– As seen on WWE programming, Rusev has been wearing a faceguard while working his matches, but not wearing it at WWE Live Events.
Dave Meltzer speculated on Wrestling Observer Radio today that he is wearing it as a precaution, in case he took an accidental shot at his broken nose on television. WWE does not allow blood on TV and if he took a shot in the face, bleeding could occur.
Cody Rhodes wore a similar faceguard a few years back when he worked with the company, however his was gimmick related. That’s not the case with Rusev.
