• Rusev On Why Vince McMahon Gave Him A Bonus Once
During his interview on Talk Is Jericho, former WWE Superstar Rusev (Miro in AEW) talked about receiving a bonus from Vince McMahon once.
Rusev was scheduled to win his final WWE match, but an unplanned decision was made during the ending moments of the match to have Rusev lose.
Rusev’s post-match actions in that match resulted in him getting a bonus from Vince McMahon.
Here’s what Rusev said about what happened after the match:
“I went and just started clubbing [Angel Garza] and he rolled out and I broke Joey Mercury’s rule which is if you’re babyface and you lose you never raise your hand.
But I just so wanted to stick it to everybody and say ‘it don’t matter who wins or loses because I am Miro’ and just raised my hands and that was it.
I came to the back and Vince McMahon said he was going to give me a bonus. He said he was going to give me a bonus because ‘oh they’re trying to bury you out there. You really took care of yourself. This is exactly what I need to see. You’re very aggressive. Good stuff.’ And that was my bonus.”
