Miro has a chance to redeem himself by scoring a win over Bryan Danielson.
The AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament went in a new direction on Wednesday’s Dynamite. Jon Moxley was removed from the tournament when it was announced he was entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program. When these real-life things take place, it’s important to remember there are bigger things than wrestling. The wrestling world sent Mox all of their support as he works to overcome his challenges.
That meant that Moxley’s spot in the tournament needed to be filled. AEW went with The Redeemer Miro to fill the spot. He dispatched of Orange Cassidy quickly, setting up a match with Bryan Danielson in the finals. Fans are anxiously awaiting the match, with many wanting Danielson to get a shot at Kenny Omega or Adam Page for the AEW World Championship.
Miro should 100% beat Bryan Danielson at Full Gear and get the future AEW World Championship.

Yes, he didn’t go through all of the rounds of the tournament. No, he wasn’t even an option on the table as we started this tournament. Yet with the finals on the horizon, Miro represents the best option as he has been hand-chosen (which ties into his gimmick). Danielson does not need to win a tournament to get a world championship shot. He’s been a world champion in Ring of Honor and WWE. Danielson is an established world title contender. Fans would buy into him challenging for the AEW World Championship at any point. Hell, if he debuted and challenged for the title against Kenny Omega, none of us would have been upset.
Miro was a phenomenal TNT Champion. Since losing the belt to Sammy Guevara, he has been looking for redemption once more. When Miro was Rusev, he only received two world championship shots on television or pay-per-view despite being one of WWE’s most over talents. AEW should capitalize on Miro’s great run and put him in the main event picture. Once he gets a signature win over Danielson on pay-per-view he will be hot enough to challenge for the world title.
With Adam Page looking for redemption in his match against Omega, AEW may have a babyface champion. Miro doesn’t need to be the champion, not yet. But if he wins this tournament, Miro is well on his way to being a future AEW World Champion.
