– Reason Behind Rusev Losing In 10 Seconds To Randy Orton
As seen at SummerSlam 2017, former United States Champion Rusev attacked former WWE Champion Randy Orton before their match and then went on to lose in just 10 seconds when Orton nailed an RKO as soon as the match began.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, this was done just to kick off the storyline between Rusev & Orton and that there’s no heat on Rusev. Also, this was done to give Orton a much needed win on PPV as he was on a PPV losing streak since WrestleMania 33 (where he defeated Bray Wyatt to win the WWE Championship). It should be noted that Rusev is on a PPV losing streak for over a year now. His last PPV win was over Zack Ryder at Battleground 2016.
– Braun Strowman’s Milestone
“The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman has now completed two years in WWE and below is what he wrote about it on Instagram:
And on this day two years ago I introduced #TheMonsterAmongMen to the world!!!! It’s crazy to look back at this photo because this was maybe the 9th time I’d ever been in front of a crowd. So many people judged me and said I would never be more than another failed attempt at a giant in the WWE. Well guess what I proved everyone of you wrong and I will continue to shut the mouths of naysayers because if you haven’t figured it out yet I was born to do this and #BraunStrowman will be talked about and remembered FOREVER!!!! #IveOnlyJustBegun #IWillNeverBeFinished
