW’s All Out pay-per-view this past Saturday. Now though, fans of AEW are rejoicing as The Bulgarian Brute has made his debut for the company on tonight’s episode of Dynamite.
He’d be revealed as the best man for the upcoming kayfabe wedding between Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford, and appears to be using the nickname “The Best Man.” You can watch Kip Sabian introducing him below.
Upon entering the ring, Miro would cut a passionate promo where he took a shot at his former employer for the lack of opportunities avalaible.
Rusev hasn’t wrestled since February this year when he teamed with Humberto Carrillo in a losing effort against Angel Garza and Bobby Lashley on Raw. He was then part of the mass releases on April 15th that WWE made due to budget cuts. He would go on to jokingly declare he had retired from wrestling and was instead a professional Twitch streamer.
