Yeah, Rusev didn't seem like the usual modern day geek that sinks in promos with part-timers.

Good on him. His Roman Reigns impression on UpUpDownDown is hilarious.

It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what.

It was shit.

Plus I don't want Rusev to be funny in anyway, because that'll give Vince ideas for a 'dancing gimmick'

Rusev has been the most underrated comedy character for over a year. He's the GOAT.

He was funny no doubt.. but the segment as a whole was really quite bad, with the exception of Lana's Golden Globes, and is funny really what we should want from someone who should be a monster heel?

I don't get why the fans never really cheered for anything HBK did until No Chin Music. His promo was hard to watch, and then when the others came in it was at least a usual lame WWE segment.

This is not exactly breaking news, Rusev is the best.

He can be the serious badass heel, he can be fucking hilarious in comedy segments. The guy can do it all.

The segment itself wasn't good, yes, because HBK had nothing to say other than promoting his dumb movie. However, Rusev was great in a bad segment. Not the first time, either. He did it every fucking week during the terrible feud with Ziggler and Summer Rae.

Re: Anyone thought Rusev was pretty decent in his segment with HBK?

As soon as they showed Shawn backstage dabbing with TJP (at which point I thought it could only get better, how wrong can one guy be eh?) I thought to myself "Rusev is eating a superkick tonight".

The segment itself was utter horseshit, definitely the hot favourite for worst segment of 2017 and we still have 50 episodes to go, but Rusev handled himself very well on the mic; particularly his "That must be an american joke because I don't get it" line.

He deserves so much more than to be the whipping boy in a promo for a straight-to-dvd movie or the bitch for a pair of hacks that Vince / HHH has a hard-on for.

Re: Anyone thought Rusev was pretty decent in his segment with HBK?

I thought he was horrible. What I mean is, his lines didn't make any sense.

Rusev: HBK, if you want your movie to do well you should put my wife in it.

HBK: Um, the movie has already been made and it comes out in two weeks.

Rusev: I don't care. Use CGI like that Star Wars movie.

Who writes this shit?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

If male indie wrestlers are refereed to as indie fags then what are female indie wrestlers called?

Is it just me or has Rusev's accent become less apparent? There were times during last night's segment when I swear I thought his accent was as much a put on accent as Lana's "Russian" accent.
