Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face

Face Rusev will only work if he is booked as a dominate force of nature ala Goldberg style. Also have him have a change of heart about America too as he cannot be a good guy that hates the country.

Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face

Typical WWE babyface ideas:
Rusev comes out gets pedigreed by Triple H, instant babyface.
Lana gets pregnant, but miscarries when a heel accidentally touches her.
Rusev falls in love with a mop, and drops Lana.
Rusev comes out to I am a real american, makes out with Lana, then Stephanie cuts his balls off.

I see this going really, really well.

No man, faces can't be dominant forces. A face rusev would have to job for a while to gain the sympathy of the fans.

ok, here are the 3 recipes for a Face Rusev's success
1. Denounce his hatred of America, and carry an American flag. (Neutralize)
2.Be a jobber for a few months (sympathize)
3. Have a comedy gimmick (admirize)

Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face

Are they going the Vladimir Kozlov route with Rusev?

Rusev does not need to turn face at all. It doesn't suit him at the moment.

What they need to do is send him to Smackdown and let him be the legit monster he could be. Creative needs to take him serious. turning him face will be the final nail on the coffin. They missed the opportunity already, They could've turned him face during the whole Lana x Ziggler storyline. But of course even if Lana hadn't ruined it they were hell-bent on keeping him heel and pushing Lana as the next Kelly Kelly.

If he goes face he'll become irrelevant by becoming an ongoing comedy act with the like of Truth and Goldust.

Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face

Do it, a face turn means he'll win more feuds and matches, and tbh I'd like to see Rusev vs KO over the Universal title.

Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face

No need for them to change anything, or make a big statement with him making a big promo or being taken out, just let him stop acting so heelishly and insulting people and instead let him talk about wanting to be the WWE champion to become the most successful man from Bulgaria or something. You can even make it comedy i.e. I want to be more successful than Bulgarian XXXXXXXX (and nobody knows who they are), choose a different person each week. However don't make him a comedy act, book him in good matches where he just falls short and it'll happen naturally.

proud TNA convert and its the state of WWE that led me there

Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face

People thought Alberto Del Rio would be a crap babyface and he turned out to be a good babyface.

Nikita Koloff was also a good babyface.

I'll give this Rusev face turn a chance and if it sucks then I'll shit on it.

Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face

In his feud with Cena 2.0 Rusev did absolutely nothing heel like. He was defending the honour of his wife and family. Reigns was an arrogant dick who made fun of Rusev wife and family. So yes Rusev could be and awesome face but he would be better as a bad ass tweener who fuckS up heels and faces. Just have him pander to the crowd a little and I mean a little. Just have him go the Stone cold route where he saves the face from the beat down only to then nail the face as well.

They ahold without doubt done a double turn with Reigns and Rusev. The hardcore, IWC and casuals all boo Reigns so are make him the arrogant dick heel who turns on fans and Rusev a tweener/face bad ass who finally beats Lesnar at Rumble.

Re: WWE Is Considering Turning Rusev Face

Well they've absolutely killed his credibility as a heel after Reigns slaughtered him for months on end.

A face turn though...I can only seeing that going one way; and that's the same way Vladimir Kozlov did. Comedy jobber Poor Rusev, if only he was as boring as Seth Rollins or Balor, he'd be a multiple time World Champ by now.
