Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face
Two things make this a successful idea:
- The crowd love Lana
- Rusev is charismatic and witty
The key topic to avoid at first would be nationalism.
He doesn't suddenly love "American pigs". He loves his wife and he's an honourable husband. That's how you turn him, then once he's been accepted by the crowd he can start saying 'You know, this place ain't so bad...". He gets the money, he gets the power, he's got the girl - they could re-watch Scarface (or Razor...) for ideas on how to make this cool. Lana is a major asset to his character.
I'm behind the idea.
