Miro is a popular AEW Superstar and he spoke about the real-life tension that existed within The League of Nations. Miro was known as Rusev in the WWE. In 2015, Rusev was placed in a faction called The League of Nations. The faction included Sheamus, Wade Barrett, and Alberto Del Rio.
The faction was mainly created to spoil Roman Reigns rise to the top in the WWE in 2015. Miro appeared on The Kurt Angle Show to speak about The League of Nations. He also spoke about his run in the WWE and stated that the League of Nations was a missed opportunity.
Miro Talks About His Time with The WWE, and The League of Nations
“Man, talk about what a great waste of opportunity the League of Nations is,” Miro said. “We were told we were going to be put together and nobody told us we were going to be a punching bag for Roman Reigns, that’s the only reason we’re doing this.
I thought looking at three former champions, big guys, strong guys, international guys, we haven’t had anything like this on the roster. On night number 2, we lost to Roman Reigns 4 on 1 and ever since that night we knew we were just destined to do this, to do just nothing but jobs”.
Sheamus stated during interviews that it was a bad idea to put four strong heels in a single group. According to Sheamus, it was ‘a really weak faction’. Miro then shared his WrestleMania 32 movement where he shared a ring with multiple Hall of Famers.
“It is what it is, it still got us a WrestleMania match with The New Day,” Miro said. “At that time we had a lot of problems internally within the group so there was a lot of fighting going on and I’m not proud of that by any means.
It was so messed up that even practices, you know, you have to talk about the matches every now and then and you couldn’t even get all of us together. It was such a disaster and then the match day came and even before the match, we almost got in a fight within us.
Right before we walked out, we almost got in a fight, the four of us. We went out there and had the match, we also had a bad attitude like why’s these Hall of Famers coming in and doing all these maneuvers on us. But at the end of the day, I love Steve Austin, I wanted to take the Stunner and I got to take it. The people loved it, we won whatever, then when the music hit and Shawn [came down] and everything, people loved it.
