• Rusev Reveals What Triple H Did For Him & Lana In WWE
When the time came for their WWE main roster debut, Vince McMahon wanted to split the pairing of Rusev and Lana.
However, Triple H fought for them and made sure they stayed together and debuted together in WWE.
On Kurt Angle’s podcast, Rusev (now known as Miro in AEW) talked about Triple H believing in him and Lana:
“There was a question if Lana was going to debut (on SmackDown with him) because that was also another issue that we had with Vince.
Vince always loves his big monsters by themselves and he thinks that the women take away from the heat, but thanks to Triple H, he fought for it. He believed in me and Lana as a unit, as a package. Thankfully to that, we debuted on SmackDown.
We started doing the vignettes with CJ, which I thought was absolutely the better choice. I don’t think Rusev by himself would be as over without Lana being there. He was so much better.”
