Major Former WWE Star Debuts On AEW Dynamite

A hugely popular former WWE star made their long-awaited AEW debut last night on Dynamite as Kip Sabian’s best man.

After the mass WWE releases back on April 15th, dubbed Black Wednesday, the vast majority of those wrestlers released have found homes elsewhere, primarily in AEW or Impact Wrestling.

Looking at the list, there had been one very prominent exception. Until now. After over five months of television, Miro (formerly known as Rusev) made his AEW debut.

Miro has taken on the role as ‘Best Man’ for the forthcoming wedding of Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford. Sabian had announced he would be revealing who he had chosen for the role on this week’s Dynamite and fans had speculated, more in hope than expectation, that Miro would fill the role.

He had previously said he was retired from wrestling and would be pursuing a career as a full time Twitch streamer but fans took that news with a pinch of salt.

Now the newly bleached-blonde ‘best man’ will play a role in AEW’s first nuptials.

Could we see him make his presence felt at the event in a bigger way than just looking after the rings. After all, wrestling weddings are famous for going off without a hitch, isn’t that right?
