In January of 2021, The Undertaker had gone down hard on new generation wrestlers by stating this when asked if he still follows professional wrestling on a regular basis: “I tried. It's difficult right now, for me, because the product has changed so much.
It's a bit soft. I'll probably piss off a lot of people but they need to hear it. I just think the product is a bit soft." The legend had also added that today's backstage wrestlers only care about playing video games, while when he wrestled, backstage turned knives and guns as if to say that his modern colleagues are few men, while once they were all tougher and tough, real men.
Miro has been undefeated in singles action since arriving in AEW, but he's also undefeated when it comes to the social media game of trash talk as well. During a new interview with Fightful's American colleagues, wrestler AEW Miro talked about how he has rediscovered his love of video games and how the hobby is not something that should be frowned upon by anyone, launching a message right at the WWE Hall of Famer.
Miro is a tenacious athlete
"It all started very accidentally. After my release from WWE, I had nothing. I had to stay home for three months and couldn't work anywhere. Thankfully Xavier Woods and my mentor Shaq inspired me to do what I love to do.
I love to play video games in my spare time. I have loved it since I was 4. Why not do it when I am relaxing at home and connecting with my friends and the audience? It was a great experience. We need to grow as a community. Not everyone watches wrestling, they are just gamers fans.
Being able to do that crossover and show them what wrestling is or show wrestlers what video games are, however, you want to shoot it, video games are such an important part of today's world. People are trying to speak ill of video games, which I never understood.
We all have our free time. Some people want to drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes and heroin and others want to play video games. Some of these veterans say it's a bad thing. I don't think that's a bad thing. Just because we now have more brains than people before doesn't mean video games are bad.
Sorry Undertaker, we don't have guns and drugs and we don't fight backstage." When you take into account that Miro's wife, CJ Perry (Lana), is no longer part of WWE, you have to imagine that the TNT Champion has no fear now when it comes to taking shots at his former employer as they no longer have anyone there to punish with their booking.
