I noticed this recently, why does he have the USA flag on his attire, he’s a heel and doesn’t have a patriotic gimmick.

Admittedly I stop watching WWE for a few years, so I might have missed out on something. Is there any specific reason behind his choice of having to he USA flag on the back of tights?

Because he's American? I think he's conservative too, who tend to be more patriotic than liberals.

Rusev has the Bulgaria flag on his shorts and I don't see no threads.

I don't enjoy the product these days, and I don't even nitpick every single tiny thing about it.

I can't imagine how much of a torture the weekly shows must be for the people that do!!

But Rusev’s gimmick is a “Bulgarian Brute”, what’s Zigglers gimmick, “The Show-Off”, it doesn’t make sense... Unless he’s saying that Americans are show-offs, lol.

So are the majority of the locker room. It’s just random because it’s not a defining point of his gimmick.

He got sick of people pointing out he just had ripped off HBK attire so he thought he would wear something HBK never did.

Can't say I know why but I do prefer it over the shorts he would wear in the early '10s.

Isn't his gimmick more of a bitter veteran than a show-off now?

True... but his theme song and titantron are still “the show off”... man, I don’t even know anymore... was he US champ lately? Maybe these tights were made for him to wear during his championship reign?
