Miro Made His AEW Debut
Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford joined Tony Schiavone in the ring. Kip said that if wanted any member of the announce team out here it would be JR and told Tony to leave. Sabian claimed that everyone wanted to know who the best man was for their wedding. Kip’s very large friend “Puff” came down to the entrance ramp but Sabian told him to go backstage because he just said he was the “best” for subscribing to his Twitch channel.
Brian Pillman Jr. made his way to the ring and thanked Sabian for making him the best man. Kip said he told Pillman “you are the best, man” and that they are not even friends. Sabian told Pillman that he hoped his birthday sucked as he was leaving the ring.
Finally, Miro (formerly known as Rusev in WWE) made his way to the ring and the crowd erupted. The crowd chanted “Miro Day!” and Miro thanked them. Miro said that he spent 10 years under the same glass ceiling and you can take that imaginary brass ring and shove it up your ass. Miro ended his promo by saying “my name is Miro and I am All Elite”.
Opinion: Much like Cesaro now, I always thought Miro (Rusev) was underused in WWE and I hope we finally get to see what he is capable of now that he is in All Elite Wrestling.

FTR claimed that they were now the locker room leaders and the top guys in AEW now. Dax told Jurassic Express that they will face them next week and that if Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus win they will get a title shot. Harwood called Jungle Boy a “cosplay Tarzan” and Luchasaurus a “dumb ass dinosaur”.
Jurassic Express got in the ring and a brawl almost broke out. FTR quickly retreated with Tully to the outside as Marko Stunt grabbed the ice cooler.
