In the video below, Rusev say, "This is the deal. I got fired, right? Professional wrestling, blah, blah. Who cares? Exciting news is going on. We’re going to start a Twitch channel pretty soon because I want to show how good I am at video games. Why not start a channel where people can see me play video games all day? Because that's pretty much all I do."

Rusev said he will address his WWE exit when the time is right, teasing an appearance on Ryback's podcast.
