Paul Heyman Told Miro His Feud With Bobby Lashley Would Lead To A Main Event Match At WWE WrestleMania 36

A high profile spot for the long-running rivalry...

In his final WWE storyline, Miro (FKA Rusev) was engaged in a six-month-long feud with Bobby Lashley. The story featured many over the top moments including Rusev being presented as a sex addict and the return of Liv Morgan during Lana and Lashley's wedding. 

The feud never really had a definitive conclusion and the former Bulgarian Brute was released by WWE in April. 

How the storyline would have ended is unknown but Miro revealed on Talk Is Jericho that Paul Heyman told him the feud would lead to a main event match at WrestleMania 36. 

The Best Man said: "I left and I stayed home for three, 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. It's not my favourite 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 plan that it's very realistic. 'Cool,' I jumped on board."
