Regarding upcoming plans for Rusev, he’s expected to continue his rivalry with Roman Reigns for the United States Championship. With Rusev not being on tonight’s Raw, below is the storyline update on Reigns that WWE posted:
If not for Triple H’s interference, Roman Reigns might be heading to Kansas City this Monday night with the WWE Universal Championship slung around his shoulder. Unfortunately, a Pedigree from The Game sealed The Big Dog’s fate in this past Monday’s Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match — a vengeance-fueled attack after Reigns defeated Triple H for the WWE World Championship at WrestleMania 32. Denied Team Red’s most prestigious title by his longtime nemesis, Reigns is undoubtedly furious, and the rest of the Raw locker room would be wise to stay out of his way this week.
Update: Roman Reigns appeared at the end of Raw and will face Kevin Owens in a non-title match next week on Raw. If Reigns wins, he will enter the Universal Championship match at Clash of Champions 2016.
