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 arriving on the scene in 2014. Undefeated 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 fiancée, Lana. The Bulgarian Brute amassed both in-ring and international accolades alongside his rampaging run, from being named a bonafide hero by Russian president Vladimir Putin to a four-month reign as United States Champion.
His undefeated streak was 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.
