As you may have heard, Rusev and Lana got married over the weekend, which technically means The Super Athlete's United States Title retention against Mark Henry is part of his honeymoon. And he certainly earned it, withstanding a turn-back-the-clock performance from a reinvigorated Henry, who wasn’t willing to go quietly into the “mentorship” role Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley envisioned for him. His attempts to reopen the Hall of Pain nearly ended with Rusev defeated, though a kick to the back of Henry’s head allowed The Super Athlete to lock in the Accolade and retain his prize.
And then, things got interesting. As Rusev got on the mic to proclaim himself unbeatable, Roman Reigns swaggered down to the ring and threw hands with The Bulgarian Brute, ultimately laying him out with a Superman Punch off the steps as the big man tried to run. That honeymoon might be over sooner than Rusev would like.
