Miro (Rusev) made his return to professional wrestling with AEW this week, which came as a major shocker.
Miro debuted as Kip Sabian’s Best Man, and cut a threatening promo, establishing himself as a major name on Dynamite.
Fightful shared details about Miro’s contract with AEW, which is reportedly a long-term one. However, Miro is not exclusive to AEW and is free to work with New Japan Pro Wrestling and a few other independent promotions.
“The contract does allow for Miro to work New Japan Pro Wrestling and some independent dates, but prohibits other American televised dates, so New Japan USA would be off the table.”
Although Miro can work in NJPW, he won’t be able to perform for the company in the USA.
Several stars in AEW including Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho have some sort of deals with NJPW in place, and Miro will join this list.
Although traveling to Japan seems out of question at this point, Miro will surely be eager to compete against the best talent present in the Japanese promotion.
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, who signed with Impact Wrestling recently, have similar deals that will allow them to appear for NJPW.
