Despite being ridiculously over with the WWE Universe, Rusev isn’t achieving as much as fans would have hoped for during his resurgence on SmackDown LIVE.
The whole Rusev Day act alongside Aiden English has arguably been some of the finest work the Bulgarian has been doing, while it shows just how versatile he can be with his characters, ranging from his days as the evil villain from Russia right through to a more comedic side.
One of the most important factors that has made Rusev Day so popular is the random inclusion of English, as the chemistry between he and Rusev is one of the many reasons why fans have been on board with this from the very beginning.
However, that could all be about to change based on the massive tease that was dropped on SmackDown LIVE this week which suggests some huge changes could be on the horizon for Rusev, which just so happens to link perfectly to one particular cryptic tweet about it being time for a change.
During a backstage segment with English and Rusev, Lana walked in wearing a Rusev Day t-shirt and told Rusev they needed to talk. Once English left, she put Rusev over and told him that something was holding him back - referring to his defeat against The Undertaker at the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
Rusev brought up having a holiday named after him as English walked back in, where it was clear that she was referring to English being the one holding Rusev back.
This is not only a massive hint that Rusev Day is edging closer to a break-up, but Lana also seems to have been repackaged again as she’s wearing Rusev’s merchandise while dropping the famous Russian accent too.
Judging by the reaction on social media, fans aren’t happy with the potential break-up, with the new Lana looking like a big reason why Rusev Day will come to an end.
Fans were always big fans of Lana when she was alongside Rusev, but there’s no telling what the reaction would be if she fits back into the role - with her normal accent - while throwing the former Vaudevillian out of the popular group.
