In his promo, Rusev addressed his old company, WWE. To be fair, the company had it coming.

“Ten years in the same house, under the same glass ceiling with imaginary brass ring. Well, you can take your brass ring and shove it up your a**.”

On top of that, Rusev said that AEW has the capacity to identify “Elite” Pro Wrestlers. If you read between the lines, it’s a clear shot at WWE for not being able to recognize the talent that can move their company forward.

There is no doubt that Rusev is more than relieved to be a part of AEW. Ever since he quit WWE, speculations have been that he will join AEW. However, for a while, it did not happen. Soon, the audience moved on to the other things happening in the wrestling universe.

WWE should have taken Rusev Day chants seriously

Interestingly enough, when the former WWE Superstar made his AEW debut, the audience was chanting “Miro Day”. This has a nice ring to it but it brings up a feeling of déjà vu.

There was a time when WWE was under-utilizing Rusev. He had to sit backstage while his audience kept chanting “Rusev Day”. In fact, Vince McMahon shut him down by saying the audience was messing with him and mocking him.

Unfortunately for Mr. McMahon, the audience wasn’t mocking him. In fact, it is possible that Tony Khan will make sure Rusev (Miro) rises to the level that he wasn’t allowed to reach in WWE.

This entire acquisition is rather similar to that of Jon Moxley (Dean Ambrose). His fans are eagerly waiting to see Miro back in the ring, destroying other wrestlers.
