Rusev Vents About Frustration With Current Position in WWE (AUDIO)

rusev vents frustration wwe disappointment us title chasing glory

Rusev opened up in a new interview about being frustrated with his current position in WWE and disappointment over losing the United States Championship. 

The Bulgarian Brute was a guest on the most recent episode of Chasing Glory with Lillian Garcia and talked about these frustrations alongside his wife Lana.

“It meant a lot, it always does because it was the first championship I ever won,” Rusev said when Garcia asked him how he felt about dropping the belt. “It kinda hurts me because nobody cares about it. It feels like I’m the only one who cares about that title, and I wanted to make it bigger. I wanted to make it what it was when I wrestled John Cena for it, but it seems like every time somebody else has it nothing happens,” he added. “Now I’ve lost it I know the title is probably gonna get lost again, and I’m gonna get lost probably too.”

Rusev then expressed concern about how he’s been booked recently, and how his attempts to change his predicament have been futile.

“I do want to look my best, I do want to be at my best because I wanna be WWE Champion. I wanna be on top, I don’t wanna be forgotten. But that’s what irks me is that I do all these things but nothing changes and that’s where the frustration comes,” he said. “I’m trying something to catch Vince’s eye with this or that. We go, we pitch, we talk, it just never comes to anything”

Adding: “It was last year around WrestleMania and before that when Rusev Day started and everything and I thought it was my time and I keep pushing for it to be my time and I keep talking to everybody, but nobody wants to do anything.”

The former US champ also talked about how he’s constantly trying to improve his physique in spite of his obvious frustrations.

“I don’t know what is holding me back, to be honest. I really, really don’t,” he said.

    I had a feeling this stuff would happen. WWE signing and bringing up too much talent and so many guys get lost in the fray. I’m not surprised that some of them are starting to get frustrated.

    Not so happy Rusev day.

    Rusev has options if he is not happy.

  • Janay

    Honestly, Rusev is a great talent, he’s entertaining, great look, and has had some good matches, but that’s the problem. He hasn’t hit that next level or had that match that really stands out to show he’s a “top guy”. especially when you have your AJ’s, Seth’s, etc around. He just needs that one thing to take him from star to top star
