This week's AEW Dynamite had a pleasant surprise for wrestling fans, as former WWE Superstar Rusev — now going by Miro — made his arrival for the company. The former United States Champion was released by the company back in mid-April, despite being a fan favorite for his "Rusev Day" persona. "The Best Man" wasted no time taking shots at his former employers, saying he was done going after brass rings. Fans quickly took to social media to celebrate the big move, and speculate over just how well the Bulgarian star could do in his new home.
What do you think of Miro's arrival in AEW? Do you think he'll be a future AEW World Champion! Share your thoughts in the comments and check out some of the best reactions in the list below!
So Long, Rusevprevnext
The thing I like about AEW is they keep surprises as fucking surprises and they don't announce it for a ratings boost.
No one expected Rusev.
Well played AEW. Well played.#AEWDynamite— IBeast (@x_Beast17_x) September 10, 2020
The Best Man
Talk about a needle-shifting talent.
If people aren’t already watching AEW, Miro - formerly known as Rusev - is the man to get those eyes on the product.#AEWDynamite— Gary Cassidy (@WrestlingGary) September 10, 2020
Give Him Belts
Of everyone that deserves their "Fuck WWE" promo it's probably Miro. But anyway, look at this fit. The blonde hair. The Gucci shirt. Skin on point. Give him the belt right now.— 🐯TIGER DRIVER🐯 (@TigerDriver9X) September 10, 2020
