Miro showed us just how good a wrestler he is. The Bulgarian put on a very dominant show and established himself as a powerhouse. 

Formerly known as Rusev, the big man nearly had an injury scare. As he was tossed over the top rope by Janella, he landed straight on his feet and began limping immediately. However, he soon snapped out of it and continued the fight. 

Before long, Sabian and Miro took out the team on the other corner and had the upper hand. Janela tried turning the tides once again but was taken out of the equation in the process.

Catching Sonny Kiss at an undesirable position, Miro immediately locked him in a cruel submission move. WWE fans may know this move as the ‘Accolade.’

Miro made a statement by winning via submission

Unable to hang on or resist the pain, Kiss tapped out. The strain on his back became even harder to endure as the Bulgarian held on for a good 6 seconds before letting his opponent go.

Miro made his official AEW debut last week at Dynamite, being introduced as the best man for Kip Sabian’s Wedding. Since then, fans have been awaiting his debut. This is solely because we may finally see Miro at his full potential.

As Rusev, he was always pushed down by WWE. His famous ‘Rusev Day’ gimmick was repressed by Vince McMahon and other WWE writers. This is the main motivation for Miro’s hate towards his former company.

He was released by WWE earlier this year as part of the budget cuts due to the pandemic. His surprising AEW debut got the company a lot of praise and excitement. AEW may show the world just how talented Miro is, and he won’t let fans down for sure.
