Rusev crushes....but not on women's wrestling.
The former WWE United States champion is still awaiting a return to the Smackdown Live brand after an injury, but has seen his wife Lana get several opportunities at championship gold. According to Rusev, he doesn't even watch women's wrestling, unless it's to see Lana.
"The Raving Russian" will have her third opportunity to face Naomi for the Smackdown Women's Championship this Tuesday on Smackdown Live. Rusev recently returned to the ring, but not television. He appeared on an April episode of Smackdown in a pre-recorded video demanding a title match in June, but there was never any follow up.
