WWE Scraps Recent Plans For Rusev Return


WWE has reportedly dropped plans to put Rusev into the WWE Championship picture despite him posting a video last week on his social media in which he demanded Shane McMahon give him a WWE Championship match at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view. He also claimed he would be appearing on last week’s SmackDown Live which didn’t happen

Rusev has been out of action since WWE Fastlane with an injury which he is now recovered from but it would appear any plans WWE had for him concerning the WWE title have been dropped as he has not been mentioned at all over the past couple weeks.

WWE is keen to move forward with their Jinder Mahal storyline instead.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
