• Rusev Praises Current AEW Wrestler

Former United States Champion Rusev was released from WWE last month.

He recently started a Twitch channel to play games and chat with fans. During a recent Twitch stream, the topic of current AEW Superstar Chris Jericho came up.

Below is what Rusev said about Jericho:

“I love Chris. Chris is a great dude. Having him backstage when I was with the WWE…he was great.

He’s a great leader, man. He cares so much. He was probably the biggest leader of the whole locker room, to be honest.”
