WWE SmackDown Live Superstar Rusev recently lashed out at a fan on Twitter, after the fan told him to leave WWE and sign a contract with All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
Rusev replied to the fan’s tweet, and stated: “Don’t tell me what to do”.
It has been a long while since Rusev’s stars fizzled out. He was quite possibly the most over Superstar on the SmackDown Live roster at one time, and his Rusev Day gimmick became incredibly popular.
The WWE Universe clamoured for him to get a push, but nothing of this sort happened. Rusev competed in a Fatal-4-Way match at WrestleMania 34 that was contested for the WWE United States Title. The ending to the match saw Jinder Mahal pin Rusev to win the gold. Soon after, Rusev became an afterthought in WWE. He recently told a fan that Rusev Day is dead. Rusev regularly takes shots at WWE on social media, with the recent one hinting that he’s retired from active competition.
