It is quite unfortunate that Rusev is out of action from the WWE for quite a while now. He was dealing with a shoulder injury at the time of Wrestlemania which forced him to undergo a surgery prior to the event. This led him to get sidelined from the mega PPV of the year.
Later, he was moved to Smackdown Live in the time of the Superstar Shakeup in the month of April. Since he was part of the exchange process between the two brands, we expected to see him on the show in the near future.
Quite expectedly, he used to appear on the show via the on demanding a championship opportunity at Money in the Bank PPV. But that storyline was abruptly taken off without any reason. The fans expected his presence, every week but he did not show up. WWE has not addressed the matter, further, at all.
As per the rumour mill, the doctors barred him from getting into in-ring competition at the very last moment. The creative did not have a clue about it, earlier and hence they started the angle for his return. However, that was wasted since Rusev could not make his way back in the WWE.
However, the recent updates from 434.com suggested that the Bulgarian Brute has been cleared to be back in action, last week. This was a green signal from the creative that he should be back in some capacity on the Tuesday Night Show.
Cagesideseats added to it pitching the exact time of his return. A source stated Rusev is scheduled to be back on this edition of Smackdown Live. It is going to be the post-Money in the Bank episode of the show where we will witness the fallouts from the exciting PPV.
There’s no indication whether he will be continuing with his pledge to get a championship opportunity in near future or not. Considering that Smackdown is the land of opportunity and Rusev needs to be pushed into the main event spotlight, it should be continued.
His wife, Lana has returned to the show, a few weeks ago and was given a title opportunity, abruptly. We can expect the same for ‘Handsome Rusev’, as well.
