WWE News: Rusev shows off new look
Rusev's career so far...
Rusev has been a mainstay on the WWE roster ever since he made his debut back in the 2014 Royal Rumble Match. He made his TV debut months later on Monday Night RAW, and squashed Zack Ryder in the process. Rusev kicked off a feud with Xavier Woods and R-Truth, ending with a 2-on-1 Handicap Match at Extreme Rules 2014, which Rusev won. He won the United States title from Sheamus and went on to successfully defend it against John Cena at Fastlane 2015, followed by losing the title to Cena at WrestleMania 31.
Rusev soon became a member of The League of Nations, that also consisted of Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, and Wade Barrett. By the time 2018 came around, the 'Rusev Day' gimmick had taken off and he was getting incredibly loud reactions on a weekly basis. Unfortunately, this didn't result in a major push and Rusev lost a United States title Fatal Four-Way Match at WrestleMania 34. He soon aligned with Shinsuke Nakamura, but hasn't been seen on WWE TV for a long while now.
