even though Rusev is from Bulgaria he was the Russian hero and always wore Russia´s colors and flag but after he lost to Cena the whole Russian thing stopped now he is officialy from Bulgaria. what was the reason? ´cos that happened before the Lana incident.

It was when they kayfabe split him from Lana. They probably just realised it wouldn't make much sense for him to represent Russia and the gimmick was pretty limited.

the creative team and/or Vince had too much time on their hand and started to overthink the situation.

He started as the Bulgarian Brute though?

Then became Russian. Now he's Bulgarian again.

It's just like Kofi, first he was Jamaican, then Ghanaian, then ????.

It's just the same as any other gimmick change in history. Oh Triple H isn't really a blueblood? Hurricane REALLY isn't a superhero?! Come on, give me a break.

No its not the same ´cos they didnt change the gimmick only the nationality plus HHH never mentioned a politician or a president.

It would have been the same reason of Kofi not being billed from Jamaica anymore.
The wrestler wanting to represent his real country.

For example, if Alberto would been asked to portray a colombian drug dealer, he would have asked to portray a mexican drug dealer instead...:wink2:

He was the Bulgarian Brute to begin with, then they stopped calling him that, now they've gone back to it
