• Rusev Reveals Original Plan For His “Rusev Day” Gimmick
During a recent interview with ESPN, SmackDown Live Superstar Rusev discussed his “Rusev Day” gimmick and revealed the original plan for this gimmick.
Below is what he said:
“I had no idea this was going to happen. This was supposed to be a one-time ‘Rusev Day’ thing. I never thought in a million years it was going to be what it is today. It was something we planned to do, but just for one day. But it just caught on fire ever since then. Nobody expected that.I’ve just been enjoying it. I’ve been booed out of the building for the past four years. So finally the people now appreciate me. But I’m just having fun, I’m just doing me. Every bad guy or good guy, we all enjoy the crowd reaction, so I’m just going with it.
By far it’s the most fun I’ve had in my career. I mean, I loved WrestleMania 31 with the tank – that was amazing, of course. But now I’m showing everybody that you don’t have to be stuck being a foreigner bad guy. Being a foreigner bad guy doesn’t have to be my destiny, and I can be much more than that.”
