Rusev might not be in the best place on the roster right now. He recently let his frustrations get the best of him during an interview with Chasing Glory where he openly spoke about issues with Vince McMahon. He would love to be on top of the WrestleMania card, but that doesn’t look likely this year.
Impractical Jokers star Brian Quinn recently sent out a tweet about WrestleMania where he said the most frustrating thing about the show this year is that Rusev vs Elias will not headline the event. This prompted a reply from the Bulgarian Brute.
Well we can’t main event WM every year, Brian
Rusev is still a WWE Superstar so the company isn’t giving up on him. They aren’t letting him go either. His dream upon coming to America was to be a pro wrestler. Becoming a WWE Superstar exceeded his wildest dreams, but since he is in WWE he wants to be the top champion. Perhaps WWE will eventually place Rusev on top, but there is always next year’s WrestleMania.
