Quote From Jim Ross Website

Keep an eye on the Rusev and company duo as I think that they have a shot at becoming an entity of value. It won't happen immediately but if they are mentored and creatively managed in a smart, logical manner, this duo might be good in time. I've liked Rusev ever since I first saw him in NXT when I was traveling there regularly.


Alexander Rusev was made to look impressive at the Royal Rumble. Then E decide to not build on it the next night and so he's involved in bland promos.

Whatever happens in the future he's gotta be proud of being the first Bulgarian to ever be signed by E.

I would expect the usual of undefeated heel character looking like a main event player, before being squashed by Cena around Survivor Series time.

Rusev IMO needs a better manager. But I REALLY like Rusev.

Lana is alright. She rocks the skimpy business suit better than Debra ever did.

Funny seeing Rusev stood on a platform to try and make him look taller and more intimidating.

It was a surprise to see him because now isn't the time to be booking newbies.

I didn't like Rusev at all at first, but over time due to them actually developing his character and storylines, as-well as giving the United-States title meaning/value again, he grew on me.

I mostly like his mouthpiece, Lana, though; I find her to be amusing whenever she says, "Shut tup!" Whenever she comes out to cut a promo; I always anticipate that moment. Some say she's this and that, but I like her.

I'm still not sold on Rusev. I liked him a lot more in the beginning when he was working the Roman Gladiator gimmick in NXT. He was so different and could have been great, then he got stuck with Vince's perennial favorite of "Russian bad guy" gimmick. Lana has gotten him over on her looks and lame promos, but Rusev in the hands of Bobby Heenan could have been Haku pt. 2.
 
A lot of people seem to like him now though, so... meh, good for him I guess.

I'm not CRAZY about him, but I think he's a lot better than when he was just having squash matches all the time. I can understand, though why some people think he's boring because he has a typical Vince McMahon "bad guy against america" gimmick. Sad thing is, he's one of the only few NXT stars who are actually being pushed right, regardless of whether his gimmick is "old" or not.

to be honest, he comes on the screen during Raw, I'm fast-forwarding.
 
I don't get why people keep saying he has made the US Title important again.  the same was said when Cesaro won it, and where did that go?
 
The US Title is an outdated belt, that is used mostly for cheap heat tactics like having a non-American win it to promote xenophobic sentiments, or US faces who can't be all patriotic while holding the belt, as it's too dull.

I'm sick of seeing him Squash guys over and over and fucking over again. He needs to have a loss. In a Dusty Finish would be best. This winning every week isn't making me want to watch him It's making me want to see him lose the same way I wanted to see Perfect Jr Lose the IC title.

He can still be a monster if he loses but then beats the everloving shit out of the victor afterwards
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

He was pushed and built up well and since being given the belt he's hardly been used at all. That's not how it should work.

He hasn't been given a fued for the US title and that's ruining the aura built up for him.

I hope he gets a big win at Wrestlemania so keep him away from Cena.

Unfortunately, all the so called "rumors" say he'll be facing Cena at Wrestlemania... Just rumors, but it COULD happen.
