Rusev hasn’t appeared on WWE television for a good amount of time now. While he did compete in the WWE Super ShowDown event, where he was part of the huge 51 man battle royal match, he was just a name and nothing more there.
Rusev took to Twitter and commented on Shane McMahon’s current push in WWE, but he hasn’t done anything apart from that. Apparently, there is a reason why he hasn’t been seen on Smackdown Live lately.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Rusev asked for time off from the road. He will be back “shortly,” though that really didn’t give any details regarding when he would actually return.
We hope that when Rusev finally makes his return, WWE actually has something planned for him this time around.
