Rusev’s run with the United States Championship was short-lived, as Shinsuke Nakamura regained the title at Royal Rumble.
It all went down during the pre-show when Lana got involved in the match to stop Nakamura from pulling off the turnbuckle pad.
Nakamura began yelling at Lana and the “Bulgarian Brute” rushed in to attack his opponent from behind, but Shinsuke moved out of the way causing Rusev to run into Lana.
“The Artist” then capitalized on the moment with his finisher to pickup the win.
Watch the finish of the match below.
