Rusev Returns, Insinuated As The Father Of Maria Kanellis' Baby Boy On WWE Raw

Happy Rusev Day.

It was a rough night for Mike Kanellis, who lost two matches, his baby, and his woman. During Maria Kanellis' gender reveal party, she announced that she was pregnant with a baby boy. However, the shocking news was that the father was Ricochet, not her husband Mike Kanellis. Maria's big reveal led to a match between Ricochet and Mike, which Ricochet easily won.

It only got worse for Mike as Maria came out to announce that Ricochet wasn't actually the father, she was just hoping to motivate Mike. Instead, the real father is Rusev. Or at least that's what the scope of WWE's programming wants you to think. Even though Rusev returned, Maria neve explicitly announced him as the father, instead, his music cut her off. 

Rusev had not been seen on WWE television since WWE Super ShowDown in June when he competed in the 51-man battle royal. Much like Ricochet, Rusev easily dispatched of Mike Kanellis, who simply tried to congratulate Rusev and hit the bricks. 

Rusev's wife, Lana, was absent for his return.
