Fastlane 2019: 5 Bold predictions in this WWE PPV
#4 End of a streak
The Bulgarian Brute Rusev has been in WWE's dog house for quite some time now. He emerged as a breakout superstar in 2014. His credibility was hurt in 2015 due to being defeated by John Cena on multiple occasions.
Although he picked up momentum a number of times after that, it was quickly extinguished. Over the last few years, he has mainly competed on the kick-off shows or on the under-card of pay-per-views.
However, it should be noted that Rusev has not won a pay-per-view match since December 18, 2016's Roadblock event, where he defeated Big Cass by count-out. Since then, Rusev has either missed pay-per-views or has lost his matches. Even his "Rusev Day" gimmick, which was insanely over with the WWE Universe, didn't help much in bringing him up the card.
He is scheduled to team up with Shinsuke Nakamura to take on The New Day's Xavier Woods and Big E tonight. A win over them can definitely catapult Rusev into the Tag Titles picture and end his losing streak at the same time.
