In December, it was reported that Miro, a professional wrestler in All Elite Wrestling (AEW), turned down creative plans that AEW President Tony Khan had for his return. The initial story indicated that Khan approached Miro in September 2022 with the idea that would have built up to Miro having a match at the Full Gear pay-per-view event in November.

However, Miro was not interested in the proposed concept, and no further details were provided. A recent update from the Wrestling Observer has shed more light on the situation, revealing that Miro rejected a storyline that would have seen him lose a Battle Royal, with him and Adam Page being the last two competitors.

The Battle Royal in question took place during the Grand Slam edition of AEW Rampage, where Adam Page ultimately won by last eliminating Rush. Page's victory led to him facing Rush on the Third Anniversary edition of AEW Dynamite on October 5th, which he also won, becoming the new #1 contender to then-AEW World Champion Jon Moxley.

The win over Rush earned Page a title shot on the Title Tuesday Dynamite on October 18th, but Moxley retained his championship.

Miro Takes on "Yellowbird" Voice Role Amid AEW Break

According to the report, Miro still has around three years left on his AEW contract.

He recently spent about a month in Bulgaria with his wife, CJ Perry, accompanying him for part of the trip. Miro announced this week that he has taken on a voice acting role in the animated short "Yellowbird" for HBO Max, now available to stream.

Miro expressed his honor in being part of the project in a tweet, describing it as "very near to my heart." Despite his recent foray into voice acting, Miro is reportedly eager to return to the wrestling ring and is not being held back by any injuries.

His last wrestling appearance was on September 4th, when he teamed up with Sting and Darby Allin to defeat the House of Black at the All Out event. With Miro's desire to get back in the ring and his ongoing AEW contract, it remains to be seen how his wrestling career will progress and what creative plans may be in store for him.
