Really? WWE is the biggest and most successful wrestling company in the world but that does not mean that they are perfect. There are a lot of things that take place in WWE that leaves you wondering what in the world they are thinking. Sometimes that is quite the problem if WWE decides that something is important, and that was the case again with a pretty big released name.
Earlier this year, WWE released dozens of wrestlers from the company and shook up the wrestling world in a big way. It was clear that some of these wrestlers were going to be brought into another company and that they would get another chance somewhere else. That was the case with Miro, formerly known as Rusev, who has signed with AEW and is now having a lot to say.
Miro was a guest on a recent edition of Talk Is Jericho and told a story about getting in trouble in WWE for cutting his hair. At one point Miro was getting ready to go away for shoulder surgery and was losing all of his matches. Before he was leaving, Miro was facing Big Show, who gave him several chokeslams before getting the pin. The idea to teach Miro a lesson for having his hair cut without telling WWE in the first place. Miro was not angry at Big Show and said he would ask before he did something like this again.
Big Show and Miro have done some things before. Check out their work together:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that does not sound good, but at the same time, WWE is a company built on presentation. If Miro’s presentation is suddenly different, it could change things with merchandising deals or contracts while also making some of their products feel out of date. I don’t agree with WWE being upset, but I can get where they are coming from.
