Rusev Reveals That “Rusev Day” Was Only Supposed To Be A One Night Story


Rusev was recently interviewed by “Planeta Wrestling”. During the interview, he revealed that Rusev Day was never supposed to be a permanent fixture for his character. Here are the highlights from the interview:

On The Original Plans For “Rusev Day”:

It was supposed to be a one off, just a celebration after I beat Randy Orton and that was it. A few weeks after I was going “Rusev Day, Rusev Day” and people really started digging it, even in the backstage with the New Day and with Aiden signing “Rusev Day” helped. People just got it and loved the whole concept and it became really big.

On The Shift In Fan Response & His Desire To Elevate The U.S. Title:

I went from being the most hated or one of the most hated to now being praised. I loved being both.

Being the United States champion, it makes me elevate the title even more because at the end of the day that is what I wanna do. I wanna elevate the title whether it be the world championship, the universal championship, any of these titles. That is what it means to me and that is why every time I step foot in that ring I wanna have a great match to prove that this title belongs right there with all the rest.

On His Thoughts About His Match Against Nakamura At The Royal Rumble:

No, it is not gonna be easy but I got to figure out how to escape those things and count on my own. All the previous matches that we had were all great matches and I have no doubt we are gonna do just as good if not even better than that.
