Miro Off TV After Refusing To Do A Job – There has been a lot of talk about Miro’s status in AEW as he hasn’t been used very often this year and his wife, CJ Perry, formerly known as Lana, recently made fans speculate about him returning to WWE.
Miro hasn’t wrestled since he, Darby Allin, and Sting defeated The House of Black at September’s All Out pay-per-view.
As previously reported, Miro is ready to wrestle again and be back on television. Although AEW has presented plans, he didn’t like what was pitched and turned them down, so AEW has kept him off television until they can agree on creative.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that they had an idea for him to do a match at Full Gear, but he turned it down.
“In September, Tony Khan came to Miro, and he had this idea which would build to a match on the November pay-per-view (Full Gear), and he (Miro) didn’t want to do it.”
Meltzer pointed out that some who come from WWE are leery about doing jobs in AEW, and it becomes hard to book them if they don’t want to lose in feuds.
“But anyway, they went through, and now November’s over, and now we’re in the new cycle, and they were going to bring him back and try to come up with ideas for him. And they very well may, and then his wife comes in and says, ‘Rusev Day’s gonna come back (to WWE), everybody goes back to WWE.’
Meltzer continued, “It’s like, if I’m Tony Khan at this point, given everything that’s happened, and the wife of one of the wrestlers goes and says, essentially everyone goes back to WWE, it’s kinda like, ‘Why waste my time pushing this guy, I’ve got 100 guys on the roster who want to be here, and now you’ve got these guys who wanna be in WWE.”
Meltzer mentioned how Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland had chances to return to WWE but didn’t.
“A lot of the guys wanted to leave. It’s like, the guys who sign there, if they’re guys who really want to be there (in WWE), and just got fired and everything but can’t wait to get hired back. I don’t know that those guys have been that beneficial.”
