Rusev was released from WWE alongside a number of other stars back in April as part of the company’s COVID cuts and has since moved over to AEW where he is known as Miro.
Miro was part of an interview with Chris Van Vliet this week where the question was raised regarding the recent controversial Lana/Liv Morgan love triangle.
The former WWE star revealed that the company had no long-term plan for the storyline and that Liv Morgan was only meant to be part of a one-time surprise pop.
“No plan — [a] one-time pop. A lot of things were made for one time pops. People thought it was the worst thing and it meant all these things. No, it was a one-time thing that was going to get people talking.”
“At that time, the showrunner [Paul Heyman was serving as executive director] was about getting people talking and controversy. That’s how the whole thing happened, the Bobby thing. It was about the controversy and all that. We achieved that.”
“Unfortunately, now there was no follow-up. That’s what happens when you change people all the time. There is no follow-through. You revealed CJ to leave her husband and be the worst, she’s still the baddest heel on their freaking show, and she did all this for what? To throw everything away the year before. Like, nobody remembers that.”
