Miro Update On Extended AEW Absence

Miro in the ring

A new report provides fresh information on Miro’s absence from AEW television.

Back in September 2020, Miro officially became All Elite and arrived in the company to a great deal of fanfare, serving as Kip Sabian’s “best man.” When his alliance with Sabian came to an end, Miro found his footing as a singles star, capturing the TNT Championship from Darby Allin in May 2021.

Fans were delighted at Miro’s success, with many hoping that he’d ascend to new heights and become a more prominent figure than he’d been during his time as Rusev in WWE. However, despite his popularity, the star has wrestled only 29 matches in two years with AEW, and only four of those matches have taken place in all of 2022. He last appeared in an AEW ring when he teamed with Darby Allin and Sting to defeat the House of Black at AEW All Out in September.

Miro himself recently poked fun at his absence from television, and now a new report provides more information about why the man once known as “God’s Favorite Champion” hasn’t been featured as of late.

According to a report from Fightful Select, the star’s absence has nothing to do with injury or lack of wanting to perform. Sources within AEW indicated to Fightful that Miro is both healthy and wants to actively compete, but there haven’t been creative plans available for him. His last appearance prior to All Out was at Forbidden Door in June, and while it looked like there may have been creative plans for him in the summer, those plans never came to pass.

The report continued, noting that there were plans in place within AEW to have creative conversations with Miro, but those conversations haven’t happened yet. Sources who spoke with Fightful indicated that the star is eager to return to competing in the ring.
