• Big Update On Rusev’s WWE Status, Role For Greatest Royal Rumble

There’s speculation going on that Rusev is done with WWE after he got removed from the Casket match against The Undertaker and then removed all the references of WWE from his Twitter account (this comes after reports of Rusev asking for his release).

However, that’s not the case.

“Wrestling fans, I asked the WWE if Rusev has left the company. WWE said those rumors are not true, he is still with the company and he will be in the Royal Rumble match at Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia.”
