Rusev: Bio

Rusev

No, Rusev was not a superhuman specimen bred in some Bulgarian lab. He’s a flesh-and-blood WWE Superstar, which somehow makes him all the more terrifying.

An Eastern European nightmare straight out of the 1990s, this new red-and-green terror has been anything but cold since bursting onto the scene in 2014. Unbeaten for nearly a year after he debuted in WWE, Rusev made it a point to not only defeat his opponents, but to also “crush” them — guided the whole way by the commands of his ambassador and eventual wife, Lana.

His undefeated streak was eventually broken, but all that did was make this Bulgarian Brute even more dangerous in his quest to make his country proud and his enemies tremble. So, a word of advice if you find yourself in the ring with Rusev: Prepare heavily, pray passionately and tread lightly … or be crushed.

Rusev later transitioned from Raw to SmackDown LIVE, where he would immediately mix it up with the likes of John Cena and Randy Orton. Lately, The Bulgarian Brute has felt slighted by Team Blue management, which is no doubt a negative for the rest of the SmackDown LIVE locker room, as an angry Rusev will certainly be all the more likely to crush.
