The Bulgarian Brute has been MIA from WWE programming for quite some time now. It was reported a few weeks ago by various news outlets that Rusev, along with his wife, Lana had asked for some time off from the company and the company had granted them the same. The report, however, was quashed by the man himself on Twitter saying that the dirt sheets got it all wrong.
Following this, rumors began surfacing about the Bulgarian's current WWE contract with some reports suggesting that his contract is up within a few months and that he is not looking to re-sign with the company. Just a cursory glance at the Bulgarian's WWE career over the past few years will show how bad booking coupled with lack of creative direction has completely ruined Rusev, a man whom many believed was going to be a world champion.
Rusev is someone who always makes his opponents look good. If he is indeed contemplating on leaving WWE for newer pastures, we think that the former US Champion should put over a young upstart like Black on his way out.Published 07 Jul 2019, 18:05 IST
