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.

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

It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' 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.

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.

Yeah...this guy's going ridiculously far. I can see it now.


121 SUPERBOWL TV SPOTS! Civil War, Batman V Superman, X-Men!

You can blame bloody football for the delay of this weeks podcast as we wanted to get in all the TV Spots for the 2016 Superbowl! We're talking Captain America: Civil War, Batman V Superman, X-Men Apocalypse, Ninja Turtles, Independence Day Resurgence, The Jungle Book and others probably!

We also touch on news concerning Rogue One, Zack Synder defending his version of Superman, Deadpool's rave reviews and more!

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
