While he still portrays a heel on television the Rusev Day chants of the former United States Champion have got him more over with the crowd in only a few months than most babyfaces on the main roster.
During a recent interview with Wrestling Inc, Rusev talked about these chants among other things and explained the ideology behind them.
According to the former Champion, these chants are not just a catchphrase and instead, they are more related to a mentality of celebrating who you are:
“It’s more than just a catchphrase – it’s a mentality. It’s celebrating yourself; celebrating who you are. It’s more than just catchphrase. If you think about it, it’s Rusev Day. So it’s more than that. People understand that, and the passion behind it. That’s why people get behind it, and it’s just been amazing to see.”
Apart from this Rusev also talked about his appearance on Total Divas and claimed that he doesn’t know whose idea it was to put him and Aiden English together.
