– SmackDown Live Star Asks For His Release From WWE
According to the Dirty Sheets podcast, SmackDown Live Superstar Rusev is unhappy with his booking in WWE and has asked for his release. Rusev returned to WWE programming last month from injury and since then he has ended up losing to John Cena at Battleground and to Randy Orton at SummerSlam in just 10 seconds.
Rusev isn’t a fan of the SmackDown Live creative team and his start & stop push. Another wrestler who isn’t a fan of the SmackDown Live creative team is the 13 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Randy Orton. Orton reportedly said that he would’ve asked for his release as well if he was Rusev and that he wants to go to Raw.

I can speak on the behalf of his family– the love and support you all are showing for him & us is OVERWHELMING!! Dallas would always tell me “just keep swimming his little pengutimous (hippo mixed with penguin)” he would tell everyone the same — just keep swimming, keep moving through life and he will be your angel above!! He had a way with making people laugh!! Dallas was an exceptional body builder, but I didn’t see him for that .. I saw him for HIM AND HIS HEART!!
