Will Ryder use United States Champion Rusev's anger against him?
Hey, not for nothing, but Rusev seems to be in a pretty foul mood on Raw as of late. First, he accepted Zack Ryder’s WWE Battleground challenge and locked Long Island Iced-Z in the excruciating Accolade. Then, after Ryder helped Dolph Ziggler beat him on SmackDown last week, The Bulgarian Brute dominated The Showoff before and after the bell in tag team action Monday night on Raw.
Though Rusev is dangerous, his actions could prove more of a disadvantage than people think. The “Woo Woo Woo Kid” has unrelenting spirit and a few tricks up his sleeve to boot, and with Rusev so infuriated, Ryder might be able to get his fierce opponent to slip up this Sunday. Watch SmackDown Live tonight to see if the No. 1 contender can pick up momentum and move one step closer to another huge pay-per-view triumph.
