Rusev hasn’t signed a new WWE contract at this point. His wife Lana inked a multi-million dollar deal months ago, but he was still ironing out some details.

WWE appears to have pulled Rusev from television due to his contract status. His storyline with Lana and Bobby Lashley with Liv Morgan was completely dropped.

PW Insider reports that Rusev was backstage at Raw this week. He just wasn’t used on camera.

Rusev was backstage at the show but not used on camera.

Rusev is making the trip to tapings, but not doing anything on television now. At least his contract isn’t frozen.

WWE could always revive Rusev’s storyline whenever they see fit. It doesn’t appear that Rusev is taking part in much on the road to WrestleMania.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
