• WWE Hall Of Famer Says Rusev Needs To Give Vince McMahon An Ultimatum

During a recent appearance on Chasing Glory With Lilian Garcia podcast, former United States Champion Rusev expressed his frustration with his position in WWE.

Below is what Rusev said:

“There’s nothing negative. I fight for everything it’s not like it may have come out wrong. I’m not sitting back like, ‘It is what it is’ because that’s the truth I’m not even going to work out or wake up in the morning and do cardio, any of this. I do want to look my best, I do want to be my best. Because I wanna be WWE Champion. I wanna be on top, I don’t wanna be forgotten.

That’s what urks me is that I do all these things, but nothing changes. That’s where the frustration comes. So what am I supposed to do then? Cut my hair. I did that. It was not a good decision, I love the short hair, but I got a few phone calls about it.

I’m just trying something. This or that to try and catch Vince’s eye. Something we go, we pitch, we talk, he just never comes to anything.

Things do come in waves. I was here and then for the next 5 years I was you know, and eventually I will do one of these [motions up] like a hump, not even a wave and then right back down.

I think that it was WrestleMania last year when the whole Rusev Day thing started and I thought it was my time. I keep pushing for it to be my time and I keep talking to everybody, but nobody wants to do anything.

I mean it’s very frustrating, but still as frustrating as it is it’s like, ‘Alright, let’s go to the gym. Let’s get better. Let’s do whatever we can. Let’s get this Trifecta meal plan on, let’s get that, let’s get a trainer, let’s try freakin’ CrossFit!’ Holy crap, CrossFit! It’s terrible! I’m doing that now. Anything to look better so you know eventually…cause I don’t know what is holding me back, to be honest. I really, really don’t.”

WWE Hall of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley gave Rusev the following advice during a recent edition of Busted Open Radio:

“It’s time for him to have the real one-on-one with Vince. That conversation is not with his wife next to him, it’s you walk in and you basically say to Vince: ‘Boss, what the f**k? What is it gonna take ya? And if we’re not going to do anything let’s shake hands and part ways.'”
