Anything that will give RuRu the push up the card he deserves is fine by me. Heck i'd even go as far and flip Usos/New Day too so that friendship can be developed too.

I'm a bit disappointed we didnt see Rusev in action this week

I'm holding out that we see him in some form at Survivor Series - id liek to see him come out and try to take out Strowman or someone like that - to give him that fear factor he had when he debuted. Thats been lost lately with all of the losses and silly angles hes been involved in

I know this is technically a double post but since there hasnt been anything in here for a while i feel it is merited

On SDLive they had Owens and Zayn plant the seed that Rusev was underappreciated and being over looked in favor of part time talent (Cena)

Rusev is a monster in the ring and surely one of the Heels that could fill in the Mahal void once his feud with AJ is finished.

I'm not expecting Rusev to win the title or anything but there seems to be a lack of decent Heels on SD that could fit into the title picture so easily and it would make sense at least to me for Rusev to be a filler feud for AJ

Rusev should have been the guy that got the Mahal spot, it's a damn shame he was injured around the time it happened.

I've got a lot of time for RuRu, and he is seemingly well liked by a few people, and he's been allowed to show a lot more personality recently, so I do hope they build him to the solid upper card role his talent deserves.

I have to admit he's improved over the years. I really enjoyed his debut and very short run on NXT as the Roman Gladiator character, and was sore they didn't keep that gimmick going for him on the main roster after they hotshotted him up there. Since then though he's slowly grown to be a damned fine character. Shame that now that he is better than ever nobody in creative seems to want to do anything WITH him. /facepalm

the Rusev day stuff is fucking dumb as shit, so even with any potential seeds sowed by Owens and Zayn, it'll be a very long time before he's back up to any level of challenging for anything of worth.

It's brilliant. That whole phase has got him over and made for good comedy.

His new t shirt with the Bulgaria colours on will become a big seller for him.

He comes across really well on Total Divas and so it's no surprise his babyface pops have grown since we've seen the real him on that show.

shows what a difference days can make.

I still don't like the singing, but yes, it's definitely getting him over, though i'll have to take your word for it about Total Divas.

I don't watch because, you know, gay...LOL

Im absolutely over the moon that they had him win the number 1 contenders match for the US title on SD.

The fact that now he is in some form of title picture, hopefully he will get a little more TV and in ring time and the Rusev Day momentum will continue

I hope they have something high profile lined up for him for Wrestlemania
