During a recent appearance on Talk is Jericho, AEW Miro (former WWE star Rusev) talked about his time in WWE and his last big storyline between him and his real-life wife Lana, and Bobby Lashley transpired. Apparently, Paul Heyman told him that the storyline would lead to a WrestleMania main event.
"And I left and I stayed home for three or four months and I think Paul Heyman called us with that story, and I was like, ‘Where is it leading?’ Of course because this is my first question. Cool, it’s not my favorite story but where is it leading? ‘Main event of WrestleMania. One of the main events of WrestleMania.’ When you hear that, what are you gonna say? There’s plans and this is September, October, whatever it was so it’s a few months planned and it’s very realistic. Cool, I jumped on board and I knew it was a red flag since the beginning."
