During his time away from wrestling, former WWE superstar Rusev, now known by the moniker of Miro, is having a great time interacting with fans via his official Twitch handle. Here are some of they key highlights from some of the Q&A, and largely centers around his relationship with wife Lana and how it came to be.
Dating a work colleague
This was always the thing about me and CJ, I never wanted to date CJ. So, I was working there, and I was specifically focused on my wrestling. I did not care about any of the new women, I did not wanna interact. I did not want to have anything with the new recruits, all recruits, I did not want to date anybody at work. I was strictly focused on working, and that’s it.
His roommate being interested in Lana
My roommate at the time, I’m not gonna say who he is… uh, maybe I shouldn’t have said that. A friend of mine was into CJ. He was really into CJ, and I said, “Hey, if you wanna go, do your thing man! I’m working with her and that’s all.” I don’t care about anything else, we’re great friends, and I did not want to ruin our friendship, and our work, for the sake of, me trying to be with her.
Having heat in WWE
Why would I have heat with anybody? I mean, you see me how I am, do you think, I will go out there and have heat? I’m not a confrontational person. Yes, I stand up for myself. Yes, I stand up for my wife. Yes, I stand up for what I believe in. But if you don’t believe in the same thing man, it’s your freaking company. Do whatever you want, I can’t force you, I can’t force you, so I don’t think having heat with anybody has anything to do with it.
We got heat when we got… married or what not, the engagement thing. We got a lot of heat there, but everybody knows that. That’s not a secret to anybody.
