CHICAGO – Since his WWE debut the night after WrestleMania 30 and his subsequent relocation to Moscow, Russia, Rusev has been running roughshod over WWE Superstars and proclaiming his allegiance to Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E was one Superstar that had enough of The Bulgarian Brute and came to the aid of both patriotic WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and Zack Ryder on Memorial Day. With both men waving their respective countries flags in Chicago, the two powerlifting powerhouses were primed for a devastating collision at WWE Payback.

Following the opening bell Big E, sporting a new red, white and blue singlet, and Rusev collided in the center of the squared circle. Both men traded huge right hands until Rusev got the upperhand with an impactful German suplex.

The former Intercontinental Champion turned the tides on the recently relocated Russian by taking Rusev down in the corner and followed it up with a diving spear through the middle rope to the floor and putting The Bulgarian Brute in his most prone position to date.

However, when WWE’s best bench-presser decided that it was time for his Big E splash, Rusev jumped to his feet and showed off his freakish athleticism with a flying savate kick to the head.

That’s when Big E heard two words he did not want to hear from The Ravishing Russian, Lana – “Rusev! Crush!”

Rusev was happy to oblige Lana, and applied a devastating Accolade to Big E. The former WWE Intercontinental Champion, much like every other Superstar that faced its wrath, was forced to tap out with the world watching.

After plowing through Big E – what’s next for the Bulgarian Brute?
