We noted over the weekend that Rusev would need time off to undergo shoulder surgery and that was the reason he was destroyed by The Big Show at the WWE Fastlane event.
F4WOnline reports that Rusev underwent the shoulder surgery last week. Rusev has been injured for sometime and the hope was he could get through to WrestleMania, however the injury worsened. The belief is he won’t be on the WrestleMania 33 card.
Rusev joked about undergoing surgery Monday night after The Big Show destroyed Titus O’Neil, writing:
Maybe @TitusONeilWWE needs surgery as well!
