Dave Meltzer indicated in the latest installment of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE could be planning a double turn for Rusev and Tye Dillinger on the SmackDown Live brand soon.
Meltzer said that the company “tested” the double turn during last week’s WWE Live Event in Raleigh and mentioned the crowd completely went with the double turn.
Meltzer wrote, “It started out like you would expect. Then they did a double turn in the match. The crowd completely went with the double turn. So this had to be a market test for both. As we’ve noted, it’s just time for Rusev to turn.”
While Rusev is currently working a program with The New Day, it is very possible that in the near future they book Dillinger & Rusev on WWE television and do the turn then.
