EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Alexander Rusev’s matches since his WWE debut one month ago could hardly be called competitive, due to the all-out destruction he has left in his wake. Nevertheless, at Extreme Rules, The Bulgarian Brute continued his reign of dominance with a huge 2-on-1 Handicap Match victory over R-Truth and Xavier Woods.

Before the match began, The Ravishing Russian, Lana, declared that she and Rusev would dedicate the match to their hero, Russian President Vladimir Putin, which elicited boos from the WWE Universe.

When R-Truth and Xavier Woods came out to the ring, Truth announced that they would be dedicating the match to the United States of America. This Cold War would get hot in a hurry; as the Americans made a beeline to their opponent, Rusev immediately caught Woods with a kick to the side of the head. This concussive blow knocked Woods into R-Truth sending both men flying off the apron before the referee could even start the match.

The Bulgarian Brute then brutalized Woods, thumping the Superstar’s face against the steel below the ring apron and suplexing him onto the unforgiving floor outside. This effectively made the match a one-on-one contest once R-Truth was pushed into the ring.

Rusev began the match hitting his already dazed opponent with clubbing fists to the back of the neck. When Rusev hurled his 300-pound frame with reckless abandon, R-Truth turned the tables by connecting with a boot. A dropkick off the second rope and a scissors kick maneuver nearly secured the big upset for the rapping Superstar.

Rusev’s explosive agility proved to be the difference in the contest. After a series of counters, both Superstars hit the ropes and ran across the ring, only for the Bulgarian Brute to launch himself skyward and impale Truth with a high leg to the skull. Lana gave Rusev the one-word command to “crush” and that was all the Ravishing Russian wrote. R-Truth tapped out mere seconds after Rusev’s Accolade was applied.

The European duo was not finished administering carnage. Lana gave Rusev another order outside the ring while Woods was being attended to by WWE medical personal, hitting the felled Superstar with a bone-rattling Samoan Drop. Somewhere in Moscow, President Putin is smiling.
