There needs to be a big plan for Rusev at Survivor Series

We are just days away from Survivor Series and with the big Team Cena vs Team Authority match ahead, the WWE have a big problem they will have to find a way to solve.

Team Authority has certainly lined up a team of the biggest superstars in the WWE right now but there is one on the team tht poses a big problem.

That problem comes in the shape of the Bulgarian Brute, Rusev who is in my opinion, is the one to watch in this match.

As we will all know, Rusev is currently unbeaten in the WWE with the exception a few losses by disqualification, he is yet to be pinned or made to submit.

That sort of qualification makes him a very imposing figure in the five on five elimination tag team match.


With this kind of match comes the 'promise' that in order to be on the losing team, you will be pinned or made to submit, but with Rusev, I think this would ruin one of the WWE's best superstars right now.

Not that Rusev shouldn't ever lose, I just feel that he has been unbeaten for so long, when he finally does fall, it should be a more momentous occasion.

Despite what happens in the match, it will be overshadowed by the implications of either the Authority losing power, or Team Cena being 'fired'.

Therefore, for that reason I feel that to have Rusev get pinned or tap out in the match would be a major disappointment.

Rusev's way out?

The rumours have been around for a long time that Rusev's first loss will come at WrestleMania XXXI so if they have a plan for him to avoid defeat in this match, I can see two ways out.

The most likely in my opinion would be for there to be some form of altercation between Rusev and another member of Team Authority.

With so many egos in one team, it is always combustible and if he is to collide with a fellow team member, my moneys on Mark Henry.

Who knows what could set these guys off, a hard tag or a disagreement, nevertheless, when it happens I would expect to see Rusev leave the other man lying and simply walk away from the match.

In an equally similar situation, I could see Rusev arguing with a team-mate, then when Triple H steps in as a peace keeper, Rusev attacks the leader of the Authority.

Whilst it would receive a great reception from the fans, Lana could play it off as another act of rebellion against American leadership.

I personally hope that either of these happen since seeing Rusev lose in a tag team match where it will be overshadowed is a very wasted opportunity.
