Backstage Rumors on Rusev's Current WWE Status
Friday, April 13, 2018
There have been a lot of things going on with Rusev right now that suggests that he is unhappy with the WWE and he wants to be released from his contract. An online report indicated that the reason WWE inserted Rusev into the Fatal Four Way Match for the United States Title at WrestleMania 34 was a way to appease him due to the fact that he supposedly asked for his release.
According to Dave Meltzer on a recent Wrestling Observer Radio, the report that indicated that was very likely untrue. However, late last night after being removed from the Casket Match against Undertaker at the Greatest Royal Rumble Event, Rusev changed both his Instagram and Twitter pages (by removing his name) and also added an email address for booking information. These changes seem to suggest that he is no longer with WWE, but neither party has yet to make any public statements on his release or his status, so we will just have to wait and find out until more information is made available.
