WWE Planning to Push Rusev & Turn Him Babyface?

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the reason WWE decided on having a tournament for the United States Championship Title was an attempt to jump start Rusev’s push. While Rusev isn’t in the tournament, it’s very possible that the tournament concludes with Rusev turning babyface and possibly winning championship title.

There is also speculation that after he captures the title, he may work a program with Aiden English.
