RUMOR: Rusev Pushing For Release Due To Not Being Happy With The Way He's Being Used On SmackDown
Posted By: Dustin Frisch on Apr 05, 2018
It was reported by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Rusev may have been added to the WWE United States Title match at WrestleMania 34 due to the popularity of Rusev Day and merchandise sales.
WWE may have added Rusev to the match because he was wasn't happy about how he was being used on SmackDown. PWInsider reports that there was talk about a month ago of Rusev pushing for his release due to how he was being used. A second source was not able to confirm the rumor to PWInsider, but this could explain why he was moved from the fifth annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal to the US Title match.
Rusev will face Jinder Mahal, Bobby Roode and champion Randy Orton in the Fatal 4 Way at WrestleMania 34 on Sunday.
It's funny because the rumor was joked about by Rusev about his release back on March 2nd due to a WWE Twitter poll that asked fans about the most memorable move from his career.
