Report: Randy Orton - Rusev Feud To Continue

Many suspected that Rusev could be on the outs with WWE following his quick loss to Randy Orton at Sunday's Summerslam. According to a new report, the decision was more about Orton. 

Per Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer, the swift match was a way to kick off the Orton/Rusev feud as opposed to burying Rusev. The match consisted only of a quick attack and RKO. You can see an excerpt of our live coverage below.
