Rusev makes cryptic tweet following Smackdown Live

The Bulgarian Brute failed to capture the United States Championship at WrestleMania 34. Rusev was pinned by the new champion, Jinder Mahal, who sat ringside last night to see who he would face at Backlash.

Rusev, Randy Orton, and Bobby Roode faced each other in a triple threat to decide who would take on the Modern Day Maharaja. And yet again, Rusev fell short. He had the Accolade locked in on Bobby Roode, but was tossed out by Randy Orton, who won the match after hitting Roode with an RKO.

While Rusev may be one of the most popular superstars on the roster, he can’t seem to get that big win that he needs, and it looks like enough is enough. On Twitter, the former United States Champion sent out this tweet.

It was rumored after he had been added to the US Title match at WrestleMania that he was working on getting a release, but was persuaded to stay when WWE gave him the opportunity. It’s understandable for him to be frustrated with his position. After all, his shirt and calendar were some of the highest selling merch on the WWE shop, and Rusev Day chants tend to break out at every WWE event.

Is Rusev getting ready to leave the WWE, or is the Bulgarian Brute looking to swap brands? With the Superstar Shakeup happening soon, a change might be a good idea.

    “Woken Rusev” is cracking me up.

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    That change could refer to his gimmick, or switching brands. They’re not going to let him go now…

    There’s always a chance he could beat the undertaker due to interference from someone ….

  • Darrin Tyler

    Nice Owen Heart Reference. Oh and if he leaves at all it won’t be until after the Casket Match at the next Royal Rumble which would mean Undertaker is going to win.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Rusev is a victim of his own success. He organically got over with the fans and McMahon hates when people get over on their own, if he didn’t push the idea first. Ever since Rusev complained he has been the jobber to the stars. He wins just enough small matches to put him in bigger matches to lose. Mania? Who didn’t see him being the one to get pinned? A casket match vs Taker? Come on we all know how that ends. Doubt a move to RAW makes him anymore of a contender. At least there, he can lose to Matt Hardy and maybe be Woken Rusev

    Rusev leaving WWE right now would be a mistake. Actually, it would be idiotic. He is the merch master right now and his popularity is at an all time high. Especially for a guy who was hated for his first few years in WWE due to his characters anti-American stance. The company did him no favors by giving him that unique “Undefeated” status. It is a job killer. It still haunts him. When you have a guy like that finally lose, then the losses start to add up and the average fan looks at him and says, “what happened”? A move to Raw with his lyrical partner would be the best thing possible for Rusev. Rusev vs. Samoa Joe? How bout that match? Love it.
