Former WWE Superstar Miro made his AEW debut this past week on Dynamite, which was received very well by fans. On his Saturday Night Special podcast, Chris Jericho talked about Miro and said that WWE will regret firing Miro.
“I’ve always been a fan of his. He’s another guy, who, for whatever reason, fell through the cracks there [in WWE] and they are going to regret letting him go.”
Jericho then revealed that it was he who wrote the controversial line in Miro’s promo during his AEW debut, where he talked about spending ten years “under the same house, under the same glass ceiling” and [chasing] after an imaginary brass ring.
“When he indirectly mentioned WWE, talking about the glass ceiling and brass ring, that was actually my line. He couldn’t believe he could say that on Live television. When he asked me, ‘can we actually say that?’ I was like, ‘yes, you can say whatever you want here [in AEW]’.
Jericho then said that AEW does not want to constantly take shots at his former workplace.
“I’m glad Miro came in and gave his mission statement. That said, we’ll just leave it there now. This is not a place that wants to constantly bash another place.
“Obviously, when you come from another company, you have to acknowledge the fact that you came from there, because there’s a history. But then you move on,” added Jericho, the first-ever AEW World Champion.
He revealed that AEW had internal discussions of hiring Miro since he parted ways with WWE in June.
“We had discussed Miro coming in a few months earlier. However, we were all wondering how to create a spot for him [on the roster]. We needed to find a storyline for him, to ensure he’s just not going to be hanging around. We needed to find a meaningful spot for him.”
