Former WWE US Champion Debuts On AEW
Former WWE Main Event superstar, and United States Champion, Rusev made his debut tonight on All Elite Wrestling's Dynamite.
The former Rusev will be using his real name, Miro, with AEW. He's been using his legal name on his Twitch channel online since his release from WWE in April.
Miro's Twitch channel features him playing video games, commenting on pop culture, and talking directly to fans. During one of his online streams in July, Miro appeared to announce his retirement from pro wrestling. Many were under the belief that with him being "retired", he was not even a possibility to appear on AEW programming, which made his debut even more impactful.
During his WWE career, Rusev was a major player. He participated in multiple pay-per-view main events, won the United States Championship three times, and was ranked as high as #8 on the Pro Wrestling Insider Top 500 Wrestlers.
