During an interview at the Pittsburgh Comic Con, current, AEW TNT champion Miro revealed why he stopped wrestling barefoot as he use to when he first made his debut with WWE.
"I tore my ankle. I had a match with Ryback and he gave me a back body drop outside the ring and as soon as I landed — I landed fine, but I was 315 pounds and my ankle just snapped, and all the ligaments, it tore everything around and ever since, I said, ‘No more.’ I put some shoes on. I loved (wrestling) barefoot. I was a huge fan of Umaga and always looked up to him. That was my tribute to him."
