Rusev has been well received on WWE TV as of late with his new "Rusev Day" gimmick on SmackDown Live. Despite this, WWE has not been giving him the push that fans would like to see for the Bulgarian.
The former United States Champion has aligned himself with Aiden English who hypes him and sings him to the ring by praising "Rusev Day."
In fact, "Rusev Day" has gotten so huge that the chants have rung out at shows like Monday Night RAW, during SmackDown Live segments not involving Rusev, and even at some Ring Of Honor (ROH) shows.
As of this writing, Rusev currently doesn't have any plans for WrestleMania 34. This is a shame given that fans have really gotten behind him lately and would like to see him involved in some sort of title picture; whether it's the Tag Team Titles with English, or the United States Title picture.
There's a possibility that Rusev could be involved in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. While there hasn't really been much of a push behind the winners of those rumbles in the past; the man who has reaped the most off of winning has arguably been Baron Corbin.
If Rusev is in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, you can bet a huge gathering of fans in New Orleans will be chanting "Rusev Day" and getting behind the Bulgarian.
Rusev recently took to Twitter to comment on his Road To WrestleMania. He said that what he needs to do is fight a celebrity at "The Show Of Shows." He even issued out a hashtag he is trying to get fans to use:
WWE Legend The Rock responded to Rusev's challenge and volunteered his good friend and comedy icon Kevin Hart:
If WWE can get their hands on a celebrity appearance for WrestleMania, it's unlikely that they use them for a feud against Rusev. While the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal probably isn't the ideal scenario for Rusev in the eyes of fans, it's the likeliest probability for him.
With four weeks left to go before we get to WrestleMania it should be interesting to see if WWE can muster something unique of for the "Rusev Day" leader instead.
