• Former WWE Star Rusev Says He’s Going To Japan

Former WWE United States Champion Miro (fka as Rusev) was one of the many wrestlers released by WWE during the budget cuts due to the Coronavirus pandemic in April.

The former Bulgarian Brute’s next move in the pro-wrestling world is unknown as of now, but fans are excited to find out where he’ll be heading next.

In his latest vlog with his wife CJ Perry (Lana), titled ‘Day In The Life Of A WWE Star’, Miro had a tongue slip while driving his car, where he said ‘Once I go to Japan’.

Miro and CJ then start acting weirdly so that fans don’t notice the tongue slip.

You can watch it in the video below:

This got fans speculating that Miro may be joining New Japan Pro Wrestling in the future.
