“I was getting some of the boys around because we were not okay about how everybody was treated in the pandemic situation,” he said  on Chris Jericho’s Talk is Jericho podcast. “We felt scared to go to work, and once again, it was probably ten of us talking, somebody leaked it to the office.

“From us 10 people that were talking, somebody leaked it to the office and to the dirt sheets, and once that happened, I knew right away they’re gonna fire me because they’re going to blame it all on me of course because I’m the guy, but it doesn’t matter.”

Miro spoke on a number of issues, such as lashing out at WWE’s head of talent relations Mark Carano over his mistreatment and how he got in trouble with the WWE for changing his hairstyle without informing them.

He is now a member of the AEW following the end of his no-compete clause.
