Rusev says that he’s a fan of 205 Live and also takes credit for being the reason that Lince Dorado is jacked.
Rusev was let go by WWE on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, but before that, he was a fan of the WWE Cruiserweight brand, 205 Live. On a recent Twitch stream, he addresses his fondness for the WWE Cruiserweights and says he would watch 205 Live regularly, while everyone else would leave.
“I was a huge fan of 205 Live,” Rusev began. “I used to watch them all the time. Everybody else would leave. Then they'd test me. Can you believe that they tested me? It is true. Remember how you tested me? Then you guys asked me who's finisher is what? Like I'm a frickin' mark.”
Never one to back down from a challenge, Rusev passed the test with flying colors
“I'm telling you, but I passed. Ali asked me, what's his finish? I told him. Everybody was kind of asking me... These guys worked so hard, man. They're so good too. They're so frickin' good.
“Ask Lince why he got in such good shape. Ask him. Again, I'm putting myself over [laughs].”
Rusev also confirmed recently that he tested positive for COVID-19. Learn more at this link.
