A couple of months ago, Roman Reigns ruined Rusev’s wedding ceremony. Well, consider the debt officially repaid. The Bulgarian Brute came to Raw this week, and in an attempt to showcase his championship credentials to the WWE Universe, he showcased pictures of his family on the TitanTron. After Rusev introduced the audience to his rowing champion mother, wrestling champion father, restaurateur brother, beloved Babushka and champion showdog Maguerta (no Dog Ziggler, sadly), Reigns made his entrance.
Interestingly enough, it was Reigns’ disrespect of Rusev — and not of his family — that raised The Super Athlete's hackles. But even more interestingly, Lana was the one who administered the first attack to the United States Champion. The Ravishing Russian slapped Reigns across the face and teed him up for a no-holds-barred beatdown at the hands of The Super Athlete that ended with Reigns taking a header into the steel steps and an Accolade on top of them.
