Alexander Rusev...

Now, hear me out.


Does anyone else think Rusev is the perfect choice to go on an unstopppable run the same way Samoa Joe did in Tna when he first started?

I see some similarities between the two.
1) both are huge guys who are extremely athletic. We've seen Rusev hit heel kicks and go for a diving splash in his NXT match with Ziggler.
2) both have backgrounds in martial arts, and utilize them well.
3) both have an intimidation factor about that few can match.

I think if WWE are smart, they'll throw Rusev into demolition mode until they think he's ready for a belt. Rusev is the only big guy that's shown any potential for the future, they better not fuck him up.

NOT REMOVING THIS UNTIL...

1} Y2J either makes 10 IC title reigns,or gets another world title. Probs won't happen.
2) Ryback is fired. Opinion changed.
3) Christian gets a decent WHC reign. Retired.
4) Tyson Kidd wins US or IC title.
5) CM Punk wins another world title. Good luck in UFC.
6) The Uso's are given a shot. (3/3/14)
7) AJ Styles gets the TNA title. (BOUND FOR GLORY 2013!)
8) Austin Aries and Robbie Roode win all the gold. Aries won X title, Roode won WHC.
9) Taeler Hendrix wins KO championship. Ain't happening.
10) Nigel Mcguiness comes out of retirement.

I don't care for him. But I'll wait and see....with one eye open

Don't know much about him, but I love the vignettes. His music is awesome, and I'm surprised to find out that his sidekick is a born and bred American. She does the accent well, IMO.

I see where you're coming from, but that's not what I'm aiming for. If they focus on his actual abilities, and have his ethnicity play second fiddle, he'll be a much better asset.

Unfortunately, he will probably be partaking in comedy vignettes with Santino by September.

Re: Alexander Rusev...

In the rumble he didn't seem that big. He's not very tall. And he doesn't seem intimidating at all, he kinda looks very young. he'll just have a strong run like Tensai in the start and then down to midcard.

Re: Alexander Rusev...

I like the look of him he looked good on NXT. He probably won't amount to much though as he won't be much of a talker.

LOL at Rock marks since 05/02/2014

LOL at people that think rep matters since 11/02/2014
