Rusev isn’t going to Saudi Arabia to work the Super ShowDown as planned. Instead, Rey Mysterio will be filling in for him.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that Rusev pulled out of the show. He stated that an injury is to blame, but essentially the Bulgarian Brute decided not to go.
“The story is an injury, but he backed out of the show, essentially. You know it was at the last minute because on the graphic during RAW for the match it was Rusev, but they said Mysterio is in the match.”
This is a very interesting situation. Now we’re uncertain when Rusev will emerge once again. I apparently won’t be going to Saudi Arabia for one reason or another.
