Miro, formerly known in WWE as Rusev, has been a member of the All Elite Wrestling roster since last September. And while he hasn't suffered a pinfall or submission loss inside of an AEW ring, his run with the company has been heavily criticized so far because of his lackadaisical persona, his storyline surrounding Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford and his complete absence from any of the championship pictures. But that could potentially all change this week, as Miro will challenge Darby Allin for the TNT Championship after severing his ties to Sabian. Fans were tweeting about the matches long before AEW Dynamite began, hoping to see "The Bulgarian Brute" pick up a dominant win.
Do you think Miro will walk out of Daily's Place as a champion tonight? Let us know in the comments below!

Just idly thinking about how Miro was put on this planet to yeet fuck out of Darby Allin— Sidgwick (@MSidgwick) May 12, 2021
If I were in charge, Miro would break Darby in half tonight to win the TNT Title.— Armadillo Dave: SAW DC (@S_ATL_Wrestling) May 12, 2021

Darby Fires Back
You say Darby’s this & Darby’s that I know exactly who I am.
Do you know who you are Miro? You show up the hottest free agent just to talk about video games and be some best man. You’ve gotta be the most underwhelming Thing I’ve seen.
You ain’t taking shit away from me. https://t.co/yMR9K5TcEN— DARBY ALLIN (@DarbyAllin) May 9, 2021
