Hopefully this awful angle leads to Rusev destroying Lashley and moving up the card. As bad as the angle has been, Rusev is at least entertaining. Everything he is given, whether it’s the evil foreigner gimmick or Rusev Day, he makes it work and gets over with the crowd. It baffles me that he has never had a main event push, he’s good on the mic, powerful as well agile in the ring, more charisma than the actual champion of RAW, he has a good look, and actually looks like he could kick someone ass. It’s a shame then that this storyline is no doubt gonna end up with Lashley coming on top an Rusev looking like a bitch.
If it gives Lashley a personality finally (bar that TNA run with MVP and the Top Team guys) then it’s not a bust. Rusev will be fine whatever they do to him, he’s that good he can spin something from whatever they give him. And I’ve accepted he’s not going to get the title I’d always hoped he’d been primed for, and I’m fine with that. Of course if it goes the opposite and Rusev does destroy him I’ll be gleeful.

Rusev should be one of the top Mid Card guys. Guy has personality and can cut a promo. Hoping WWE does the right thing and give him the win. He maybe isn't a 7X World Champ, but I do think he should get a run with the Title.
