In a recent interview with Austin Lane of ESPN690 and Action Sports Jax, Lane asked Miro that why he changed the design of the TNT Championship to which he replied that he made it to honor his hometown in Bulgaria and how much it means to him.

He further added that he didn’t want the “filthy” title which Darby Allin was carrying around during his tenure with the TNT Championship, saying that he needed a new fresh look for the belt.

“I wanna make it mine; my own. This is the logo, my hometown, Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Which is the sixth oldest living city in Bulgaria, and I wanted to honor that. I came from that. I was born there; I love my hometown. But also I didn’t want the filthy title that Darby Allin had, and I didn’t want none of that stuff. I wanted my own title, I wanted to be fresh, clean. It’s a present for me because I am the redeemer, I am God’s favorite champion.”
