In a recent interview on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, All Elite Wrestling superstar Miro (the former Rusev in WWE) discussed plans for his “sex addict” character in the WWE.

“That’s when I came out and they wanted CJ [Lana] to say that I am a sex addict, but the original pitch was that I have erectile dysfunction. They really wanted to kill me, like completely, because I don’t think in anybody’s eyes they saw that the babyface has erectile dysfunction and he’s somewhat of a good guy, but you can’t prove that and there’s nothing wrong with people having erectile dysfunction, you know there’s the pills, you can take care of it, you can watch the commercials from Aubrey and you’ll find out, you can see what kind of pills you need to take, but that was not the case here and there’s no coming back from it, there’s absolutely no coming back from it and I told him, Vince, this is going to bury me completely, you already have the man that took my wife and now I have all this dysfunction and then, I’m going to lose. I just don’t think, well, I was not supposed to lose anyways, but that’s just changing time, I just told him, no I think it’s a bad idea if we do this sex addict thing, so he went for it right away, but thank God that I did not have erectile dysfunction as a character.”
