Rusev has made his return to WWE television and with a new look.
During Monday’s episode of RAW in Knoxville, Tennessee at the Thompson-Boling Arena on the USA Network, WWE had The Street Profits hold a gender reveal party for the second child of Maria and Mike Kanellis. This is where Maria revealed that they are expecting a baby boy.
Maria then claimed that the father of the child was Ricochet, which led to Mike slapping the former WWE United Champion and challenging him to a match.
Rusev was last seen when he worked the 50-Man Battle Royal at the WWE Super ShowDown pay-per-view event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium. He’s also only appeared on a handful of live events since WrestleMania 35.
A few months ago it was reported that Rusev was away from WWE as he requested some time off. It was said that he was unhappy with his position in WWE.
This comes after some of his comments in media interviews and on social media.
This led to Ricochet beating Mike. Maraia would come out and claim that Ricochet wasn’t the father. Rusev came out and beat him down.
