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

I honestly thought Rusev was pretty hilarious and was more comfortable in his segment with HBK. Maybe it's just me. I've always liked Rusev, and I think whatever feud he's in, he's always made the best out of it.

What other opponent can Rusev have a decent feud with? I'm getting a bit tired of the Big Cass/Enzo segments at the moment.

Rusev can be so much more than just generic evil foreign heel.

Rusev is great at everything he does, and his comedy is top notch.


Edit: I wish Shawn would come back and Rusev would return the favor, but you know that's not gonna happen lol

Rusev's comedy made that segment bearable and you can tell that he's comfortable with making jokes. It's refreshing to see and it doesn't seem rehearsed at all

There's nothing Rusev can't turn into gold. He's that rare character in modern WWE that pull off comedy without seeming like a complete doofus.

Lana stole the segment from that side's perspective. She has more personality.

He was the saving grace of that horrible segment. Honestly why bring HBK back and subject him to that pointless comedy segment.

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

Nah, it was pretty terrible.

First of all, it makes him look dumb because he thinks Shawn Michaels, an actor, can somehow get him cast in a movie. As if that choice isn't made by someone in corporate.

Second of all, he wants his wife to be in an Inspirational film, which has like no prestiege at all in it. That'd be like saying "My wife is such a good actress, she should be in Cannibal Holocaust III."

Third of all, I appreciate wrestlers avoiding the cliche "City name, Sports Team is bad!" heat, wtf is Star Wars heat?

All around terrible segment.

Yeah he was doing fine until those muppets Enzo and Cass came out with their tired old routine and then the segment just dragged.
