Rusev is a known star in the professional wrestling world now. While not yet a world champion, the Bulgarian Brute is one of the most popular competitors in the WWE.
When he was training to become a wrestler, he worked with Gangrel and Rikishi. While at Florida Supercon, Gangrel spoke about Rusev’s heart and will to become a professional wrestler.
He was a big Bulgarian guy from Bulgaria. He moved from Bulgaria to become a professional wrestler and the cat slept in his car. He didn’t miss a class.
He was delivering food, bouncing in a bar, and driving a taxi. But in-between all that, he was at wrestling school or sleeping in that parking lot so he wouldn’t miss his next class. His dedication is proof that hard work pays off.
Gangrel finished by saying that he was happy to be a part of Rusev’s life and his career, and proud to see how successful he has become.
